What’s it like to be a worker in China?

According to a New York-based labour rights group called the China Labor Watch (CLW), over 1,000 workers have rioted over poor working conditions at a factory in Guangdong province which produces toys for McDonald’s and other firms .
The CLW’s investigation found that employees at the factory typically work 11 hours a day, six days a week, and build up to 70 hours of overtime a month. This violates China’s labour law, which stipulates that the normal working week is 40 hours – and anything in excess of that is overtime – and 35 hours of overtime a month.
