Description

Dateline "illustrates that at the heart of the hand wringing over child labor, hazardous working conditions and exploited laborers is a serious question of corporate ethics. By targeting the strictest consumer-regulated industry in retail, the toy industry, Dateline makes the point that multinational manufacturers such as Disney and Mattel (whose buyers visit the factories on a regular basis to (ensure) quality control) know that abuses exist. ... Dateline posed as BANDIT TOYS, and went undercover into toy factories and textile mills in Indonesia and China and found a host of violations of (Toy Manufacturers Association)'s code of conduct and more importantly, local law."
