Con

First of all, unless we are disabled, we should all work for ourselves.

Second of all, children are the future, and if you hurt the kid, you are ruining the childs hopes and dreams.
Ironhead56

Pro

Children can work for small amounts, even less then minimum wage if nessasary.
plus they can fit in small places inacessible to fully grown men and women like chambers in plants and bridges and under equipment in factories.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

Its not fair that children work in dangerous places and get paid such a little amount. Adults should be working. Children should be going to school.
Ironhead56

Pro

children are at work in China and India and their economies have soared in the last few decades, coming to match most Western powers. Obviously the countries would rather have workers and besides, they can go to school in the morning or evening, before or after work. another point, they can help earn money to support their families. these places where thay get paid below minimum wage the food probaly wont be expensive so that people can afford to feed large familes on two or three incomes.
Debate Round No. 2

Con

Children who work in dangerous places get ripped off because they make less a dollar a day, and often are beaten and some are even killed. Plus, we people can work for themselves.
Ironhead56

Pro

Child labor should continue because 1) The money they make can help sustain their family. $1 a day is alot in most of the world and can pay for rice or beans to feed a family. 2) They are rarley killed. plus are adults not also killed while working? and finally 3) Many thousands if not millions of children are starving in Africa and Asia because their parents are either dead or disabled and work anyway. How else will their 5 brothers and sisters get enough food and ecspcially water to survive?

wow! in my opinion, they should be paid more, and if it is an OPTION to work, then let them work. Sorry IF, I thought I'd vote for you, but I must vote Pro this time, since he provided a better arguement. Better luck next time.

This contradicts your resolution. Because children are not disabled.

By the way, I support the disabled working for themselves :D.
