Child labor in the US

Things haven't changed much since I saw the movie the United Farm Workers Union produced about agricultural workers in California. You can order this movie to show in your community, school or union. The politicians of the two Wall Street Parties in Congress will not stop this. A generalized mass direct action political movement of workers and our communities with the conscious aim of driving back the capitalist agenda and transforming agricultural production from a private, profit driven system of producing food to a collective one managed and controlled by workers and consumers is what will stop it. A democratic socialist plan of production is what will stop it. It is utopian to assume pacts signed by US multinationals to protect Bangladeshi or Cambodian children working in their factories will do so when these conditions exist in the US. These agreements are simply propaganda, window dressing.
