Child labor in tobacco production on US farms

Having grown up on a tobacco farm in the 50's & early 60's and seeing the change in tobacco production, I would have to take exception to the referenced post. First of all why would an "international rights group" be "interviewing" 7 year old children on a subject like this? Were parents involved? Can they provide any supporting data on when, where, how, the data was obtained. Were the children American citizens or "illegal alien" children? On the surface this appears to be more sensational reporting.
