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. :cool:

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.

:kobe are you having a laugh? Kids are supposed to be kids, and enjoy playing with toys. Work is done by adults.

Re: Why you can't compete with Chinese labor
I learned a work ethic by doing things around the house and working hard at school. Like most children do.

Not working in a factory.

They are mutants or from somewhere else than Earth :(

Their peasants build helicopters, planes, submarines or even robots while being illiterate :cheer

Homemade plane :

Homemade gyrocopter :

Homemade submarine :

Homemade robots :

Mr. Wu, the robot creator is quite famous, you have 7 separate videos featuring his robots on youtube and many documentaries about him. And he does it all out of junk, with no math involved or formal education and no budget. He must teach in MIT, hire him !!!

Why did they all do that ?

They wanted to do something which was impossible for them and tried their best. They had a dream and a goal . A thing that's rarer and rarer in western countries. What do you have to achieve and what did you achieve alone ?

Re: Why you can't compete with Chinese labor
Welcome, modern Western society!

This is the "society of success" you always wanted to achieve. More. Faster. Cheaper.

Not only have the work horses now you up your balls, Western society. With it they have you at your pride. You and your claims to be more hard working thus deserving your superior wealth. Wealth extracted from other countries resources.

But the best part. This wealth and additional determination gains us human beings absolute nothing. We don't maximize our happiness, we maximize our self torture. And pay with our future resources.

Re: Why you can't compete with Chinese labor
I actually agree with your main point. You're not saying that today's youth should be doing hard factory labor, just that they would probably benefit from being allowed to obtain work at an early age. Some of the most impressionable moments of my youth were working with my Uncle during the Summer and assisting him with painting, wallpaper hanging, molding installation, etc. Not only did I learn a trade that I could really fall back on, but I learned accountability, the importance of taking pride in your work, and THE VALUE OF A DOLLAR. Today's youth, and the majority of yesterday's youth for that matter, pretty much had things handed to them until they were 18 years old. When they finally move away from Mommy and Daddy for the first time and are responsible for their own income, food, clothes, and therefore their own spending, they don't know what to do with themselves. My parents never bought me a car. I purchased it myself after I got back from deployment. My parents never bought me a cellphone. I purchased one when I was 16 years old via my own money.

In short, I think that the working age limit for American children should be lowered by a year or two. You attend high school? You can definitely do physical work. You're a year or two away from high school? You can bag groceries and pick up shopping carts. What could it really hurt? I think that as the youth gets sheltered more and more, it has lead us to a snowball effect of sorts via basic incompetence, personal debt, and reliance on others. I, for one, never felt so accomplished than I did after a hard day's work in my youth.

Re: Why you can't compete with Chinese labor
you shouldnt be doing physical work at that age, thats the whole point

it stunts growth and could deform you physically. there is a reason they passed laws against youth doing hard labour in VICTORIAN TIMES

Why should children work?

Isn't that why you are a child?

I'd much rather have a kid have fun, focus on sports or other extra curricular stuff than work when he doesn't have to. A child will have a much successful future if he picks up hobbies and focuses on school work then going to a job not needed most of the day. Almost all of the kids I know with jobs are the ones who do fuck all with school and use money to go buy whatever new thing is out, then save it or something. An allowance and house work is what teaches a child the value of money, not going to go bag groceries for hours.

You seriously need to learn to read.

No one is saying 8 year olds should be tweaking auto parts or sewing clothes in some hot factory for 12 hours a day. I merely said that if you are in high school, you can do physical labor. That is a fact seeing that a 14 year old can acquire work through labor in the United States via the Fair Labor Standards Act. The hours and types of jobs that a 14 year old can work are limited, however. That is why I said a person a few years away from high school can bag groceries and walk around collecting buggies in a grocery store parking lot, not work in a fucking mine breathing in coal and looking for gold.

And don't bring that broscience of "hard work" stunts growth. That's bullshit. There are middle schools and high schools with weight rooms and athletic programs that make some low level colleges blush. There are countries with lax youth labor laws that put out world class athletes who were running marathons at 10 years old like Kenya. Then there is the United States with a huge percentage of the population that is obese and morbidly obese because they have the "stresses" of the "Freshman 15" and other stupid excuses as to why they could not cut their own fucking grass.
