The Dark Side of the Glittering World: A Report on Exploitation in Toy Factories in China

January 14, 2020 FR EcoVadis FR


The toy industry’s long-lasting existence has brought joy to children all over the world. However, when we take into account the supply chains that produce these toys, we see Chinese workers being forced to work overtime to make ends meet. Since 2001, China Labor Watch has published a series of toy factory investigation reports, exposing many immoral and illegal practices. Through these reports, we hope to improve workers’ working and living conditions by revealing how these major toy factories exploit their workers shamelessly. Sadly, even though China Labor Watch has been monitoring these major toy factories for a number of years, a lot of issues persist today.
