    “Legalize Child Labor”? Why not reinstitute a seven day work week while we’re at it?

    Unironically wanting to reverse the last 150 years of civilization.

  3. wolfiewu says

    Next up for American libertarians and conservatives, unironically asking to reinstate slavery because something something teaching the value of labor and it’s my money I can do what I want with it.

    There are definitely sweatshops in the USA and a single google search would have saved him from making this shitty, uninformed tweet.

    From the [Garment Worker Center](https://garmentworkercenter.org/all-american-sweatshops/): “Yes, the conditions are better here, but the notion that we still don’t have sweatshops in the United States is simply not true,” says Marissa Nuncio, director of the Garment Worker Center. “It’s important that people are aware of the conditions that exist like poor ventilation and just terrible safety violations.”

    Hell, there are reports of immigrant sweatshops in NYC that are under very similar conditions that the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory was in before the fire. No ventilation and people are locked in.

    Holy shit how did i make so many typos in this one single comment

    Those kids are brown, therefore they do not count /s

  7. DaemonDrayke says

    What the fuck? How is the point made moot? Somebody suggested having kids work in lieu of public education, someone points out a country where that is their daily reality, and the other person just says Nyeaaaaah! But that’s not in America though! Even though I want it to happen in America so that means I’m right for some reason!

    The “Don’t Tread on Me” party seems to be very pro treading.

  9. NuclearOops says

    There are sweatshops in the U.S. even if they’re illegal they do exist. And a “moot” point is just one that needs to he revisited later, not nullified.

    Don’t most high schools have a partnership with career centers? I went to a high school in a smaller town in South Carolina, and even they utilized an off site career center where you could get certifications/licenses for cosmetology, electrical, HVAC, carpentry, etc.

    Libertarians always look at health and safety regulations that were passed in response to tragedy and say “Why do we need this law again? The thing it protects against has never affected me personally, so obviously it’s not important.”

  13. AssassinOfFate says

    I never understood the libertarian line of thinking. Seems like only selfish weirdos are libertarian.

    Grown ass adults can’t get paid a decent wage

    People think teenagers deserve to be shit on for $7 an hour

    But this fucking idiot thinks children won’t get taken advantage of… 🤣😂🤣

  15. ZebraFit2270 says

    People that scream “Venezuela” and call everyone “commies” want kiddie labor camps as long as it’s privatized.

  16. Frieda-_-Claxton says

    Libertarians come up with all of these ideas to make everyone’s lives worse then wonder why they don’t win elections.

  17. Kagahami says

    Also even in Texan history books (that is, all education leading up to high school), we learn about the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire, which by all descriptions was a sweatshop.

  18. SammyC25268 says

    Libertarian Party NH might want to read about Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 Child Labor Provisions.

    >The federal child labor provisions, authorized by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) of 1938, also known as the child labor laws, were enacted to ensure that when young people work, the work is safe and does not jeopardize their health, well-being or educational opportunities.

    Do sweatshops exist in America? No. Will the fat cats running American businesses happily exploit the ones that do? Yes. But one shouldn’t expect a good faith argument from a 1% loving libertarian.

    I mean they will learn things. Not necessarily things that will help them in life though

    The two main parties are both cringe, we should vote some other ones!!

    Intermittent reminder that Murray Rothbard, one of the progenitors or Anarcho-Capitalism supported ‘[child markets](https://mises.org/library/children-and-rights)’.

    Libertarians are so fucking dumb bro

  24. B_McD314 says

    Libertarians are the most confused people regarding how society works. They want government to have no role in corporations having unfettered control over us. I enjoy liberty, and I think having clean air, clean water, and the right to not be exploited are the ultimate freedoms that libertarians seem to be shooting themselves in the foot over.

    >Are there sweat shops in the US?

    Well. Not *yet*.
