    Parents still let their children work, but even adults who work in coal mines are given health warnings. If a person wants to make a deal with someone to work off a debt, what difference is it to you? It's done all the time.

    Or like calling employees contractors to pay them less and monopolize the market?

    Bad employment? Are you telling people what kind employment is acceptable? Why do you hate freedom?

    Yes because having the choice of Uber, Lyft, or a taxi is a monopolization of only taxis.

    Says the people telling people they can't work by making it illegal.

    You're batting .000

    At least someone has the balls to speak out in favor of indentured servitude.

    Taxis? But they cost more, just like American steel.

    I see you're still not making an analogy of freelancing and indentured servitude.

    You’ve still not told me why it’s ok to make some work illegal. Do you not know?

    Kudos for still getting up off the floor after each post.

    Yes, we must ensure the prosperous lifestyle of the Taxi driver is protected. Their livable wage needs protected.

    There’s no comparison other than the concept of the legality of certain types of work.

    So having to pay more isn’t a monopoly?

    I didn’t kick 7yos out of coal jobs.
    I didn’t ban indentured servitude, or prostitution.

    It must be nice to not be bound by things you just said.
    So you admit there’s no Chinese steel monopoly, even if they gave it away for free?

    No, leftists wouldn't kick 7 year olds out of coal jobs.

    They'd want to kick grown men and women attempting to make some extra cash out of easy jobs they can do on their own schedule, as a personal choice.

    I never said there was a Chinese steel monopoly. Thankfully Trump put an end to Democrats selling our jobs out to the Chinese.

    You may want to read the headline again.

    Or are you suggesting more 7 year olds in coal mines?

    So it’s ok to make a business pay more? But only for steel, not labor?

    Are you asking if it's good to make a foreign business less attractive than a domestic one?

    If you'd ask that question, you're probably a Democrat.

    Yet you still post.

    This rapid fire thing isn't going to work, you know.

    I'm a full auto kinda guy.

    Apparently, you don't actually understand what indentured servitude actually is, or you wouldn't use that phrase, repeatedly..
