It's the "tough luck" attitude reguarding people who get diseases beyond their control. I say let's help these people and not say "sucks to be you".

You got any evidence it hasn't got even worse?
The question is, do you? You are the one jumping up and down, screaming bloody murder. Why don't you find the evidence. If it is as bad as you think, surely you can find some information concerning wages in the "sweatshops", that is a little more recent.

It took me about 10 seconds to find those cases. There were plenty more. 6 cents an hour isn't out of the ordinary. And you can bet for every case that makes the news there are far, far more that no-one ever hears about.

Well then you should have plenty more information to share with everybody. Perhaps you could try and find some with a lower wage. And you can bet that for every case that makes the news about a bad company, there are far, far more good companies that no one ever hears about.

You've convinced me. 17 year olds collapsing from toxic poisoning and getting paid 6 cents an hour for the privilege? They've got it made.

Boo hoo, bad condidtions. There are plenty of jobs spanning the globe that are dangerous, what is your point? Yes the conditions suck. Perhaps you would like to take a look at the working conditions of Vietnam as a whole? I'll say this, there is no OSHA.

And again, you still harp on this "6 cents an hour". It is completely irrelevant when converted to American dollars. I've proven that with data. I am sorry you are unable to comprehend that they are being paid a fair wage, which is very comparable with other wages in the country. You cannot just strictly convert their wage into American currency. You really seem unable to grasp this concept. Why?

"My statement was in reference to capable people who have the ability to put
themselves whereever they want to be, if only they put forth the effort. When it
comes to a physical or mental handicap that the person cannot help, that is a
different story."


Liberals agree with you.

I'm taking a Sociology class this semester, where we're going to learn, among other things, about how people's environment and circumstances affect the decisions they make. I look forward to sharing the insights I'm sure to learn in that class.
