    on this map, Venezuela ranks right down there with Pakistan, yet Justina has never mentioned that level of misery there. I know people from South Asia, and yes, child labour in those countries is horrific.
    Thank you for posting. Offshoring misery and then pretending that everything we use is made by robots is immoral.

      this is a good question

      I am always looking for more info on child labor South of our Border

      We still have child labor here in the USA, so wouldn't be surprised to find it anywhere.

      The map in the video is too small to see if the shades of red are lighter in Venezuela.

      From what I've heard, people are still very poor there, but conditions are improving now that they have a government that cares about poor people.

      I will try to find more current info.

      I will be glad when this month is over.
      Child Labor is the saddest problem of all, to me. Don't know which is worse, to have to write about it or to read what I write.

      It would be less depressing for me if I felt like there was more that I could.
