    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.

    You should do a part two where you see if he's corrected his violations in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, then fine him for every damn day that has passed. Lol savage.

    But wait, how can Willy Wonka get all these fines if OSHA was created in 1971 and the movie is supposed to take place in 1970???? Answer me this @The Film Theorists

    Actually, Slugworth was working for Wonka.
    Also, Charlie didn’t steal, beg, or anything else Mat Pat said.


    the movies don`t need to follow the rules of the reality

    I thought the ompa lumpas weren't known about by people outside the factory so would that not show up on record as having no workers so they wouldn't come up on public record?

    Ok, not sure anyone but me and the Willy Wonka jr musical cast know this but.
    in the original manuscript 10 children suffer morbid punishments that should have killed them. Two kids falll in the chocolate river. two kids sent to the pounding and cutting room one kid gets stuck in chocolate mold. Thats only the least of it!
    So, I would assume that there'd be even more fines than the ones Matpat counts

    When Wonka started singing in the boat scene, the other actors didn’t know he was going to do that. The fear was real. And before his first appearance in the movie, they had never met Gene. They were actually confused when he came out hobbling on a cane, and the concern was real when he started to fall forward.

    Wonky would have been in deeper waters if the ADA had been in existence at the time of this film. As a business owner I have dealt with OSHA, and even worse, the fire Marshall’s, but as an artist who designs theme attractions, it is the ADA that can really kick your ass and make certain things impossible to do under those laws and their lawyers are ferocious.
    Any rides or walk-through attraction must be compliant with the ADA standard for wheelchairs. This becomes a real problem with any stairs or risers, since a ramp which has to have at least one foot of length for every inch that it rises can take up a lot of real estate quickly. It’s a bit disappointing since many attractions end up being scrapped because it becomes either too expensive or impractical to meet those demands.
    As a disabled person myself, I think it is good to try to include those with disabilities in everything possible, but to completely scrap an idea because a disabled person can’t access it is a bit extreme because those not disabled will never see that thing realized either. It becomes like a kid saying, if I can’t do it nobody can.
    It makes a lot of sense in most situations, but a park near my home had to scrap a proposed viewing tower because it was to be 20 feet tall and the cost of building a ramp that could reach the top with a hand powered wheelchair needed to be constructed. Not only did they not have enough funds raised for such an endeavor, but such a ramp would ruin the natural view that the tower was being made to see.
    The worse part about that project was that the tower would have sat at the top of a tall hill that overlooks a very large lake. To access the tower, one would have to hike through over a mile of dirt trails through the wilderness, like anyone with a wheelchair would be gliding over those single person wide sandy trails which go nearly straight up the 265 foot hill. It would be cheaper for the park to hire some muscle bound people to carry the disabled folks to the top.
    My wife and I have visited many state parks with even taller observation towers along the trails. None of these have to be compliant because they were constructed before the ADA became law, so they’re grandfathered in. Not once have we ever seen some person in a wheelchair miles down the dirt trails weeping at the base of a tower because they were unable to climb to the top.
    This is what happens to great ideas. Those who are in power to enforce them go crazy with their power and start to stretch the rules to insane distances. Sometimes a little common sense is in order, but we’re talking about government agencies which don’t play well with common sense.
    Wonky would have been hit with even heavier fines for not being ADA compliant once he opened the tour to the public, not to mention not having safety equipment and other customized workplaces to accommodate all of the dwarves he employs. The ADA would really frown on that.

    Legal minors can't commit or sign on as a party to a contract for such a contract would be void as a matter of law. Willy Wonka, as a minor, cannot contract as the owner of the factory. That would have to be his legal guardian, Grandpa. And it is to Grandpa that these government liens on the factory's assets would redound. So it's Grandpa who's fucked with all the corporate debt. :D

    To be fair, OSHA was established only 2 months after willy wonka was released. So they were still new to things and he had a little wiggle room and time to get things up to code due to standard deviation warnings.

    I always thought that these unsafe work conditions made up the largest part of the movie's charm and humor. Sure its black comedy but its so far over the top that I never had any issues with it.
    I just see it as a movie that demonstrates what can happen if you do stupid things you obviously shouldnt do.
    From an in-universe standpoint, if Wonka is aware of the hazards, its plausible why no one ever gets to enter or exit the factory. The only people in there are Oompa Loompas. They are tiny so the height of the hallways isnt an issue. They are far lighter than humans so the catwalks arent an issue. The factory is laid out for Oompa Loompa sized workers rather than human-sized ones. Its a dollhouse factory, people need to watch their steps.
    And I doubt Oompa Loompas fall under human protection laws because it is implied that no one knows they even exist.
    Also, of course Wonka could show a lot more concern about what happens to the children.
    But all of them end up in self-inflicted situations because they failed to listen. And the CEO and tour guide openly not giving a fuck, flying or otherwise, about the demise of his guests just plays into the whole over the top premise. Wonka has to be like that in order to fit into the factory.
