A Second Attempt at Looking for Mickey Mouse’s Conscience – A Survey of the Working Conditions of Disney’s Supplier Factories in China

SACOM published the first research report entitled “Looking for Mickey Mouse’s Conscience – A Survey of the Working Conditions of Disney’s Supplier Factories in China” in August 2005 (in both Chinese and English, downloadable from Disney’s labor practices came under widespread scrutiny from Hong Kong groups and the international community. The investigation discovered all 4 of the target factories were in serious violation of Chinese Labor Law: wages were far below the statutory minimum, working hours greatly exceeded the maximum standard, and occupational injuries were prevalent, the most serious of which was a factory that averaged 2 to 3 occupational injury cases every week. After the publication of last year’s report, SACOM [...]

The Working Condition of Motorola’s Supplier Factory in China(2006)

To: Edward J. Zander, Chairman and CEO of Motorola, Inc.

Our investigation exposes that Hivac Startech Film Window (Shenzhen) Co. Ltd. has seriously violated workers’ basic labour rights and human rights. Now, 9 women workers, in their very young age, have already contracted an occupational disease. Both their bodies and their spirits have been deeply wounded. One of them was forced to abort her child, causing serious physical pain and psychological trauma.

The factory continues to shirk its responsibility, to maliciously repress and harass the victims as well as new workers, and to disregard occupational health and safety. We are very concerned that more workers will become occupational poisoning victims and more families will have to endure [...]

“We Want Non-Sweat, Non-Toxic, Non-Monopolistic, Clean Computers!” —–We Urge All Tertiary Educational Institutions to Bear Their Social Responsibilities

The computer industry has been growing tremendously in the past twenty years. Computers have become an intrinsic part of everyday life and the ability to use the computer is now a requirement for tertiary education. The electronics industry is a high-tech, high-skill professional field. In 2005, the top three computer brands in the world – Dell, HP and IBM – garnered a total of US$200 billions in sales. However, their astronomical profits are based on the exploitation of workers and the environment in the developing countries. Computer brand names maximize their profit margins through retaining the high value-adding parts of their business and outsourcing the lower-end production to developing countries. Factories in the developing countries compete to [...]

A Glimpse of Disney Factory Life in Shenzhen, China: “Those with Justice”
