I go to work everyday, and I listen to how unfair management is and how unfair upper management is. Then I see these stories of REAL hardship and REAL issue plaguing workers, I find myself thinking what on earth do I have to complain about and the employee's at work. All I can think is that we have NOTHING to complain about where I work. This is true hardship.
This information just brings to light how good we had it as kids! I mean sure you know this kind of stuff actually happens but you dont really stop to think or process it and think about until you read something like this. I remember how my brothers would always whine about how my parents and I had cell phones and they didnt because they were to young, or they'd yell and throw tantrums about small things like not having a flatscreen tv like we did, he should have been glad he didnt have to work a 9 years old.
Not much different than working at Lowes
I think it\'s good for them. I worked for my dad at a very young age. I earned my own money and was proud of it. When that\'s what you\'re used to, hothing wrong with that. Plus it gives them direction and something to do. At ten, I recall working at school, coming home and working late hours with my family. It kept me out of trouble. I do feel sorry that the girls in that country don\'t have nice things like girls in America, but is that a bad thing? When I look around at what\'s happening around me in our country, I think those girls working in the sweat shops most likely have it together more than some of the girls do here. Just my opinion.
Your way of rationalization is the problem, hand in hand with your blissful ignorance. I wanted to puke reading your comment. The girls over there in Bangladesh do not have the luxury of even being children. They are forced to work their childhood away, they are sent to go work in sweatshops, brothels amongst many other horrors. Do not ignorantly compare your childhood to that of these children.
So Sad they work to make some one there rich & some one here rich & their product leaves their country & their labor does not service the people of their country.
When I was in public elementary school I was taught about the evils of child labor and then was immediately sent door to door selling candy bars to make money for the school.
toilets are holes in the ground there the bending helps get it out and you dont have to touch your butt on the same toilet the person before you did 5 minutes earlier.
It is sad that young children are so exploited. On the other hand here in America children are spoiled, they never get told no about anything, spend their spare time playing video games and eating to the point of obeseity, ignore most authority figures and grow up thinking they are owed whatever their little hearts desire. Finally when they commit a crime the judge surely tells them NO with a stint in jail where they learn to be hard and go out and commit even more crimes. It's the parents fault that kids are they way they are these days. They should have discipline, chores and responsibilities, punishment when they are insolent and disrespective of their elders and authority figures and be taught how to become a productive members of society, instead of criminals, deadbeat dads and moochers off the system.
Oh, but I love my $6 shirts! The US is such a sheltered country that until you go to a country like this, there is no real way to understand it. Yet everyone in the US is loves to buy designer clothes, purses and shoes. I remember being in Asia in 1996 and watching the same factory making cheap clothes right next to the "name brand" stuff that costs 5 to 10 times as much. But since dumb people are willing to pay more for a name on their clothes, companies make tons of profit as it costs them the same to make the store brand stuff as it does the name brand stuff. We sit here and chastise the companies for the conditions, but without the demand the U.S. has for cheap labor and low prices the companies wouldn't exist.
