    When I worked for my parents yes, when I worked in the "real world" I wasn't paid much, and way less than I was worth. But I was happy with it so I don't think it was abuse.

    I've never worked in a candy shop.

    I think adults can define when they are being abused. I think outsiders telling someone they are being abused is kind of annoying.

    Nice, so as long as they don’t know better, it can’t be abuse.

    Not the point at all. If I'm a garbage man and I love my job and am happy with the pay I'm getting and am fully informed, someone saying that I'm being abused by my employer because I'm not getting hazardous pay for being around garbage or that I have to have a robot arm and a helper to do my job. I think it's okay for people to like their job fully informed and people from the outside are not automatically right when they say someone else needs to be protected.

    By not really doing that but really just making it illegal for people to call the police to report someone as illegally here based solely on their skin color or speaking primarily or entirely Spanish.

    You could literally read the article...
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.
    _____

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    Ok. I'll give you that as long as you agree that minorities (or the woke white folk) labeling white trump supporters as racists or nazis have the same ramifications. Damn, you'd think I'd just went and harassed a bunch of minorities 2 days ago in Minneapolis

    Yep and if they have no recourse they will continue to get abused. If a child labor law stops a bunch of sweet shops and also stop a kid or two from working in a non abusive situation I’m ok with that

    No one is happy just to be a garbage man (well no sane person) and none of those things exist. A garage man might be happy they have a job to pay bills, feed their family.... That doesn’t mean they are abused but it does mean they dependent on that job. people will endure a lot to survive sometimes they get abused to provide for themselves. Often abusive relationships hinge on dependence. When they do saying they should just leave or tell the abuser to stop isn’t enough. Outside help is important

    People are happy to be garbage men, but that wasn't the point. Outside people should not be telling people what their situation is.
