"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)
Child labor is the act of children working instead of receving education
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.
Instead employing them give education
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 have 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.

A rights-based approach which relies on laws and their enforcement is therefore insufficient in isolation from broader human development considerations. For example, authoriti…es in India occasionally engineer police raids on suspect factories creating headlines that children have been "rescued". But such actions will be ineffective in the absence of institutional capacity to rehabilitate the children and assist their families in overcoming the loss of income. Laws need to be complemented with development programmes which recognise the practical difficulties in reintegration of children into formal education. Development agencies are now more likely to acknowledge that children themselves should be consulted. Many children are anxious to find ways of combining education with the economic expediency of helping their families. Formal global development strategies have tended to disregard the child labour agenda. For example, the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) for school enrolment aims for a total of five years of education, far less than implied by child labour conventions. There is increasing realisation that vital MDGs for poverty, education and health will not be achieved whilst child labour thrives. A cost/benefit analysis carried out by the UN in 2003 convincingly demonstrated the value of eliminating child labour by reference to the long term economic benefit of a more skilled and healthy workforce. As further evidence of interdependence, there is correlation between those countries lagging behind the MDG for education and those in which child labour thrives, such as Pakistan and Nepal. The integration of child labour concerns into national development strategies, backed by effective legislation, is therefore the preferred route to a lasting solution. top Consumer Campaigns against Child Labour Failure to deal with child labour is an emotive issue in rich countries. Consumers are sensitive to the track record of globalisation in driving labour costs and standards to the bottom. Disclosure of the use of child labour in sweatshops represents a major public relations disaster for both multinational companies and the host countries concerned. One country under the microscope is Uzbekistan. Its economy is very dependent the cotton crop, much of which is harvested by children taken out of school. The country will almost certainly be forced to respond to the 2008 boycott of its cotton products by Wal-mart and other multinational retailers. Another example is the cocoa industry in West Africa which has so far failed to meet deadlines in a longstanding attempt to certify its product. Critics say that international chocolate companies have made insufficient efforts to engage with the countries concerned in poverty reduction programmes. Almost 300,000 children are believed to work on the cocoa farms, many of them in conditions of bonded labour. There are however doubts over the effectiveness of western-inspired consumer boycotts. These can result in sudden closure of production lines and devastating loss of household incomes, contributing little to address the root causes of child labour.
hi child labour is not good beacouse childeren is our furture of lead....so they will educated...so they give me more knowleage.
My conclusion has always been that most companies do not do it correctly. Most do not spend nearly enough.
it is frequently seen as occurring in impoverished countries, undeveloped countries, countries with high employment, or families with high dept or low income.
Child labor is an abusive institution that may still exist in economically poor societies or nations. Many times the child is forced under punishment to work and in extrem…e cases there were reports of children actually chained to rug weaving machines. Children are badly affected by forced labor. They, before they even entered the work force were very likely poorly fed, and nothing later, when working would indicate that that has changed. Having a child work takes away playtime with their friends which is normal and healthy. The children are also poorly educated as well. So physically and mentally they are deficient. They tend to grow up not trusting anyone or anything. Societies that allow this or conveniently "look the other way" are breeding a generation of discontent young people. The scars of child labor can be enduring. As a "worker" many children instinctively may realize that they are being exploited. Their respect for parents or guardians becomes fear rather then respect. Child labor is a practice that also lowers the child's self esteem.
Child labour is a worry about our country. Govt should be pass a strict act against child labour, because child labour keep away the child from school, sports, and other enjoy…full things. So We should think about it deeply.
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 stu…nts. one fall, bad for business!
