Ashley Graham's Barbie doll made in China sweatshops for Mattel?

You know that thigh gapless Barbie doll Ashley Graham is so proud of?

Probably made in a sweatshop for Mattel in China.

There’s little to be joyful about in China Labor Watch’s “Investigation Report in Four Toy Factories.” The account by the New York-based non-government research and advocacy group found that toys manufactured for Mattel, Hasbro, Disney, McDonald’s and Wal-Mart are done so in unacceptable environments.

“They are sweatshop conditions,” said Li Qiang, executive director of China Labor Watch, which conducted anonymous toy factory studies in May and September of this year. The report found that workers endured “heavy workloads,” “toxic conditions” and “extremely low pay.” For one month of 174 hours the base wage would be $300, according to the 50-plus page report.

The report calls the situation “a world of misery for toy factory workers.”
