Child labor is banned in China.
There is a law against mothers drowning their own children in the US ...

Since when do two wrongs make a right?

Regarding child labour in China..

The minimum age for working in China is sixteen.  Before The PRC Labor Law (Labor Law) was passed in 1994, the State Council issued The Provisions on the Prohibition of Using Child Labor (Child Labor Provisions) to prohibit child labor in 1991, which were amended in 2002.  In 2003, eight central government authorities including the Ministry of Labor, the Ministry of Public Security, and the Ministry of Education jointly issued a notice to reinforce implementation of Child Labor Provisions.

Article 15 of the Labor Law prohibits an employer to recruit minors under the age of sixteen, with exception made for institutions of literature, art, physical culture, and special crafts which may recruit minors through investigation and approval of the government authorities, and must guarantee the minors’ rights to compulsory education.  Using child labor without government approval may result in RMB5,000 (equivalent to about USD $660) fine per child worker per month.

Despite the legislative requirements, the practice of child labor is believed to be “a persistent problem within China” by some China watchers.  Though the CECC agrees that “the overall extent of child labor in China is unclear due to the government categorizing data on the matter as “highly secret”,” it cited a report on child labor in China finding that “child labors generally work in low-skill service sectors as well as small workshops and businesses, including textile, toy, and shoe manufacturing enterprises.”
