Introduction to Child Labor
Child labor goes on throughout the world, in many places children from all ages 3-18 are being forced to work.
Some children are pulled out of school, and some just do work because they need to help their family
pay for rent or food. The children in labor have to risk their lives to earn a small amount of money by doing difficult
or dangerous jobs. There are varieties of jobs that children are working in. For example, newspaper work, minders, factory
workers, sea food workers, fruit pickers, and salesman. The children are probably in bad health because of not having
enough food to eat being sick, and not getting enough exercise or sleep. These children also do not have their rights.
