Oh Great, Child Labor Is On the Rise

Forced child labor is on the rise according to a new report from risk analysis firm Maplecroft. The UK firm examined 197 countries and found that around 40 percent were classified under the “extreme risk” category. Not surprisingly, conflict-torn countries and authoritarian regimes topped the list.

I blame these feelings on Los Angeles, where the lost boys pretend they’re still in their 20s so that they can get the coveted jobs and still pass as teenagers on “90210.” Real jobs and nesting are out of the question as they would stand in the way of auditions/freelance movie work/touring with their band. But The Daily Beast had an interesting article today called “15 Signs You’ll Get Married,” which seems to disagree with me.
