‘makeITfair report reveals violations of workers’ rights in game
console and portable music players manufacturing in China. This is the
first study on working conditions related to these products which are
highly popular amongst the youth.
The legal minimum salary has become the standard, ranging from 72 to
87 euros per month, for a workweek in the studied factories. The
workers worked a substantial amount of overtime; 10 to 11 hours per
day, six days per week. Due to the very low wages workers do not have
an other option but work inhumane overtime hours and live in factory
dormitories without any privacy.
…. A half of the portable music players and most game consoles are made in China mostly by big contract manufacturers.’
