They're a bunch of short orange people whom he rescued from living in trees and eating mushed caterpillars that tasted like shit. He pays them in chocolate and houses them all in his factory. Presumably, they get paid more than minimum wage if you come up with a chocolate-to-dollar conversion ratio - however, all they are fed is chocolate, so I'd imagine they are either all malnourished or have a very unique digestive system. It is unknown whether they get medical care or if wounded Oompa-Loompas are just thrown into the incinerator. As for other infrastructures, there's nothing in canon to indicate they do anything besides sing like creeps and do factory work.

Everlasting Gobstopper is Oompa-Loompas.

I always thought the reason why the chicken needed to cross the road was a bit anticlimactic.

So lets see

Willy Wonka
1) Is conducting slavery
2) Child Endangerment and Endangerment as well
3) Has an illegal monopoly
4) Hosted a SHAM competition where he picked the winners

Honestly why is he the good guy?

If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the Gods, and the nights will flame with fire.

Its kinda silly to complain that a friendly NPC isn't a well designed boss fight.

Just noticed Gendou is wearing Mickey Mouse's gloves, complete with the 3 lines between the knuckles and wrists.

Quote from: Chesterton
For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.
