"Child labor" is, generally speaking, work for children that harms them or exploits them in some way (physically, mentally, morally, or by blocking access to education)
Answer . the question asked is how did child labor exist?.

Child labour still exists in many countries, but mostly in Asia,where they make children as young as 6 make clothes, toys and shoesfor our country to sell and get money for. They only get roughly50p a day, and are treated badly. Unicef estimates that about 218 million children between the agesof fiv…e and seventeen are in the world's labor force. This abuseisn't limited to the poorer nations of Africa and Asia. By theirestimate 2.5 million children labor in industrialized andtransitional nations. Country's that still has child labour would be . china . India . Asia . south Africa . South America and that's just some ! (MORE)

Most countries in Asia do child labour, but there has been a few in Europe. Most countries have some form of child labor; some have more than others. Child labor occurs when a community, a region, or a country is very poor and every member of a family must contribute to the economy of the family in… order to survive. In countries that have limited areas of hard poverty, child labor would still be found. The most obvious might be in the entertainment field but there is everything else from farm labor to prostitution. (MORE)
Child labour still takes place in many poor or developing countries. Developing countries as in places which are srtongly impacted by poverty as for their daily lives. As the question is "Where is child labour still done?" Then the answer is what I have mentioned above however a few examples would …be: Countries in most parts of Asia, most countries in Africa, most countries in South Africa, and in other parts of the world in which it is considered to be illegal. That's practically most of the world in which child labour is supported in a way. It's not completely supported however, in a place full of so much poverty it most likely for it to be considered a normal aspect of life. Legal Places in which child labour is supported ex : India, Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, South Africa, Mozambique, Saudi Arabia, Venezvuala, Brazil, Jamaica And there are many more countries what is listed above is less than half of the total percent of countries supporting child labour.

The question should be why is there child labour, as it still exists today.. Some causes of child exploitation are (but not limited to) poverty, lack of education, and bottom feeding.. POVERTY - Poverty is the main reason for child labour. Poor families need money to survive and thus need to ha…ve as many family members working as possible. This means that their children also have to work as they bring in an additional source of income. Also sometimes in extreme situations parents would sell their kids to rich people as domestic workers for money.. LACK OF EDUCATION - The lack of education is a very big issue in developing countries. Because most of the children are uneducated, they do not know their rights or the laws that may help/benefit them. As a result they end up being abused (receive cruel and intolerable treatments) or used (underpaid, forced to work even though they are under-aged).. BOTTOM FEEDING - Bottom feeding is when big corporations take advantage of the poverty stricken and make a profit for their company. In this world of consumerism, most, if not all, companies want to maximize profit and they do this by increasing sales or reducing production cost. To increase sales, one main factor that they could change is the cost, if the cost is reduced more people will be able to buy it and thus they will make more sales. But how would they reduce the cost? To reduce the cost of the good, and not reduce their profit, they would think of a way to reduce the production cost, and this is where child labour comes into play. By employing children, they could reduce production cost, as employing children would cost less than employing adults. (MORE)
Yes, of course. Child labor refers to exploiting children in such a way so as to deprive them of their childhood. It interferes with their ability to acquire any education, it ruins their health and leaves them with little freedom to play. It can take various forms such as involuntary servitude, c…hild slavery, sale by parents, etc. In the United States during the Industrial Revolution children were forced to work long hours in industrial settings with little food and water and little time off to rest. They were overworked, inhaled dangerous substances, their health was usually ruined, their growth stunted and they often died young. Uniform child labor laws were finally passed in the United States by the early twentieth century. Around the world child labor is still commonplace. It is estimated that over 215 million children from 5 to 17 are in forced employment around the world suffering conditions that are illegal, hazardous and/or extremely exploitative. See related links. (MORE)
Some countries that still have child labor are Taiwan, China, India, Pakistan, Africa, & Vietnam.
The policy was gradually phased out in 2015. Women were forced to have abortions if it became known that theywere violating the One Child Policy. Families were fined "$370 to$12, 800, and if they could not pay, their land or animals weretaken.
Mostly these children work in hazardous working area with very cheap working value, and is harmed in every way in both mentally and physically.

