Child labour and human dignity
It is known that in today's world the work is essential for a person to have a decent life.However, the use of child labor in certain sectors of the workforce has broughtmany problems.
First, the use of child labor is a crime (in most countries). They are more sensitive and often do not have the mental and physical ability to perform the service.
The child labor is used mainly by the low pay they receive and the ease of manipulation of these by employers.
Another factor that may be taken into account, concerns the fact that the work mainly full-time, prevents children from having a frequency and consequently, good school performance. This favors the maintenance of the precarious life they lead.
It is also worth noting that the use of children decreases the vacancies for adults, withoutemployment, often fall into the world of crime.
However, due to the miserable life, many children find themselves forced to work to help support their families.
Therefore, it is necessary to carry out programs that fight poverty, but at the same timeprovide a quality study to children in need, for only thus will have decent jobs and the possibility of providing a better quality of life for their children.
In 2008, still 215 million children worked.
