Signed. This is the horrific conditions that use to be in the USA. Children working in sweat shops and coal mines for less than the adults wages. Conditions so horrible that many died before the age of 22 years. The Chinese will have to stand up to this, Unions, and we in the United States have let too many of our rights as workers go by the boards. If the Americans don't smarten up our wages will continue to drop and as it is too many are working full time and still can't pay their bills. These people need to raise their standards and we need to stop lowering ours to meet theirs.

This is what Romney wants for the USA. A truly Dickensian prospect the author is right. We need to uplift the conditions of the Chinese workers or else the conditions in the developed countries will fall to meet theirs. Unfortunately there is no such thing as patriotic or ethical business billionaires. With them there's "one thing counts, In the bank, lots of money". I probably misquoted Fagan's song from "Oliver".

Petition signed. These companies that continue to exploit child labor are ill minded. I'd like to see this own kid/.grandkids be subjected to this and see how they'd react. Thanks Nancy

Done. BTW; -I began to work 45 hours a week when I was 14, so I guess I was child labor...?

Maybe I should add: -That was in 1961, and of course I don't think children should work today.
-Let children be children!

Happy to sign and share on fb.
It would seem to the US is headed (back) to these deplorable conditions--if some politicians have their way, our "poorer and less-advantaged" children will have NO education, and be expected to work until they die at one menial job or another.
People, we really can't allow that to happen!
