Hyundai factory in Alabama accused of using child labor after 13-yr-old went missing

Welcome to the year 2022, when the left’s culture of abuse is like a tornado whipping through society and destroying everything good in its path,  with its latest touchdown at an Alabama Hyundai supplier factory where as many as 50 migrant children were reportedly working despite labor laws that prohibit underage factory workers.

Law enforcement started an investigation into the conditions at the metal stamping factory after a 13-year-old girl disappeared with another 21-year-old Guatemalan migrant employee Alvaro Cucul in February, The Daily Mail reported.

The girl was located in a Georgia parking lot the same day she was reported missing using cell phone data. She told officers that they ran off together in search of work.

The girl’s father, Pedro Tzi, confirmed that his daughter and his two sons (age 12 and 15) were all employees at the factory. The children were also not attending school.

One former employee alleged that, in total, there were over four dozen children as young as 12 years old employed in the factory at a given time although the plant has apparently since laid off many of its underage workers due to the coverage over Tzi’s daughter’s disappearance.

A 39-year-old former employee of the plant claimed she had worked alongside a girl who “looked 11 or 12 years old,” although the girl told her she was 13.

“She was way too young to be working in that plant, or any plant,” Tabatha Moultry said.

Many others agreed, wondering if this was just the tip of the iceberg given the recent migrant invasion at the southern border.

SMART Alabama LLC, the automotive parts manufacturer, is listed as a subsidiary of the Korean-based car maker to whom they have provided parts since 2003, according to Reuters.

Hyundai declined to address details about the finding, instead issuing a statement that said it “does not tolerate illegal employment practices at any Hyundai entity. We have policies and procedures in place that require compliance with all local, state and federal laws.”

SMART specifically wrote in its own statement that it “denies any allegation that it knowingly employed anyone who is ineligible for employment” because they use temporary work agencies to assist with the hiring process that “follow the law in recruiting, hiring and placing workers on its premises.”

Tzi’s children plan to attend school when summer is over and confirmed they are no longer working in the factory.

“All that is over now. The kids aren’t working and in the fall they will be in school,” he said.
