Wal-Mart has repeatedly violated U.S. child labor laws and profited from overseas child labor abuses.

A recent investigation revealed children, some only 11 years old, were making Wal-Mart clothes in a Bangladesh factory. The children report being routinely slapped and beaten, forced to work 12 to 14 hours a day, often seven days a week, for wages as low as 6 and a half cents an hour.

In the United States, Wal-Mart's own internal audit found 1,371 instances in which minors worked too late at night, during school hours, or too many hours in a day. It also found 60,767 instances of workers missing breaks and 15,705 instances where employees were forced to work and miss meal times.

      The petition was closed when I tried to sign, but I did send out a email to Wal-Mart denouncing their practices. My Mom, friends and I have also stopped shopping at their stores.

      I strongly disagree with child labor and it's thoughtlessness and abusive nature! I encourage you to cease the employment of children. Until then, my family, friends, and I will not buy any products from your company.
