Remember that this practice is illegal in Britain. In the US child labor is traditional, along with slavery, tax evasion, and gun dealing. It doesn’t seem that bad until you think for a moment what it means for the rest of us to exploit the most vulnerable children for cheap vegetables. For me it makes the beltway hot air about “free markets” sound pretty stupid. Its David Copperfield with modern appliances. #USKleptocracy
