Why you can't compete with Chinese labor
This young boy is less than 10 years old and his dad taught him how to play with a freaking huge real-size dozer.
He doesn't work in a factory, his dad taught him this trick for fun. Your dads probably did the same thing, but without a huge dozer. They taught you baseball, this dad decided to teach dozer driving.
Compare with the western kids :
The little boy handles that thing like he's been operating it for longer than he's been alive
I am jealous and I think that we have completely made our kids inept by dis-allowing most physical and "work" opportunities to them. They are overprotected and become completely lazy. I used to ride my motorcycle out to the fields at 12 yrs old and work till dark at farms doing every kind of stuff possible including driving all rigs. Learned a ton and gave me ethic for life. It was fun, but hard work. I fear for our youth now.
Child labor is no joke and of course he would be better off getting some schooling before entering the work force and having fun as a kid.
