    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.

    The thing I wonder is if the Oompa Loompas are even human at all and not just beings created by Wonka. Since if he can create candy that can never ever loose it's flavour, I can see this being a possibility. Who knows.

    Having done a lot of chocolate work.... there’s no way that river is real chocolate. Far too much water. Water doesn’t mix well with chocolate... it ruins it actually... It’s likely there for show....

    Wonka is the reason my sister has so many cavities. I mean, who on earth would want a place where everything is candy. A few things you will get is type 2 diabetes, tooth loss, tooth decay, and you being ill for a long time.

    The books were made in 1964 which the movie was based off and OSHA was invented in 1970 so it was technically made before OSHA so I disproved your theory in one comment

      If Willy Wonka did smuggle the Oompa Loompas illegally to make them indentured slaves, osha violations should be the least worry on Willy's head. And if this novel had been set 50 years ago or earlier, a crime like this would have grave consequences for the gentleman's head.

    In 1971 these violations didn't exist so it would've been possible that black market Wonka bars could be in circulation. So I'm saying there's still a chance!

    They did die:
    Veruca: falling on a pile of golden eggs, solid golden eggs, and also the chance of being burnt to death
    Mike: Being pulled apart from a tally pulling machine
    Violet: possible blood lettings
    Augustus: lack of oxygen in pipe, boiler chance.
    Wonka boat: Not enough seats for 11 people, only enough for 9 (Wonka and 4 ticket winners + parents)
    WonkaWash: only seats 5 people
    Miranda Piker and Mr. Piker: Died from being squished into Spotty Powder

    IF Charlie does inherit the factory then he also inherits the bodies from the children beneath the factory

    I feel like there is something magical about Willie Wonka. That's how he can avoid fines from OSHA. They are unable to get by his magical defenses and people love his candy so much so they let it slide since they don't really know what goes on inside the factory anyway.

    The book Charile and the chocolate factory was wrote in 1964 and the OSHA act did not become in effect until 1970, so technically speaking none of these violations wouldn't matter in this time period unless it wasn't based on the books time period.

    When I was little I would always think that Willy did it on purpose and wanted to make the people eating the chocolate would eat kids, I know it sounds crazy but hear me out he had the (however you spell the little guys) didn’t even try to help the kids, one even died because Willy opened the furnace on purpose. So that’s why that is my least favorite movie and my family doesn’t understand why, YEET
