Child Labor

Child labor has forced children to work to provide for their families. They have sacrificed their education to do this. Some children work about 11 to 12 hours per day, six days a week.

The website ''American Historma'' stated that the weekly average salary is about a dollar for children. ''American Historma'' says, "Children as young as five years old were paid below wages until they were in their teens. "The author of 'American Historma'' writes, The cause of most children's deaths during work were fires, explosions, cave-ins and trainwrecks."

More than 200 million children today are child labourers.-----------73 million of these children are below 10 years old

The author of the website ''Continue to Learn'' writes, "Millions of children that are involved in child labor under any circumstance, is considered uncapebel for children to work. The website ''Continue to Learn'' says, in 1983 federal registration of child labor achieved fair labor standards. The website ''Contiuneto Learn'' also stated, that working conditions that are safe and healthy for adults may not be safe and healthy for children.

The highest number of child laborers is in sub-Saharan Africa.

The website "Compassion" states that they are a lot of children worldwide trapped in child labor. The website "Compassion"says nearly 60% of child labor takes place in argue culture. The website "Compassion" states that, forced labor is bought to generate around $150 billion dollars a year in illegal profits. Compassion" states that, former child labor victims are much more likely to have only primary education or less.

Possible Solutions to End Child Labor:

Other Solutions:

1. To provide education opportunities to children in place of enforced labor

2. To create more unions to protect the worker and to work to prevent child labor

3. To change how the public views this problem

4. To create a family minimal income


In conclusion, I chose this topic because I thought this was a subject that is not often discussed.

Children involved in child labor who don't get enough time for education are most likely to be illiterate, unskilled, have poor health, and may will have to remain unemployed.

This will effect the child's future, the child's family, and the future of the country---and even just one country will effect the global picture!

We need to recognize child labor as a violation of children's and workers' rights, and work with trade unions to join with families and community organizations to combat child labor, to move children out of work and into school,
