I can't imagine what it would be like to work for a 9 year old in a sweatshop. This really had to of been a eye opening experience for this reporter. You think of a kid this young as going to school or playing not spending their life toiling away in a building with no windows. Considering the factory tragedies of the past no windows would worry me. The pay isn't much for the sacrifice of her childhood either but her family needs the money.Few people learn what working for a nine-year-old feels like. (Most would consider the idea of working for a nine-year-old like the butt of a good SNL sketch.) But a Toronto Star reporter went to Bangladesh, was embedded in a sweatshop and learned nine-year-olds make the most forgiving bosses in the most unforgiving conditions.

Makes me take a look at my cloths and wonder if a child made them. I don't like the idea of a child doing that and wish they wouldn't hire them that young. I wish businesses wouldn't buy their products if they are going to hire children, which I think some have stopped but not all obviously. Should have to label cloths that are made by child labor so we would know not to buy them. I'm glad we have laws against this here in the US as I'm sure a lot of countries do and building codes.
