The Toy Industry in China: Undermining Workers' Rights and Rule of Law-Toy. Web. 31 May 2012. <http://www.chinalaborwatch.org/pro/proshow-122.html>. This is a valid source because it was written by the China Labor Watch which is a well known organization dedicated to exposing and stopping the harsh working conditions in China. Beneficial Body There have been two main disadvantages of Hasbro making toys in china, which are child labor and Harsh working conditions. The Hasbro toy factory in the impoverished Guangxi Province hired 1,000 junior high school students to work in its factory (Bardosa). This shows that globalization has had negative effects because foreign Hasbro factories in China cause others to commit crimes such as child labor. Secondly, China has harsh working conditions such as work schedules that surpass the legal limit by at least 36.5 hours per week, pay rates as low as only 59 percent of the local minimum wage, unsanitary cafeterias, dorm rooms housing 22 people each, and employees forced to foot the entire cost of their work-injury insurance and, in some instances, lack of insurance of any kind (Toy industry in China). This reenforces the idea that globalization has had negative effects because it has led to disgusting living conditions. one Conclusion The toy production in China, overall has more problems due to lack of labor rights. Children are forced to work 14 hours a day and usually have to work longer to make enough money to survive. Many people lose fingers in machines that produce the toys. Instead of receiving a break due to their injuries they are yelled at by their supervisors and are forced to continue working. Hasbro's transformers from hell Ever wondered where the little transformer toys come from? or other marvels action figures? Hasbro is an American multinational toy and board game company.

Due to cheap labor in China the people in the US receive cheap toys which saves them money. Hasbro corporation can make a greater profit by paying the workers lower wages. The Chinese economy benefits from this because China exports the Hasbro toys to foreign countries. Thus, globalization has helped developing countries like china improve an take a step closer to being a developed country. two three (cc) photo by medhead on Flickr Works Cited Negative effects of Globalization The Chinese toy labor gives the American consumers cheap toys and brings kids lots of joy.
