CHINA ACCUSED OF USING CHILD LABOR TO MAKE OLYMPICS MERCHANDISE

An alliance of trade unions has charged that some of the official merchandise for the 2008 Olympics in China has been made by Chinese children as young as 12 years old. The report by the Playfair Alliance also highlights alleged labor-rights violations at four factories including forced overtime, poor health and safety conditions, and workers being instructed to lie about wages and conditions to outside inspectors.

This is what capitalism brings. The only things within capitalistic nations that keep them from reverting to open slavery are the egalitarians living within those nations.
