It was possible to reveal the criminal scheme thanks to information about one boy who worked in a warehouse.
Inspectors from Alabama (USA) found a 16-year-old boy working in a Hyundai Glovis Co Ltd warehouse and found that he was using a fake ID and a fake Social Security card.
Hyundai Glovis said the boy was hired by a recruitment agency to pack boxes, which is acceptable for his age. But investigators found that the recruiters hired the boy before he was 16, in violation of child labor regulations. In addition, the boy was carrying heavy boxes in the warehouse.
*This material was created by a person who has the status of a foreign agent in the Russian Federation.
Answering in Spanish, the boy said his name was Fernando Ramos, he was 18 years old and attended Montgomery High School. But investigators have determined that the real Fernando Ramos is a 34-year-old man who lives in Texas. He was extremely surprised to learn that his identity is being used to legalize child labor in car factories in Alabama.
The inspectors found out the real name of the child and contacted his father.
In the United States, minors can work as waiters, shop assistants, or in clothing stores. But it is forbidden to hire persons under 16 in industrial plants where machines, heavy loads and other risks can be dangerous.
