Disney Investigates Alleged Labor Abuses

From the Associated Press: HONG KONG - "The Walt Disney Co. said Friday it has hired an auditor to investigate claims that its Chinese contractors pay workers below minimum wage, demand excessive overtime and cheat labor monitors by faking pay slips."

Holy crap! I for one am heartily shocked at this report. I mean, workers getting screwed? That's preposterous! Except that China has a long history of screwing its workers and we've hardly been any better, just look at Wal-Mart.
