9. About the kids.
I'll admit that my defense of sweatshops goes over badly with, how to put it, everyone. I just use it to make a jarring point about the benefits of globalization. People are being provided with jobs and opportunities they otherwise wouldn't have and everyone benefits from lower prices and higher trade.

Also, in defense of myself: I'm now being labeled a troll and freeper (I have no idea what that is, but I assume it is bad) on some other threads. Supporting globalization does not equate someone to a member of the extreme right wing. Bill Clinton was an important supporter of globalization and free trade, it is one of the things I most admire him for.
