Reuters reports China-based labor groups have criticized Walt Disney Co over conditions at a small number of its local suppliers, highlighting issues such as low wages, high rates of injury and health risks from exposure to chemicals and dust. Disney, set to open a $5.5 billion theme park in mainland China on Thursday, said it took any violation of labor regulations “seriously” and that it would investigate any allegations against its suppliers. A report from Hong-Kong based advocacy group Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM) said some workers at eight Disney suppliers it had investigated were forced to work long hours and paid wages below the minimum legally allowed. Injury levels were also high.
