Quote:I think speed IS the main reason here. "Don't bother KILLING the animals! They'll die anyway!"
I'm going to assume it doesn't take that long to kill the animals. How long does it take to snap a neck? Not long at all. And again, the article doesn't give any reason at all, and even argues against the "speed" answer since it mentions that they sometimes kill the animals anyway. I'm sure at the least, these animals would be making noises, so why not silence them?
Quote:And as far as forcing the people to work, no one's forcing them to live in their homes or eat, either.
What does that even mean?
Quote:An' Nixon was just doing what Republicans never wanted to STOP doing. Use child labor, so they don't have to pay as much as they do for adults!
Again, in these developing countries, where things like public education does not exist for the mainstream, what's wrong with having a 13 year old work in a factory? It's all about their available options. Would you rather have a child work in a factory making 20 cents an hour, or working in a rice patty for 10 cents an hour? Or just go into slavery or prostitution for even worse conditions (and a much lower life expectancy)?
Each person has to make the best option for them at the current time. It's great if someone thinks that children in third world countries working full time jobs is a horrible thing, but what's the alternative? For these children, there isn't one. If we refused to do business with China and took those factories out of there, the situations of those workers would be much worse.
