'We Blew It': Nike Admits to Mistakes Over Child Labor

Steve Boggan

The multi-billion dollar sportswear company Nike admitted yesterday that it "blew it" by employing children in Third World countries but added that ending the practice might be difficult.

Nike attempted to present itself to its shareholders in its first "corporate responsibility report" as a touchy-feely entity established by "skinny runners" and employing young executives who worried about the environment and the level of wages it paid.

This is really sad and I can’t believe that this is happening in our world it is disgusting! I feel so bad for all these under age children working for their family when they could be out playing a game with their friends instead of being stuck in a room all day making things that other people get and we are sitting around letting it happen! if this is what it’s like today imagine the future!
