I mean we shouldn't take kids out of school, but if a kid can manage to hold a job around school hours and still do their homework it might be character-building.

if they can work it into their lives it can promote productivity and make them more likely to secure future jobs.

Apparently anyway

You are welcome to send your kids to my sweatshop.

Also is child molestation really abuse? They might enjoy it or even forget all about it over time.

I think it entirely depends on the 'innocence' of the child in question.

still a pretty taboo thought.

Molesting kids is universally and unambiguously bad, let's not make this thread weird okay.

It's acceptable in some cultures, but they are usually considered to be uncivilized and backwards by the rest of the world. Cultures like tribal Africa, untouched Pacific islands, the Catholic church, etc.

It's scary that they're letting Neo go to school to be a doctor. The Dutch must have some really low standards. I wouldn't even trust him to take blood pressure.

Yes, let children be children for as long as possible we don't need to start killing their souls at an even younger age than we already do

And this is coming from someone who genuinely hates children

What you described isnt child labor, its having a job, pretty damn big difference.
A job is when you choose to work along-side school to get extra money because you want to, child labor is when children are forced to work against their will, in horrible conditions while getting almost no pay and not being allowed to attend school.
So yeah, BIG difference.

I say no to child labor. As an American, we can't have the children stealing jobs from our Mexicans.

child labour isn't abuse, but as children are generally not as strong/resistant as worker's unions, it has the potential to become abuse

Did the child decided to take the job by himself or did the parents make him or something?

Also, what ages are we talking about?

In China they recently banned smoking at school. Fortunately, the children can still smoke at their jobs lolololololol

but yeah i think including kids in collective work actions is very good like when elementary school classes go clean up wild waste dumps around the area and help paint and build shit around their school

but as soon as you make it a 'work for x hours to get y amount of cash' thing you're just doing more harm than good

Child labor is like polygamy. It isn’t automatically a bad thing. But in practice it’s usually a way for horrible people to gain by abusing children, and it isn’t an easy thing to police, so the best way to deal with it is to outlaw it entirely.

Child labor is pretty bad, especially in economically developed nations. We don't need child labor to supplement their household income or help out with agricultural work nearly as much as we did prior to industrialization. Kids would work, but they would typically work with their parents for the most part. But once we got industrialized, they were much more likely to work in dangerous conditions away from home. Then we got our shit together and passed loads of labor laws.

So, uh, capitalism would have abused workers, both child and adult, without regulation, but it also made people wealthy enough to not need to have loads of children to survive.
