This is absolutely scandalous. What kind of society of savages can allow things like this? What's wrong with these people? Nobody is reacting and try to fix this problem.

Surely they can just get a fishing net or boat? Problem solved.

The root of the problem is the fact that Joshua has SIX children. With such huge overpopulation childrens lives worth shit. But nobody is to blame but themselves.

Just a tip, if you can't afford to feed 6 kids, DON'T have them!
its actually a woman which forces men to to do it this animal breeds and forces someone else to take care of it its called opportunism and abuse man has this pride of I am smart and great and sacrificing themselves for what for an animal which uses vagina as a as an excuse from being a parent

I don't wear jewelry. Kids shouldn't be used to mine anything. Next time you put that ring on? Or chain? Think about where that gold could have come from? Kids dying for capitalism! Zeitgeist the World!

Real UFO Videos lol, I dare you to tell them to stop. The father and his kids would tell you to go fuck yourselves. I know it's hard for a pampered little commie like you to understand but this is the only way to sustain themselves. everything has unintended consequences, so do people a favour and mind your own fucking business

+kansasthunderman1 I'm talking about the jewelry. Not the computer hardware? Go ahead. Wear your junk jewelry? I don't care. I care about child workers who get exploited everyday? And how blind people who wear the crap around their necks, and on their fingers? Don't give a damn about nothing but themselves!

+Kris Samsel Most gold is used in electronics and it is recycled from discarded ICs and there's no need for "virgin" gold.

+kansasthunderman1 You're missing the point.

+Kris Samsel Gold can be obtained from various sources and only a small amount of it is from the mining  shown in this video.

The title "The Philippines' child miners risking their lives for gold" is misleading. It should read "The Philippines' boys and their fathers risking their lives for gold". All the miners are males.

+TYRES1987 feminists are crazy militants don,t listen to them!

+guleet Why not, where are all the feminists screaming about the lack of female representation in gold mining?

+jeff milligan so you want females to do this work , have you no shame?
jeff milligan (3 years ago)
+TYRES1987 I hear ya! The Boko Haram killed hundreds upon hundreds of boys, all erased by the media. It's a golden rule of journalism it seems, if the victims are male, erase their gender.

Mat Broomfield (3 years ago)
Americans - THIS is an example of libertarianism and capitalism taken to its ultimate extreme. No social care, no protections, just the wealthy preying upon the poor, and the poor sacrificing their lives to feed their families. How are market forces protecting these workers? Where are the unions? Where are the poor joining together to ensure fair treatment for all?

+Mat Broomfield So what?
Mat Broomfield (2 years ago)
+Atlas Shrugged. Not now, but when it was the USSR, the mass poverty caused by its overspending on the military during the cold war was one of the things that lead to the break up and the end of the cold war.
MAGA anti-globalist (2 years ago)
+Mat Broomfield Russia spends far less on its military (less than 10%) than the US in relation to GDP...... Not sure you know what you're talking about..
Mat Broomfield (2 years ago)
+George Calm Russia, country that spent 50% of its budget on the military and fell apart as a result? That nation you mean?Nobody is asking for a free lunch, simply that the wealth is distributed more evenly. For all of your insulting rhetoric, you must be wilfully ignoring the entirety of Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia to say something so silly. The fact is, there's enough wealth to go around, but the top 10% exploit the rest of the nation. Even your own nation managed to stop children having to work in life threatening jobs. Of course, now that you have a crazed mongrel in charge whose more interested in posturing, bigotry and hiding his wealth elsewhere, things have taken a turn for the worse and child poverty is on the rise again.I suggest you go ponder a little more deeply before making such silly posts again.
George Calm (2 years ago)
These is no free lunch ever in the universe. Where you would take the money to implement such social system. Im frome Russia (was born in USSR) so dont tell me your fucking deluded tales you poor idiot.
