Video of why we can't compete with the Chinese:
Mod. I forgot how to post a web address. Help.
That’s rather amazing. Of course if this was in the US, OSHA would cite the employer for no hard hat....
They don’t have “managers” that stifle innovation.
When I was in Mexico I saw a kid about the same age running a crane as they built a new high rise hotel.
It’s not just the Chinese. It’s pretty common outside of the US.
If American corporations get American workers to live like Chinese workers under a Chinese government, then we can compete. Plus they would be expected to vote for their choice of Republican candidate.
well at least it gets the kid out of jail (as so many public schools seem to be these days)
the point is, he’s competent and, from what we can see, has a good work ethic.
often, today’s public schools provide training for neither of these important employment characteristics.
Yeah but can he play in sandbox with a Tonka Toy.
Do I need a sarc tag?

That company manufactures engines, BTW.
I like how nice and professionally dressed he is, too.
LOL, not really but just in case. Some lately can’t seem to tell anymore.
That kid is an expert driver it seems. When my hubby was in elementary school, he and all his family chopped cotton and harvested peanuts for a living.
Likewise, plenty of children learned to drive tractors, and help out on the family farm. I used to sit in grandpa’s lap and drive the old sedan. I also used to help milk the cows, gather eggs etc.
When I was thirteen, I had a full time summerjob babysitting 3 kids all in diapers or toddler pants. When I was 14, I went to work as a waitress and wanted to work more than the law would allow.
My kids never had these experiences, but I am glad that I did. It was a lot more satisfying and productive than watching tv and playing video games.
Not that I am advocating child labor or anything. Just thinking about old times,and how that helped develop a work ethic instead of a dependency mentality.
That is a very good point. We are reaping what we are sowing. Instead of treating them like babies, teach them to be responsible and mature.
I've always thought that parenting skills were a lost art in most of our population.
Yep, sometime there’s unintended consequences.
No doubt for some. I think there are others that just thought child labor was not a good thing for kids.
I was talking more along the lines of how the liberals, democrats, Rinos, commies, Marxist have ruin this country.

Yes, I understand your point, and no argument from me on that. Just that the cleverly disguised their intents especially in the early days as being for the people and the children.
Many people fell for it hook line and sinker, because they didn’t understand the threat that it posed, and just thought the propositions sounded like they would be good to help some one.
Somewhere along the line, people forgot why the Federal Government was supposed to have a limited role. The last truly constitutional era President was likely Grover Cleaver. After that, it all went downhill faster.
She would be even more lethal, if she had a brain.
Of course we can, but our government refuses to allow it.
We should ban all goods made by slave labor. That would keep Chinese junk out of our country. Then we should put a 100 percent tariff on Chinese goods. Then we should make a deal with the ROC.
China is an enemy nation, out to destroy us. We need to take whatever measures are needed to keep them from infesting our country, economy, and society.
