American Vs. Chinese Workers age requirements



With the liberals constantly setting limitations to the work in which children(I'm more so speaking of early teens) can do these days it is no wonder why our children are falling behind. They have no work ethic.

The chinese have their children working early on in their lives. I don't see anything wrong with that. If the children want to work or have to work to support their familie's let them work.

Possibly this is their version of no child left behind. At least they weren't aborted. Right?

We are stuck with a bunch of obese, drug addicted, self entitled shite heads for the most part thanks to the liberal government.

We really should put our low socio-economic children to work in factories if we want to be competitive.

First, lower the minimum age.
Second, stop making school compulsory.
Third, eliminate the minimum wage, or at least lower it significantly.

Pricing floors never work. Liberals will say it is taking advantage and exploiting say 13 year olds by paying them less than an older worker to make a product or work on a farm, ect.

I don't see anything wrong with this. It is better to have them working part time for low wages than out on the streets with no cash stealing and selling drugs.

Not to mention we need to get them from underneath their mothers skirts. Kids are mostly pussies these days.

Farm kids are an exception, right? Didn't the government try to challenge this with labor laws recently?

Will update with link if I can find it.

Yes they did. But I'm pretty sure they tried to set an age limit on the age in which a child can work on their own families farm.

SC's minimum age is 16. A freshman in high school can't even milk a cow without the government getting involved.

The problem (among many others) is that, for the most part, work is requiring more and more technical or creative skills.

What good is sending a low income 10 or even a 14 year old to Wal-Mart after his parents "allow" him to drop out of school?

I babysat starting at 12.

My cousin mowed our lawn every week starting at 10 or 12.

My fiance's little brother mowed lawns before he was old enough to work at a business.

If my papaw was still alive he'd probably pay a kid to gather the pecans from his tree and pick the pears, corn and peas for him.

Why does a kid have to work at Wal Mart to be working?

Nobody is talking about dropping out of school. They can drop them off at Wal-Mart after school. Wal-Mart doesn't close until 10 and many stay open all night. Many loiter in front of the Wal-Mart after school anyways. Might as well give them some stickers to hand out.

re: American Vs. Chinese Workers age requirements


I thought I saw you or somebody propose allowing them to drop out earlier to enter the workforce. My mistake if I was incorrect.

If it's merely a debate about allowing part time employment, no argument here. But they've had minimum ages even when I was a teen and there are ways around that.

It was Asgard that made the proposal I disagreed with, not you.

They don't HAVE to but they should be allowed to if they wanted to. Wal-Mart is just an example. And quite frankly I find it an easier job than mowing lawns, land scaping, jobs most normal kids do.

However in lower socio-economic environments children's only employment options may be at a Wal-Mart, Dollar General, ect.

Think about children in the Inner City that live in project buildings 40 stories tall. Don't think they can mow lawns. They could possibly baby sit however. Just an example.

Yeah you all are right. Let's follow the communist model and institute Universal health Care too. Then let's muzzle the press and free speech. You all are crazy except you are right about kids these days.

Nobody is following the communist model. Communist model would be forcing them into work. I simply believe they should have the option which is capitalist, not communist.

Are you just going to shite on this thread or actually offer a solution to kids with no work ethic?

I agree that most kids have no work ethic and sit with their thumbs texting all day but you can't say no schooling or whatever. Lowering the work age just opens kids up for exploitation. Interesting questions but following China just seems wrong.

Yeah but kids are expecting to handed stuff on a platter because we parents started them that way.

I don't know if anyone is seriously advocating that they drop out of school. I'm not. But I think people who never work wind up sucking at life later too.

To the point about inner city kids not being able to mow lawns - there's still plenty to do, IMO. Babysit, as mentioned. Wash cars. Not that this is legal technically, but lots of mom and pops would pay to have their trash taken out, patios swept, etc.

And parents can put their kids to work at home. All kids should have chores.

Ok so marketing them iphone's with games like crazy birds and all that shite isn't exploiting kids for corporate profit?

You can call anything involving kids "exploitation". As long as they are compensated financially it can hardly been seen as exploitation.

Also it is the parents fault almost as much as it is the governments.

Exactly

For the most part my friends who worked in high school ended up being the most successful as of now. I am 24 and am close to both ends of the spectrum. My friends who never worked in high school, and a few who never worked in college, are having the most difficult time putting down the xbox controller, turning off FIFA, and finding/working a real job.

If parents want to hand their children money until they are twenty three without having them develop a work ethic then that will be their problem when that kid is living on their couch until they are thirty.

The one's who start early and balance their work and education will be the one's who will have developed marketable skills and most importantly a work ethic.

This is why India and China are dominating employment in the States as of recently. They have an ethic and begin at an early age. They do not have a nipple to suck on until they are 22.
