"Santa's Workshop: Inside China's slave labor toy factories" (Part 2/2)

"'Santa's Workshop' takes you to the real world of China's toy factories. Workers tell us about long working hours, low wages and dangerous work places. Those who protest or try to organize trade unions risk imprisonment.

Low labor costs attract more and more companies to China. Today more than 75% of our toys are made in China. But this industry takes its toll on the workers and on the environment.

The European buyers blame bad conditions on the Chinese suppliers. But they say that increasingly hard competition gives them no option. Who should we believe? And what can you do to bring about a fairer and more humane toy trade?

Santa's Workshop is a film by Lotta Ekelund and Kristina Bjurling. Research by SwedWatch. Produced by Fair Trade Center and LottaFilm, with the support of the Swedish Trade Union Confederation’s cultural fund, the Study Promotion Association / Studiefrämjandet, the Swedish Consumer Agency and the consumer cooperative societies Svea, Stockholm, Norrort, Väst and Solidar."
