Then again, they still bring children into this world with the parents knowing the conditions they will be brought into.

Also yes I am aware that some women do not choose to have the child, it's forced upon them and this statement is not directed at them in anyway.

Bro i thought the same,bet then look at us we have the right to have kids,there human like us so theu do too,but as a parent you wouldnt have kids if you knew that was gunna happen to them as soon as they are able to carry a sack or use a shovel,we work less harder for a thousands times there wage,the money thats made from there work aswell,why arnt they paid fairly and looked after thats my rant,its so wrong man. If we knew where half of the things we call essential in life came from. So sad and wrong

Unfortuantely, this is the world we live in and if companies paid these workers more, the prices we pay would rise and people would complain, but I would rather have these workers paid more and have fair conditions to work in.

No, it does not make me wanna throw my phone. I worked to pay for my phone, they are working for something as well. Manual labors teaches good discipline. I have one daughter and another child on the way, and they will work for their wants as I did as a kid. Every country has different jobs, this is one that specific country does. That isn't our problem.

May seem heartless of me, but this is how the world works.

Like I and many others will say, it is how the world works. I grew up on a farm working since I was able to pick up a pitch fork or a shovel. Yes, I have worked numerous 12 hours even up to 18 hour days. It rough, but you know what, it taught me a lot. It is good discipline, I wish more children grew up in a manual labor life style instead of having everything handed to them.

Not everywhere that is not industrialized is unfit to live in, we've had to develop systems for clean water since we began as a species. If we could snap our fingers and give everyone food, water and easy lives we would but thats not how it works.
we have built up our country so that children do not have to work, not that long ago children did have to work,hunt or whatever. I think we're losing track of what the world really is because of how where we live has advanced.

You could say its our moral duty to help these people but thats definitely debatable
