The headline reads “Chinese Children Sold Like Cabbages into Slavery“. For those of you that have followed my blog on a regular basis, you know that I’m a proponent of banning all imports from China until they can bring their safety standards up. 19 people are dead from contaminated medication from China. All manner of dishes, utensils, and children’s toys have arrived contaminated with lead. We’ve been shipped toothpaste laced with pesticides, mouth wash laced with industrial waste, and shoes that left chemical burns on peoples feet because the plastic injection molding was seen as a good way of disposing of hazardous wastes.
Now, we find that they’re selling children as young as 7 into slavery to make this substandard crap. Think about that for a moment. Some second grader is being made to work 300 hours a month to make these shoddy, dangerous goods. That’s an 80 hour work week people. That’s difficult for an adult to maintain for any length of time. I know, I’ve done it. Yet this little 7 year old kid is supposed to do it. WTF???? When are we going to ban products from China? The best way to end this slavery is to take away the market for the goods.
