Child Labour

  1. 1. Child Labour
  2. 2. What is Child Labour?What is Child Labour? Child labour refers to the employment of  children in any work that deprives  children of their childhood, interferes  with their ability to attend regular  school, and that is mentally, physically,  socially or morally dangerous and  harmful.
  3. 3. During Industrial RevolutionDuring Industrial Revolution During the Industrial Revolution, children as young as four were  employed in production factories with dangerous, and often fatal,  working conditions. Based on this understanding of the use of  children as laborers, it is now considered by wealthy countries to be  a human rights violation, and is outlawed, while some poorer  countries may allow child labour.
  4. 4. Causes of Child LabourCauses of Child Labour International Labour Organisation suggests poverty is the greatest  single cause behind child labour. Also, certain cultural beliefs have rationalised child labour and  thereby encouraged it. Some suggest that the causes for child labour include both the  demand and the supply side.
  5. 5. Eliminating ChildEliminating Child LabourLabour Concerns have often been raised over the buying public's moral complicity in  purchasing products assembled or otherwise manufactured in developing  countries with child labour. However, others have raised concerns that  boycotting products manufactured through child labour may force these  children to turn to more dangerous or strenuous professions, such as  agriculture. We should suggest not to follow child labour and eliminate it.
