Labor rights group reports riot at China factory producing toys for McDonald's

Author: AFX News/XFN-Asia, Published on: 27 July 2006

More than 1,000 workers rioted over poor working conditions at a factory in southern China which produces toys for McDonald's and other firms, a US labor rights group said. The incident began on Saturday last week when workers at the Hengli Factory in Guangdong province protested over meager wages, lack of public holidays and poor living conditions, the New York-based China Labor Watch said... An official at the Hong Kong-based Merton Co Ltd, which owns the factory, told Agence France-Presse there had been an incident but refused to comment on the specific allegations.
