It's already 10:30 and I have been working in fields all day. I still have so much more work to do before my boss comes back.
Same here. I am so tired I only got one break today. We should just run back home.
What if we get caught?
It probably won't even matter... we won't get paid anyway..
I'm surprised we actually made it back.
yeah same, now we just have to worry about what our boss is gonna say to us in the morning
I have been waiting all night and morning for these boys to bring me my crops!
Child Labor is when children are forced to work long hours in dangerous conditions. Children often get tired and not want to work so the job isn't usually done right.
The next morning..
2)You make us work so much we just needed a break.
The children are tired of working and they need to rest. They have to work in any condition and they get little or no pay at all.
3)We are always work for 11-13 hours a day and it's exsusting we needed a break
1)Where have you been and where are my crops!
The bosses can be very strict and mean. They are worried about getting the work done, not about the children's health or how they feel.
No exscuses. Go back to the field and pick corn until 8:30
Some bosses are very impatient and don't care about the children. They just think of them as workers. They are extremely hard on them and they always expect the best from them.
When the children try to nogotiate with the boss.....
They get yelled at and they get in more trouble. Child labor is a terrrible thing and people need to understand that they are too hard on the kids. Children should not be forced to work at such a young age. They should go to school an get a good education rather than working for many hours a day.
