Disney: be nice to the workers making my toys

Disney is a leading entertainment company, enchanting millions of kids with its movies and toys.  But, Disney is far from a leader in how it treats the workers making its toys.

A recent China Labor Watch report entitled “The Dark World of Disney” found appalling labor conditions at two of Disney’s supplier factories in China.  Workers in the factories work 11-hour days for the equivalent of $1.32 US dollars per hour, and are required to work overtime.  They are exposed to toxic chemicals without protection or any training in how to handle them.  Workers sleep in overcrowded dormitories with unsanitary facilities and are fed substandard food.

Something is rotten in the Magic Kingdom when Disney CEO Bob Iger made $45 million dollars last year, which equals $21,634 dollars per hour, yet workers in Disney’s factories made $1.32 per hour.  That massive disparity is wrong, and Disney needs to change the way its toys are made. 

Take action with Green Americans nationwide today to demand that Disney protects the workers that makes its toys.
