HERE you will find a report compiled by the US Department of Labor about child and forced labor around the World. I remember when I was in college we had an interesting discussion about child labor. Someone rightly pointed out a few things: **We also have child labor, as in kids working on family farms, often doing long hours and some of the most dangerous work there is. **Some of the facilities in which the 13-year-olds work offer living conditions superior to their homes: showers, adequate food, warm enough. **Many of the child labor examples are in countries where children would work anyway, if not in those facilities than in some other capacity. Not to say it's right, it just isn't such a simple thing as to make a blanket statement "Child labor is wrong." You can share your experiences or observations on the subject. But the point is, we profit from these abuses.
