Child labor, an illegal course of action that increases work rate, production, and most of all, profit. This method of mass-production began in the early years of the Industrial Revolution. A big cause of child labor was the big business owners needed people to work in their factories; they chose children because of their relatively low level of education, lack of knowledge of their human rights, and accepted low pay. The employers should have a responsibility to tell the children their rights, what they’re doing, and what they’re getting for it. The worst area in the world for child labor is in third world countries, because the children are dropping out of school so they can get some money so they don’t starve to death.
Children across the world are working in unsafe conditions to make products, for cheaper labour and a cheaper price. Their lives are endangered working long shifts in terrible conditions all to be underpaid. Society is not accurately presented to all the information there is on child labour because there is not enough information being reported. In the end, it is an individual’s decision based on how they ethically and morally differentiate right from wrong. Nothing is being done to eradicate child labour because of the price differences, society is not being educated enough on the topic and every person’s definition of what they find ethically right or wrong.

The lack of equal quality education is producing a generational cycle of poverty in the country that is casting a gloomy burden on our schools and society for the future. Many individuals stay in poverty because they don't know there is a choice and have no one to teach them how to overcome it and become successful. Schools are the only place where students can learn the choices of other social classes. The chances of them overcoming the heavy obstacles that await them without the skills the need are very slim.
Without education children are unable to succeed and break the cycle of poverty therefore being unable to provide for there own family and forcing there own children into the workforce like generations before.6 Child labour often continues the cycle of poverty because children are overworked and economically exploited because they are paid at the lowest rates.7Child labor violates the basic right to a primary education and economically exploits children therefore promoting the cycle of
According to Aldaba, Lanzona and Tamangan (2004), one must incorporate both national and international definition regarding child labor considering 3 factors which include the type of activity the child is engaged to, their age and parental supervision. Basically, children who are engaged to any work which is considered as the “worst form” are called child labourers. This “worst forms” of work are occupations that endanger the general welfare and long-term development of a child. Age is also a factor regarding child labor. If a child under the age of 15 years old works without any supervision of parents, they are considered as child labourers since they are not guided by their parents and the work done by the child, even if it is not the “worst form” is also considered as child labor.
They need to work to survive on their own (Seabrook, Jeremy. New Internationalists, Sept. 2009) Bangladesh is considered one of the most vulnerable spots on the global market, a product of desperate poverty here and the demand of cheap labor elsewhere (Sengupta, Somni. New York Times, April 2002), which is why children work, because they can get paid less. It is normal for them to get a low income. Another reason for child labor in Bangladesh is that they need to have their children work so that they can make clothing for themselves and others.
Lack of access to school uniform can lead to bulling as children “don’t fit in”, so worrying class pupils are at a disadvantage. As I have stated before, on the other hand there is evidence to show that cultural factors do determine differential class attainment as well. It blames working class culture and ethnic minority culture for failure to achieve, it suggests that the reason working class and ethnic minority children fail is because their home culture is inadequate, especially in terms of parental attitudes, child rearing practices and language development. Douglas argues that working class and ethnic minority parents are less interested in there children’s education. He measured parental interest by counting the number of times parents visited schools for parents evenings etc.
Child labor not only prevents children from receiving an education, but the responsibility of supporting a family can cause long-term psychological and physical effects. Although many western activists are taking steps to regulate child labor, competition on the world market is slowing the reform process. After the industrial revolution, Children began to work outside of the home and leave the protection of their families to work in mines and factories. Child labor takes place because of a combination of social and economic factors. Dabeida Agramonte suggests the following are possible explanations for the occurrence of child labor: “Factors like poverty, lack of employment and low household income; lack of access to a quality education, the lack of alternative recreational spaces in communities and the existence of broken families.
The quality of life for minimum wage families is terribly low, and that is unacceptable. As humans, we should be looking after others and helping the poverty come out of their continuous cycle. Raising the minimum wage would not only help families be able to afford a better quality of life, but help them to afford healthy food, get an adequate education, and invest in the necessary health care they need. Many people against raising the minimum wage create arguments such as, “it will cause inflation”, or, “ it will result in job loss.” Not only are these arguments terribly untrue, they also cause a sense of panic towards the majority working-class. Since 1938, the federal minimum wage has been increased 22 times.
Their families cannot afford the education and even they cannot fulfil the basic needs of their family due to which they send their children to work. The government does not provide the basic needs to the people properly, which also cause child labour. The children are the future of the country, but in Pakistan children are going to work, to earn money, instead of going to school. This is because the future of Pakistan is in huge danger and it also causes the socio economic
