Child labor is pretty much slavery but they are after kids.
Child labor is kids are forced to work or they have to work for their families so they can get money. Usually kids who are in child labor do not get to go to school. Sometimes kids in child labor get sick and are not cared for this shows that they don’t care. Countries that have child labor sometimes have tricks. Child labor is happening more and more around the world. Kids who are in child labor do not get to live their childhood because they are always focused on working.
Child labor interferes with kids educations so they are not prepared for life when they are adults and they are always going to be physically tired. If kids break a bone they probably will just have to let it heal without any medical attention. Kids who are homeless have to go through child labor even though they get very low pay.
Chapter 1Kids should not half to do this.Kids should not half to do this because kids do not have the energy to work all day every day in sweltering heat with not much food and water because as kids they need water and food to grow and stay healthy. Children in history have been servants and apprentices but child labor has reached a new extreme because they do not care if kids get sick or they don’t care if kids don’t get food and water this shows me that they think that you should just fight it off.. According to the article child labor human rights watch ,”Over 100 million kids around the world are in child labor working in hazardous condition”, this shows me that people who have children for child labor don’t even take care of them.
” Child labor in africa, asia, and latin america kids are working in gold mines and in those gold mines they have toxic mercury ,and the mercury can cause brain damage ,and other serious health problems”. “A child that is forced to do work in a factory work may work up to 12 to 18 hours every day this shows that they don’t care if a children has his/her energy every day” . All the children in child labor have no time to play, no time to get to go to school, and they have no time to rest.
According to the article child labor history, “Child labor goes back in history, by 1810 over 2 million school aged children were working 50 to 70 hours a week”. Britain was the first place to regulate child labor. In the united states took them a long time to outlaw child labor but yet kids still have to do it. Kids that are in child labor for migrant workers do not have any protection from the government. Even some kids in child labor have to stay in child labor till they are adults.Chapter 2 At least keep kids healthy. “Kids all over are getting sick in tobacco farms because the tobacco leaves have pesticides on them and they have no protective gear”.”Over 100 million children around the world work in hazardous conditions in agriculture, mining, domestic labor, and other sectors” ,this shows me that dangerous conditions are no matter of too dangerous in child labor.
” On tobacco farms, children work long hours in extreme heat, exposed to nicotine and toxic pesticides that can make them sick”.” In Africa, Asia, and Latin America, child laborers in artisanal and small-scale gold mines work underground in pits that easily collapse and use toxic mercury to process the gold, risking brain damage and other serious health conditions”. “Hazardous child labor is work in dangerous or unhealthy conditions that could result in a child being killed”.” Hazardous child labor is one of the worst kinds of child labor because they work in hazardous or really dangerous conditions like extreme heat, mines that collapse and tobacco farms. The sad thing is that there are even more dangerous conditions. “Every day some 168 million kids have to go to child labor instead of school”.
Chapter 3There should be an age restriction.” I think that because kids as little as 7 years old are working in dangerous conditions”. Kids that young should not have to work because their bones would also break easily so there is a chance they will break.
” Kids that young are forced to work in gold mines, banana farms, tobacco farms and there are lot more places were the young kids have to work”. Kids that young don’t have the energy to be working all day long and do nothing else. They also have to carry very heavy things sometimes and they might not have the physical strength to do that.” As a general rule, the FLSA(FLSA is fair labor standards act )sets 14 years of age as the minimum age for employment, and limits the number of hours worked by minors under the age of 16″. “Non Agricultural employers must also post the Labor Department-issued Minimum Wage Poster listing minimum age requirements in a prominent place at the worksite”.
“Newly released 2016 estimates from the International Labor Organization indicate that there are 152 million children 5-17 years old in child labor, of which about 73 million are in hazardous labor that by its nature can have adverse effects on their health, safety, and moral development” this shows we should try to get kids out of these places”.Chapter 4Are there people who take action in trying to stop child labor? “Kailash Satyarthi is trying to stop child labor in his country”. As Kailash Satyarthi exclaimed” I have always wanted to work for children who are deprived of their childhood, the 60-year-old activist added”. “He was born in india ,1954”. “The BBa has gotten back thousands of children from a whole lot of different places around the world”.
According to their estimates they have gotten back over 80,00 children. Activists all over the world are trying to fix this. I think people should try to stop this because child labor is a problem all over the world, child labor is slavery. Child labor is a topic that many people do not know about. I wonder how many people are actually trying to stop child labor because we need more people to know about it so we can stop it. There are child labor free zones( “A child labor free zone is a village or plantation where everyone is convinced that no child should be working) ,but they believe all children should be in school)”,this shows me that around the world there are people who believe child labor is not right.
. There is a reason why we should try to stop this imagine what the kids are thinking they are probably thinking why do i have to be put through thisConclusionAfter you have read this article, will people try to stop child labor?

Sometimes people might think that the kids in child labor are fine when they really are not. Will you try to stop child labor.
