And all due respects to you to, lets me demonstrate the connection between Shrinking poverty and Growing economies.
Bangladesh has made impressive gains in reducing child malnutrition rates during the last 15 years. According to Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) data, the rate of stunting for children in the age group of 6-71 months which was 69 per cent in 1985/86 dropped to 49 per cent in 2000. The proportion of underweight children has gone down from 72 per cent in 1985/86 to 51 per cent in 2000. The Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) data available for the second half of the nineties show a faster decline. The rate of stunting for the age group of 0-59 months has gone down from 55 to 45 per cent during 1996-2000 and, that for underweight, from 56 to 48 per cent during the same period
And what caused this improvement, Charitable work, Population control and Foreign Investment.
Bangladesh nationalized most industries in 1972 and set up nine corporations to oversee them. In the mid-1980s, the Bangladesh government began relaxing its policy toward foreign investment and announced a program granting tax holidays to new foreign investors.
I maitain, i hate child labor, that is an issue for the Bangladesh Government.
And slightly off topic, Our World is overpopulated, over polluted, intollerant and this is all fuelled by the economic System, The catastrophic consequences Global Warming and other issues are now barrelling down on us like an out of control locomotive.

They can always quit, are they slaves or workers?
Because if you say they can quit, that means they have the job because they want/need the job, and if that company didn't exist, they would starve.