England has existed as a unified entity since the 10th century; the union between England and Wales, begun in 1284 with the Statute of Rhuddlan, was not formalized until 1536 with an Act of Union; in another Act of Union in 1707, England and Scotland agreed to permanently join as Great Britain; the …legislative union of Great Britain and Ireland was implemented in 1801, with the adoption of the name the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland; the Anglo-Irish treaty of 1921 formalized a partition of Ireland; six northern Irish counties remained part of the United Kingdom as Northern Ireland and the current name of the country, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, was adopted in 1927.

hi child labour is not good beacouse childeren is our furture of lead....so they will educated...so they give me more knowleage.
Examples of child labour (which is illegal uner UN conventions) DO exist in some countries where the laws are not adequately enforced.
The child is diverted from the usual non-work activities of youth: school, play, sport. Some work is dangerous for children. Some supervisors feel more free to prey on vulnerable youth than on adults.
Rather than child labour the government should give money to every child to be educated,have better medical facilities..child labour occurs when only the government isn't able to provide the above things
it is frequently seen as occurring in impoverished countries, undeveloped countries, countries with high employment, or families with high dept or low income.
A Child Labor Payment Depends on what kind of labor they are doing and how long it takes. If its a simple house chore, such as washing dishes should be paid about $3.50-$5.00 a week nothing too much but nothing too little. If the child is willingly doing an actual job,I say treat them like they are …an actual worker. --That's just my opinion-- Hope it helped :) (MORE)
No it does not. I was a subscriber it was a great fanzine. Ken did publish a book, found on most book sites. If interested. jimpress.com is the first and still publishing fanzine.
a child should start working at the age of 14 according to the child labor .
News vendors (H'extra!), farm seed vendors on Bicycles ( Burpee seeds, for example) and some forms of food service still practice this form of labor. The Newspapers actively campaigned against child labor laws- as this would have impacted their Logistics! This even applied to the progressive papers …who claimed to have( their finger on the pulse of the public opinion) or words to that effect. They were careful to have committess called ( Circulation managers) that does not even use the phrase child labor.- to lobby Washington. the laws were swung so they only affected articles or labor in Interstate commerce- by the way you never see kid newsies in Bus terminals or airports, do you? but normally Newspapers do not essentially cross state lines- so were exempt.

Child abuse is the abuse of children, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Child labor is illegal because they don't want 2 year olds working in factories so their parents would sue the company. People who labor children with adult work are abusers of children, no exceptions.
Labor laws, that is, laws that govern the relationship, and enforcestandards of conduct, between employers and the employed, existbecause frictionless economic efficiency can often operate to thedisadvantage of the employed, even to the point of the violation ofthe basic civil rights of the employed…. ----- Left to themselves some businesses and even whole industries willabuse the employees with low pay, unsafe working conditions,sometines virtual slavery, unfair employment contracts and otherabuses. One needs only look at histrory; garment workers, coalminers, Chinesse railroad workers, sweat shops, asbestos workersand on and on to see why there are labor laws. Business will takethe cheap way out unless there are laws to set standards. Americancompanies who must follow our labor laws put facilities in othercountries to avoid those laws. (MORE)

Yes No one stopped it. Congress outlawed it 80 years ago, under most circumstances, not all. Union have no power to outlaw anyhting.
As you will probably know child labour was at its peak in the Victorian era. The three most common jobs given to children were chimney sweeping, mining and working in workhouses/mills. Chimney sweeping had results of: Getting stuck, Chest problems, Burning alive & Permanent scaring and bru…ising Mining had the similar results: Getting stuck, Breathing problems & Lifelong cuts and infections The outcomes of workhouses/mills: Loss of body parts, Permanent bruising and cuts & Death I hope this comes of use to you, if you need more information a good website to visit is at the related link below.

