The EU wants the undeveloped world to stay poor.

Not that it puts it quite like that, but that will be the result of this policy position, if acted upon:

"The EU is stepping up its efforts to promote 'fair globalisation' by ensuring that the international community takes better account of the effects of globalisation on people's working lives. Employment and Social Affairs Commissioner Vladimír Špidla will confirm the EU commitment to promote 'decent work' – meaning more and better jobs with welfare protection, equal opportunities and social dialogue – at an International Labour Organisation (ILO) forum on decent work for a fair globalisation in Lisbon today" Source

Špidla, is of course, a Socialist and therefore has chosen not to note that a panoply of expensive social protections and the like will serve to undermine the competitive advantage of the labour force in other parts of the world.

Typical European Commission.

In all of this fuss about child labour in Uzbekistan and elsewhere, it is never mentioned that Portugal has the worst record in Europe for child labour. Not just for police incompetence.

Yes - it's the panoply of social legislation which they're really aiming for.
