This is a question Child Labour

There is a special part of Hell I'd like to reserve for those arses that order every single Sunday paper. Do you know how heavy that makes the bundle of papers some poor kid (ie me) has to lug around? Funny how your papers always seemed to get mangled in your letterbox...

I loved my paper round, but, looking back, I was getting paid peanuts to ruin my back and cycle around in the cold and dark. How were you exploited as a child?

Milk Round
Got a job helping out on a Milk Round, when I was about 13. Paid well at £5 a day, Mon to Sat I thought, but I had to start at 4.30 am till 8 am, so it was £1.43 an hour (not so good really, but better than a paper round which was £5 a week, at the time)
I was ran ragged, as walking wasn`t allowed, and the tight fisted bastard fired me when I failed to wake up one morning, after about 6 months, of 6 hours sleep a night, followed by 3 1/2 hours of hard exercise, then a day of school.
