How did child labor exist?
In Child Labor
the question asked is how did child labor exist? To me i am of the view that the underlining path for its existence is poverty and exploitation by affluent people over the less privelage in the society. though many factors contributed to it to escalate the more in recent times to the world attention , wars and our countries economic plannning lack the focused to tackle this sector povertywhich is evil to the economy and denting the image.

"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)
A way to prevent Child labor is to donate money so that a child can have an education. Another one is to build a home for the children. In there they will not be allowed to work, but only to learn! There they will have a chance to have a better life. After all they are our future
Child labour happens mostly in poor and developing countries. 61% of child labourers live in Asia and 32% live in Africa and 7% live in Latin America. Here is a list of countries that use child labour: India, China, Nigeria, Korea, Ethiopia, Russia, Thailand, Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Angola, Argentin…a, Brazil, Uzbekistan, Columbia, Burma, and in many, many more countries around the globe.

start making people pay fins for making under age children working there is power in unity. if we all banned together to oppose this problem, we can succeed.
In the US, children were not always required by law to go to school until at least the age of 16. Public education was not always available so children went to work as soon as a job was found for them - usually between the ages of six - twelve. Children are inexpensive labor and they are small so, d…epending on the industry, they would be given jobs that require small hands or bodies that can move quickly. What little money they made was usually given to their parents or guardians. In some foreign countries children are still used as labor due to the fact that they are inexpensive, but their families could use the money. (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)

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.

Mostly these children work in hazardous working area with very cheap working value, and is harmed in every way in both mentally and physically.
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)
The factory Act was passed in 1833 which made it illegal for factory owners to employ children under 9 years old, this coincided with the abolition of Slavery in the UK in 1833 - 34. During this time it was becoming more recognised that children needed to be educated mostly for the upper classes, ho…wever under The Factory Act it was made compulsory for factory owners to provide 2 hours of education daily for under 13's Further legislation was enforced in 1844, 1847, 1850, 1853 and 1867. After 1867 factories could not employ under 8's and children between the ages of 8 and 13 were to receive at least 10 hours of education per week, this was by no means foolproof though and inspectors often found it difficult to prove the age of child and a lot of factory owners did not provide the correct hours set side for education - that's in the U.K (MORE)
Yes, they do because there "weed" sweaters were made by 6 year olds. They beat kids and called them dogs if they wouldnt do it right and nike there slogan is just do it but to there kids they say just do it but u better do it right so F*** THOSE COMPANIES WHO USE CHILD LABOUR
when you say why....? why not ??? would you like to be forced to do stuff you wouldn't want to?? there is every reason to stop child labour it is cruel!!!
Here are a couple of countries that uses child labor: Vietnam, Afghanistan, Ecuador, Ghana, Ukraine, and more
first of all people should not send kids to work especially villages and urban areas . by stage speech and by non violence . if people denote 5000 a kids study one term or one year in government school.
Not any longer ! In Victorian times and maybe Edwardian there was child labour but it is long gone now.
a child should start working at the age of 14 according to the child labor .
Because you have a heart and children work everyday for you to stuff your face with chocolate when they cant get an education because they have to work. We should care about child labor because children should get the chance to learn, build up skills and hobbies, enjoy life, play and entertain.
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.

The reason why children are in child labor is because they have no choice to do it, they are forced to work many hours to help their families.
Answer: Child labor has existed in the history of almost every country in the world, including the United States. Some countries in Central and South America, Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa still use child labor as it hasn't necessarily been outlawed in their countries. Some still use child labo…r even though it has been outlawed where they live. (MORE)
This worked because nobody cared if children liked it or not to work for rich families. Poor families needed the money for food and they had lots of children for more money because each child worked 12 hours a day for 6 days of the week. They felt that being their children, those kids were absolutel…y under their control and they would obey all that the parents would say. The kids, who were scared of being punished, would simply listen to their parents. (MORE)
- cheaper companies - help them pay off debts - get at least some money
It really depends on what you think. Many people think that child labor is horrible and should never be used. During the Industrial Revolution, children at even the age of 4 were working 12 hour days and receiving pay much less than the adult workers. Factory owners hired these children because they… were cheaper to hire. Other people think that child labor was absolutely fine. They believe that it gives them experience and helps them to learn the ways of business so they can someday open there own businesses already knowing what to do, because they did as children. (MORE)
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, many companies use it today, like: . Nike . Coca-Cola . McDonalds . Wal-Mart et cetera.... Nike is a major user of child labor.
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)
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.
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.
Labour Unions were originally formed (mainly) during the IndustrialRevolution. By banding together, unions tried to help the oftendowntrodden and underpaid workers. Workers who were often forced towork long hours in cotton mills, or down coal-mines, etc, and hadno security of employment.
