Disney Pulls Orders, Chinese Factory Closes

2 Feb

DIS News reports: Hundreds protest after closure of factory that made Disney souvenirs in China.

[Vivian] Yau [spokeswoman of Students and Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior, a Hong Kong-based labor group] said Huangxing once employed more than 1,000 workers and used to make merchandise like key chains for the Walt Disney Co.

The Post quoted an unidentified worker who said that about 80 percent of the factory’s goods were once made for Disney. But Disney canceled all orders after the factory was accused of exploiting workers, the paper quoted the employee as saying.
