When Mr. Wonka visited Loompaland and saw the deplorable living conditions the Oompa Loompas were experiencing, he invited them to work at his factory so they could leave the awful place they called home and the predatory animals that lived there, known as the Whangdoodles, Hornswogglers, and Snozzwangers.
Because of the possibility of economic espionage by his candy-making competitors, Mr. Wonka in the book exclusively hires Oompa Loompas to work at his plant. They are paid in their preferred meal, cocoa beans, which were hard to come by in Loompaland, and are only knee-high with bizarre haircuts. Despite the fact that the Oompa Loompas once solely spoke their native tongue, Oompa-Loompish (which Mr. Wonka was fortunately fluent in),

However, in Quentin Blake’s paintings, both male and female Oompa-Loompas are depicted rolling away Violet Beauregarde when she transforms into a blueberry. Only the male Oompa-Loompas are seen working in the factory. The females most likely stay in the settlement that was momentarily seen from the Great Glass Elevator.
Additionally, they enjoy singing, practical jokes, and mischief. Each child leaves while singing disparaging songs while a drumbeat plays in the background.
In the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, they are portrayed as orange-skinned characters with green hair and white eyebrows and were portrayed by Rudy Borgstaller, George Claydon, Malcolm Dixon, Rusty Goffe, Ismed Hassan, Norman McGlen, Angelo Muscat, Pepe Poupee, Marcus Powell, and Albert Wilkinson. In the film, Vermicious Knids were also the Oompa-Loompas’ enemies alongside the Whangdoodles, Hornswogglers, and Snozzwangers.
In the 2005 film adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory starring Johnny Depp, the Kenyan actor Deep Roy played all 165 Oompa Loompas. Deep Roy had to take Pilates and dance classes for this role which involves numerous songs and dances. Also, he was dressed as some female Oompa-Loompas that worked in the administration offices.
Oompa Loompas are extremely racist. This is shown in the 2002 comedy special “Charlie: Back to the Factory”, where the Oompa Loompas are seen saying multiple racial slurs.
