    For everyone saying the factory isn't in America, it actually IS American, believe it or not. The movie goes to great lengths to try and make the location ambiguous (nonsense monetary symbols, ambiguous coins, a German shoot location but everyone speaking English) but the television coverage of the Golden Ticket search we see Charlie watching always references "here in America." And in the book, he finds a "dollar" in the gutter. So signs point heavily to Wonka's being an American company.

    I know this is a late comment but i was wondering if anyone from the US, Canada and anywhere else in the world had "Wonka Bars" basically it was a brand where they did things like
    Caramel Hat Trick.
    Cookie Creamery.
    Mudpuff Caramel Stuff.
    Nutty Crunchilicious.
    Triple puff Chocolate Whipple.
    They were awesome and discontinued in 2010. Anyone else get these?

    Sam Hunter 6 days ago

    Yeah you make a good point but why do you think Wonka has tried to keep his factory gates shut for so long. So no health inspector can find out his unethical health and working conditions. That’s why he only opens the factory once to get his successor Charlie and make all the brat’s lives shit and warn the kids to smarten up and not say anything or they will experience the wrath of Wonka.and why else would Wonka send an Oompa Loompa with each parent and kid to manipulate the parents and make sure nothing is said to the police of what illegal actions happened in the factory

    Ya also gotta think about the sales he's making off of the contest. Even if he doesn't immediately pass off the company to some unsuspecting kid, he'll have enough money to either deal with the fines, fix his workplace conditions, or stash until he passes the factory on.

  • Heather Morgan

    You forgot all the labor violations. His employees, the Oompa Loompas, aren't being paid. Their payment is their room and board. They are literal slaves (in the book, they're actually African pygmies, because Roald Dahl was highly problematic).

    Another violation I noticed that didn't get mentioned was with the stairs at 4:55. They are of uneven height, which is illegal. Stairs have to be of uniform height, otherwise you are much more likely to trip and fall.

    Can we just address the boat ride. When MatPat says that it is ok, it is in fact, also possibly contaminating the chocolate even further. Considering that this boat has been around from months or possibly years before these events, they have been selling potentially contaminated chocolate for a while. The boat has obviously been washed, cleaned and maybe even repainted during its time, there fore getting leftover soap or anything of the sort into the chocolate
