Hey Kevin. I work in a child labor factory, but don't tell anyone
Hi Stacy! I was just wondering, where do you work?
Well it was the first job that came to me. It pays super good and what do I care if children have to do all the work?
Stacy why would you do that?! There's so many other jobs with better morals that aren't illegal
It's fine! I make money and that's all that matters.
I won't be friends with you until you realize that this is wrong!
It's an awful thing to support! You shouldn't be near a place like that!?
There are over 246 million kids between the ages of 5 and 15 around the world that are labouring every day for long hours, without having the chance to go to school or do anything else. There's obviously an issue here, which needs to be stopped. Stacy is a manager at a company that supports child labor. Kevin doesn't like this.
Hmmmm... maybe I should think about what Kevin said. I really value his friendship
Here, It seems that Stacy doesn't understand the difference between a normal job and a child who has to work a certain amount of hours to go home and see their families. Kevin wants to help his friend understand what she is contributing to.
Hey Kev! I've decided to quit my job and work somewhere else!
That's awesome! It's good to be friends again.
After arguing, Kevin gives Stacy an ultimatum to either be his friend and quit her job, or keep her job and break their bond. Kevin just wants her to think about her decision of forcing children to work under harsh conditions and not getting education and sometimes being held against their will.
Guess what?! You're looking at the newest Target employee!
Stace I'm so proud of you!
After she does some research, she finds that most children that start working are around 10 years old, only 1 out of 5 children are paid for their work, and agriculture accounts for 60% of child labor. Stacy's blown away at what she's been participating in and had no idea that these things were happening at her workplace. She decides to tell Kevin about her big decision that she has made.
The next Stacy quits her job at the factory and goes to tell Kevin. He's so happy about her final decision and can't wait for her to start her future in a safe,healthy, and ethically right workplace.
After some job searching, Stacy finds a great job at Target. Throughout this experience Kevin has taught Stacy so many things about child labor factories and how they are wrongfully treated. He feels good that he could educate her on the treatment the children get at those factories and that he could spread the word and help others realize that this is very wrong and we shouldn't let it be happening.
