This is nothing new. Reports of abuse of workers, skirting labor laws, child labor, slave labor conditions, incredibley long work weeks, this is behind the sweatshop practices in factories in China which produce most of the toys that are marketed on the planet, including virtually all the toys sold by the Disney and Mattel corporations.
For years, these companies have stated that they will investigate the situations at the factories they employ to produce their toy products, and yet the allegations continue to come to the public through the press. Will anything ever be done to ensure some basic standards in the toy factories these companies utilize or is humanity something that doesn't suit the bottom line.
