Apples child labour policy is nothing to be ashamed of

today i read a story about Apple admitting that they use child labor to make their expensive iphones as though it is something to be ashamed off. Child labour isnt a bad thing, children have been doing paper rounds for ages so why isnt that frowned upon? the Americans have 'bring your child to work day' so why do they have to be racist when a Chinamen brings his kid and asks it to help out? Fish Finger magnate Captain Birdseye runs his operation using a boatload of young boys and no one complains.

Acceptable - Captain Birdseye

At least apple teaches children to make expensive things to give them a good start in life. when they leave apple and get their own factory they'll know how to build cheap ipods and not just dip kippers in breadcrumbs. i wish someone told me how to make an MP3 player as a child and i would be a rich man now. Even hollywood portrays kids in the workspace as a good thing with films such as Big, Oliver, Shindlers List, Shortround from Indiana Jones and Taxi Driver portraying children as capable employees. If they dont like it they can always jump off a building.

Acceptable - Child chauffeurs