I think... its the poverty... bcoz of poverty the country is nt able to eradicate child labour...laws are nly made for books or just meant for reading... nobody cares to implement.
Child labor is an abusive institution that may still exist ineconomically poor societies or nations. Many times the child isforced under punishment to work and in extreme cases there werereports of children actually chained to rug weaving machines. Children are badly affected by forced labor. They, …before they evenentered the work force were very likely poorly fed, and nothinglater, when working would indicate that that has changed. Having achild work takes away playtime with their friends which is normaland healthy. The children are also poorly educated as well. Sophysically and mentally they are deficient. They tend to grow upnot trusting anyone or anything. Societies that allow this orconveniently "look the other way" are breeding a generation ofdiscontent young people. The scars of child labor can be enduring. As a "worker" manychildren instinctively may realize that they are being exploited.Their respect for parents or guardians becomes fear rather thenrespect. Child labor is a practice that also lowers the child'sself esteem. (MORE)
To understand why child labour is still in use in certain areas of the world you need to look at the economics of the specific regions concerned as well as the economic situation of the people living in those areas. The exploitation of children as labour normally occurs in third-world ares with ext…remely low income and normally affects those of a lower social status within those specific areas. As an example you may find a family living in a rural area of India (I am only using India to illustrate the point, as there are many other areas). The average income of a 4 or 5 person family unit may be as low as 1 or 2 US Dollars a day, and that is only if the breadwinner can find work. Most reasonable people will understand to feed, clothe and school a child on a Dollar a day is impossible, let alone feed, shelter and clothe a whole family unit. Work in these areas is normally scarce, so if someone offers your children a Dollar or 2 Dollars a day to sit in a factory this is a lot of money; it can mean the difference between life and death. From a first world perspective child labour is an applauding thought, as most people could simply not imagine why a parent would allow or even place their children in this situation. The simple fact of the matter is that in most cases these people do not have a choice, and of course there are employers who are equally unscrupulous who take advantage of this fact. In order to eradicate the use of child labour you have to not only address the issue of the employers, but also the underlying social causes such as poverty. By removing the factories and employers all this does is force people to look for other ways to fight for a living - this could even lead to a greater problem than child labour, which would be the slave trade or prostitution.

Labour can be anyone who is being forced to work or where a woman goes into labour (has a baby) or the party Labour. Child labour is where a child is being ilegally forced to work.
As far as I know they still exist, but I don't know their position as related to the national curriculum.
It's ironic that the United States is a huge advocate against child labor around the world, even when child labor still exists today in American soil. Agricultural jobs tend to have the most child labor because the government has never bothered to pass laws to protect agricultural workers, specifica…lly those that pick vegetables. (MORE)
We can never stop child labour if we don't start doing something know we may get involved in this business hahaha what the hell am i taking about : )
No, because Not all work done by children should be classified as child labour that is to be targeted for elimination. Children's or adolescents' participation in work that does not affect their health and personal development or interfere with their schooling, is generally regarded as being somethi…ng positive. This includes activities such as helping their parents around the home, assisting in a family business or earning pocket money outside school hours and during school holidays. These kinds of activities contribute to children's development and to the welfare of their families; they provide them with skills and experience, and help to prepare them to be productive members of society during their adult life. The term "child labour" is often defined as work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development. It refers to work that: (MORE)

About 10 cent on a good day. Like around 10-20 cents a day When they work 16 hours each day!
They needed these children to work, and as long as they were earning money for their families to support them, nobody was complaining (otherwise they would probably lose their jobs).

If it takes place at a hazardous job site- say a srip mine, it is also endangering the welfare of a minor. this is one reason why you don"t see many kids in risky Carnival stunts. one fall, bad for business!
no because if you take 3 and divide it by pie then add 4.76 to it would come out to 6.88
No. A child labourer is a person who employs children under the agelimit in that country.
Labour day exists because Labor Day is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men andwomen. It has been celebrated as a national holiday in theUnited States and Canada since 1894.
typical left wing party. They invest a lot of money into a lot of things normally trying to help the working class by making more grants available especially in deprived areas. They work closely with the unions to increase wages and minimum wage along with raising job seeker allowance. A specific ex…ample is that they managed to protect students in Wales from the raise in tuition fees by giving them grants meaning that Welsh students can pay Â£3000 a year rather than the Â£9000 in England. This helps social mobility because Wales has high unemployment so children from disadvantaged backgrounds are encouraged to attend university. (MORE)
