Child Labor (童工)



"Children have to go to school until the age of fourteen." Aunt Nora said. Ronan 到美國的第一件事是去上學,而非去工作。 但在更早以前,許多兒童為了生活必須在很小的年紀時去工作,而無法受教育。在台灣對童工也有法律的規範。
勞動基準法中所稱的童工,是指「15歲以上未滿16歲之受僱從事工作者」。
僱用童工雇主應置備其法定代理人同意書及其年齡證明文件。未滿16歲之青少年如徵得父母同意於寒暑假打工,則必須注意以下:童工每日之工作時間不得超過8小時,也不得於午後8時至翌晨6時之時間內以及例假日工作。
如今,世界上仍有童工的問題存在。


Now it's time to unite
Take a stand for children's rights
to dream, to learn, to play
to grow in safety day by day
Bring child labor to an end
支持兒童有夢想未來、學習、玩樂的權利、並能在安全的環境下成長。





請閱讀All Work, No Play, 思考以下問題,

1.What if you could not play or go to school?
2. What if you had to go to work every day?
3. Today, most children do not work. But some children still have to. Do you think this is fair?
4. How can you do to help?




Manhattan

紐約曼哈頓聚集著各處來尋求American Dream的人們,許多電影也以此地做拍攝地點,除了透過影片說出他對這城市的熱愛,也有電影像The Day After Tomorrow 明天過後,用象徵人類文明Manhattan高樓林立的場景,與迎面撲來的海嘯(Tsunami)作對比,像是大自然(Nature)對文明的挑戰。透過以下的片段來認識一下紐約的面貌吧!







 The American Dream

Many Americans believed in "The American Dream". Its new immigrants believe that if you work hard, change is possible.  The song " America" from the musical "Westside Story" shows how people picture about their American Dream. 

音樂劇"西城故事" 中的 America 道出美國人對只要努力,改變是有可能的夢想,這就是美國大夢。
