ILO violation 138,29,87,98 : Cards, gift boxes and paper goods sold by Disney are manufactured in China by Yiuwah Stationery in Dongguan. Yiuwah illegaly hires workers below 15, some are hired at the age of 13 years-old. Yiuwah often fails to provide a labor contract to its workers and overtime is mandatory. In June 2009, one worker was crushed by the machine she was working on. Official labour inspectors found widespread labor and safety violations at the plant.: China
2009
ILO violation 87,98,26 : In the 11 sub-contracting factories manufacturing the Donald or Minnie cuddly toys for Disney in the area of Shenzhen, the workers receive wages lower than the minimum legal, that is to say 67 euros per month. Overtime is compulsory and not paid. Some work 30 hours in a row. Others must take 16 days off without salary.: China

ILO violation 87,98,26,1,131 : Disney toys are produced at the Dawei factory in Dongguan, China under abusive and illegal sweatshop conditions: Workers are at the factory 96 hours a week, routinely toiling 15 ½-hour shifts, from 8:30 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. All overtime is forced. Any worker missing a shift will be docked three days' wages. Workers are cheated of up to 40 percent of the wages legally due them, paid below the minimum wage and shortchanged on their overtime pay. A worker arriving 30 minutes late will also be docked three days wages. Eight workers share each primitive dorm room, sleeping in double-level bunk beds which are infested with bed bugs.: China

ILO violation 1 : On 22 July workers from the Merton Company Ltd. (a/k/a Hengli Factory) which employs some 10,000 workers in Dongguan, Guangdong Province and which reportedly supplies toys to Disney, McDonalds, Mattel and Hasbro, protested against low wages and poor living conditions. In the evening, factory security and police sent in riot control vehicles and personnel to control the riot but the following day the conflict intensified and some one thousand workers joined the affray with scores injured. Scores of workers were then detained but later believed to be released.: China

ILO violation 1,131 : Employees at a factory in southern China which produces toys for Disney and other firms typically work 11 hours a day, six days a week, and rack up to 70 hours of overtime a month. This violates China's labor law, which stipulates workers shall not work for more than 40 hours a week and 35 hours of overtime a month, it said. The factory deducts salary if workers refuse to work overtime and does not pay workers for taking national holidays, vacation or sick leave, according to the group. Overtime is not paid 1.5 times the regular rate as required by the law, it said. There is no base salary for workers, who are paid at piece rate. Salaries range between 600 and 800 yuan (75 and 100 usd) a month. More than 1,000 workers rioted over poor working conditions on July 2006. It took more than 100 factory policemen, riot squads and security guards to control the situation. Many people were injured and dozens of workers were arrested, according to China Labor Watch.: China
