Tearful pictures of child labor worldwide


Child labor is work that harms children or keeps them from attending school. Around the world and in the U. S., growing gaps between rich and poor in recent decades have forced millions of young children out of school and into work. The International Labor Organization estimates that 215 million children between the ages of 5 and 17 currently work under conditions that are considered illegal, hazardous, or extremely exploitative. Underage children work at all sorts of jobs around the world, usually because they and their families are extremely poor. Large numbers of children work in commercial agriculture, fishing, manufacturing, mining, and domestic service. Some children work in illicit activities like the drug trade and prostitution or other traumatic activities such as serving as soldiers.
These following pictures give us a closer look of child labor worldwide and can make us shocked...

Child labor is now a international problem, especially in poor and slow-developed countries.
Child laborers have been exploited their health since their very young with many kinds of work.
We can see clearly the child labor in the slow-developed and war-happening countries
The countries, which have alarming rate of child labor, are India, Brazil and Kenya.
In these countries, a lot of children at the age of 9 or 10 have to work up to 12 hours per day.
These children have no chance to go to school and just receive a little money in comparison with grown laborers’ salary.
When poverty was surrounded then paid employment is the most important thing that children and their parents are placed on top priority instead of learning.
The money to hire a child labor is very cheap and there are always a lot of poor children ready for work
The problem of child labor does not only reduce, but also quickly rises up.
The United Nations warned that the labor for children at their young age is a serious violation of children's rights and their health will be affected directly by hard labor.
