Response this article：
I am a mother of two young children and I could never imagine sending them my girls to work at their age. However, that just shows how privileged we are as Americans. My views have not necessarily changed after watching this video because I knew the harsh realities of trading with poor countries in order to receive cheaply produced goods and have a strong stance on buying American products whenever possible. Ones knee jerk reaction would be to say stop trading with any countries that exploits children in order to produce goods. However, the video implies that there is a direct correlation of when a country can have increased GDP, for instance through international trade, their child labor will decrease. Is that benefit worth child labor? I would say we are advanced enough as a society to have higher expectations of the treatment of children before trading with a country that exploits kids. Like the video implied there are other ways to donate and help impoverished children other than sending them to work so that us Americans have cheaply made products.
