Child Labour

Updated on August 10, 2015

What is Child Labour......?

"The use of children in industry or business, especially when illegal or considered inhumane." (search engine)

A touch of this curse.
A touch of this curse.

One of the biggest fraud with the humanity is child labour.

School age children are forced to leave studies and do work. Poor parents find it well that their children do a whole day job and handed over their wages to them.

There are different tasks handed over to children like washing car at signals, polishing shoes at different points, also as a waiter and the most common is selling different food items at bus stops,railway stations etc.

Famous Quote

“You can’t regulate child labour. You can’t regulate slavery. Some things are just wrong.

Michael Moore.

Cause

Those kids who should have pen in their hands, looked awful with tools.

Those lamps who want to glow, would be switched off for the sake of money.

Those little streams who want to flow would stopped by the rock of money.

People forget mortality and only looked towards their poverty. Their bellies are the cause of their children's laborious act.

We all should strictly condemn this brutal act. Welfare organization must take action on such parents who force their children to leave studies and start work.

Welfare organization also help those parents who have not enough resources to send their children to school.

On the other hand, governments should play an important role in reducing child labour by comforting their locals.

Government should give a huge part of national budget to education in order to support poor parents and also built more government institutions which is free to such children to overcome this curse of child labour.

One the most famous saying about child labour:

“If we can’t begin to agree on fundamentals, such as the elimination of the most abusive forms of child labour, then we really are not ready to march forward into the future”.

Alexis Herman.

Facts:

•The International Labour Organization estimates that 215 million children ages 5-17 are engaged in child labor (ILO, Accelerating action against child labour, 2010).

•Some children are forced to weave up to 18 hours a day, often never leaving the confines of the factory or loom shed.

•The highest numbers of child laborers are in the Asia/Pacific region, where there are 122 million working children.

Popular Slogan about Child Labour is "Do a Favour, Avoid Child Labour."

For awareness child labour day is commemorated on 12 June.

Your Opinion.

Who should be blamed most for this cause?

      I have a couple of those. It's not all bad. Usually I just adjust their hours. Make one work an excessively long time and the others not as much.
