  • Nov.27.2017: The Dark Side of the Toy World: a race to the bottom. Mattel's CEO Christopher Sinclair earned $9,225,193, ie. $4,435 per hour — their Chinese workers earned $1.44 per hour. Mattel's net income was $318,022,000 for 2016. On Aug.11.2017, China Labor Watch dispatched investigators to 4 toy factories in China, which primarily supply Walmart, Disney, Mattel, Hasbro, Target, Big Lots, Costco, Bandai, Infantino, Zoli, Combi, Tomy, Hama, Lanvin, and others. Many of these companies have promised to uphold the rights of factory workers, establishing codes of conduct. But our findings suggest that they continue to blatantly violate the rights and interests of workers who manufacture their products. Excessive overtime hours remain an issue across all four factories. Workers exposed to toxic chemicals are normally not provided with adequate protective equipment. Dormitory conditions are substandard; 8+ workers are squeezed into a small dorm room, and 10+ share a bathroom. Emergency exits are also frequently obstructed. China Labor Watch.
