WORKING CONDITIONS AND FACTORY AUDITING IN THE CHINESE TOY INDUSTRY [11 December 2014]

http://www.cecc.gov/events/hearings/working-conditions-and-factory-auditing-in-the-chinese-toy-industry

 

 

The vast majority of toys bought and sold in the United States are made in China. In November, the labor rights NGO, China Labor Watch, issued a report alleging poor working conditions at four Chinese factories that manufacture toys for several major toy companies and retailers. This hearing will examine these allegations, what the toy industry is doing to audit factories in China and address reports of poor working conditions, and the effectiveness of private-sector auditing and business codes of conduct in China.
