Wal-Mart Watch: Asia Labour News offers a survey of recent stories in the Chinese press shedding light on the company's miserable labor conditions: Wal-Mart has been attracting criticism in the Chinese press for some time now, mainly over its refusal to allow the Chinese trade union to organise workers in its stores. However, the last few months have seen the emergence of Wal-Mart stories in the Chinese media focussing on workplace conditions in factories supplying to the US giant. This turn of events has been the result of Chinese journalists following up the findings released in report by the National Labor Committee in early February. Entitled Toys of Misery 2004, the report was compiled with assistance from China Labour Watch, a well known labour rights organisation in the US.
