with proper protection laws, there’s no real reason children couldn’t work

with proper protection laws, there’s no real reason children couldn’t work. But a majority of the USA is in the top 1% of the world (over $34,000 / yr) and children don’t need to work generally. But in more impoverished countries, it’s just a simple necessity.
Good-intentioned “let’s break up the shirt factories” don’t understand. Those countries may need better “safe environment” laws, working conditions, whatever. But busting up the factories leaves families starving. Nice intention but disrespectful to the local economy: BIG WHITE FEET stomping all over the world, in the name of GOOD… _sigh_. Real change is usually more subtle than that, bit by annoying bit.
