I’m gonna do replies today, I promise. I really truly pinkie promise.
I’m not afraid to talk about this stuff because my great grandparents and great great aunts fought with the communist party of Denmark to take the Nazis out of power and save 12000 Scandinavian jews. They succeeded. I’m super proud of that.
I can’t believe I lost a follower for communism.
Listen, I literally have a link to marxists.org on my description, what did you think I was doing? Making a joke about the right to democratic control of the products of one’s labor? Nope. No jokes here. It was all a plot to tell you about the evils of capitalism.
I love Sinbad because he’s serious about the same thing’s I’m serious about - worker’s rights, communism, cute things, anti-imperialism, Ja’far
At least it’s character-appropriate that I often go on long rants about labor practices on this blog.
Sorry, when the passion starts I can’t switch windows.
hiring child labor is certainly not a thing that most families anywhere in the world are able to do. hiring labor period isn’t really something most people have access to. most child laborers work for factories which are contracted to large foreign companies.
Trust me if I had control over anything I’d prevent it, but ask any of your Asian friends whether they are from the Philippines or India and they will tell you that their families hire these child labourers. That’s the custom there. They take underprivileged children to work for them and in exchange their families get money.
It really sucks, I wish our 8 year old was in school, but that’s what they do here, not just my family but every slightly wealthy family.
I will document everything and make a post so this issue gets recognition.
"It’s the norm here so we do it" I’m sorry but no.
Child labour is inhumane. An 8 year old should be out playing and having fun and not slaving away to make money for his family. Care enough about the 8 year old working for you? Give his family money, support them, and don’t hire him or any child to do child labour.
Do you have any reading comprehension skills?
I came to this country for a vacation to visit my family and I am witnessing these acts. I do NOT condone child labor. I did NOT hire this child to work for me. ME, personally? I didn’t do THIS.
But my uncle? Other families? YES, they have been hiring these children, because HERE in Bangladesh that is a popular practice.
Now, ofcourse it isn’t RIGHT. Ofcourse I am against it. Ofcourse, I am documenting everything to bring some justice.
Honestly, this is why people don’t like tumblr anymore. Because some users take people’s thoughts and actions no matter how much of a good intention they may have and make it seem as if it’s the most offensive, grossest thing they have ever seem.
You guys need to calm down and think things through before you go around throwing out words about how REPULSED you are at something you clearly didn’t understand the meaning behind.
don’t you know? When you visited you should have gained magic ghost powers to immediately stop what was happening because CLEARLY since you were there and observed it you can immediately stop it and fix this custom no questions asked, yep yep yep.
I am interested to see what you documented to to see where it goes. Anyone who follows you knows the attention your posts end up getting for other sites and such, so this could be big.
The people in the wrong here aren’t the Bangladeshi, many of whom may not have much choice in the matter. It’s the companies who hire these kids - OFTEN AMERICAN COMPANIES.
(On the other hand, I know a LOT of people from Asia and none of their families bought labor from children. That said all of these people’s families were subsistence farmers or laborers themselves so I can’t speak to the wealthy experience)
