What? Just because something is common doesn't make it correct, or right. That is hands down one of the most common and most ignorant sayings I come across, and it is blatantly wrong.
Using your logic on the mistreatment of Aboriginal Australians: "Let's watch all the uneducated Human rights trolls have fun with this, no realising that this sort of thing is common in Australia. Forget what is acceptable in the European world, it means nothing in Australia."
Don't talk to me about the mistreatment of Aboriginals in my own country. They weren't treated any worse than those across the globe. And when the world changed, so did Australia, so your argument is completely invalid.

What is common practice in other cultures is NOT accepted in others. Other wise, we would be marrying under aged, cannibalism would be popular, and rape would be accepted..along with many other things. China may not care about what happens with child labor, but the majority of the world does.
It is funny that you are quick to call others uneducated and trolls. Maybe you should read your statement before you post next time.
What you just said doesn't make a lot of sense to me, maybe it's my lack of education on understanding people who seem to agree with my opinon, yet make out that they don't, only to look like they're contradicting themselves, which makes you look especially silly calling someone uneducated.
What China does, and what their laws allow is nothing to do with us. Like I said, forget western culture, because the opinions we share, because of the freedom and rights we have, don't allow people to look at a situation in full, only one part of it. Do I agree with child labour? Absolutely not.
But I also believe that Foxconn looks after their staff better than a lot of people seem to think they do. I had to do work experience for my schooling. I was forced to do it, and I didn't get paid. At least these students get paid some money, and the ones who didn't want to do it, are now back at school, while the ones who do want to work there, are working.
