Why do countries and companies use child labor?
There are over 250 million child labourers around the world. Out of the children 5-14 19% are from Asia and the pacific 5% are from Latin America and the Caribbean while in Af…rica almost 27%and other is 5% and lastly unknown places around the world is 16%.
Child labor began about the same time that children first made an appearance. For centuries past, it was perfectly normal for children to work. Children would typically wo…rk in agriculture or in the family's craft or profession. This was a time when there was no school to attend and a child's education was in the care of a mother or father. Skills and trades were passed from generation to generation in this way. In more recent times, at the time of industrialization, children were employed as unskilled and low cost labor. Without the immediate protection of the family, working conditions for children were worse than for pre-industrial children. Over the course of the last century or so, the Western world has controlled and limited child labor to the point where it is difficult for a child to find even part time work. In other parts of the world, it is still common to see children at work although pressure from the Western consumers is having an impact on child labor globally.
Child labour happens mostly in poor and developing countries, many in Asian 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, Argentina, Brazil, Uzbekistan, Columbia, Burma, Brazil, and in many, many more countries around the globe, although it is impossible to get a complete list because many don't admit when they use child labour.

Child labour has always been around. In our industrialised world we set our children apart and educate them because we have the wealth to do this. however in most of the world… there is no such sentimentality and if you are able to do some thing to earn a living then you do it no mater what your age.
US companies do not use child labor illegally. Family businesses use their children legally.
It depends on the country where they use child labor, and what kind of rules the country has about it. If the laws don't let you use child labor then the company is using chil…dren illegally.
