Dirty Toys Made in China report

Popular toys…are made under harsh and abusive conditions at the Dongguan Zhenyang Wanju Limited factory in China by young workers forced to toil 12 to 13-plus hour shifts… earning as little as $1.36 an hour…

New workers receive little or no training, even for work in dangerous departments. Workers…identified many health hazards at Zhenyang.  But the factory has no health and safety committee…The workers do not use earplugs despite the fact that noise levels are extremely high in some departments… In the spray paint department, the workers do not always have fans.  Nor do they have masks. The spray paint and printing work rooms are full of fumes from chemicals including industrial alcohol, phenylenediamine and sodium peroxide…In the Assembly Department and warehouse, there are locks on the fire safety doors…

Workers found a water pipe spewing what they believe to be sewage from one of the factory buildings into a nearby stream.  The discharge is yellow and has a putrid smell…
