The Intern Wears Garanimals
Last month, Kameron Hurley proposed a workplace where children would act as interns, prompting criticism from Amber Taylor. Now from News of the Weird I find:

Also in June, the BBC reported that under a system in India that guarantees a job for one relative of any government employee who dies while in service, children as young as five are currently working at Indian police stations; their responsibilities are largely confined to filing and serving tea.

While I like the idea of a short person bringing me a Spode teacup full of Earl Grey, I fear competing for my current shred-and-file position with children, who demand ridiculously low salaries and could actually get away with asking for an hour off for naptime.
