In conclusion, the most common three problems about child labour are health problems, lack of education and exploitation. Although infant worker should play games with their friends, go to school or have entertainment, they generally have to work in a job. In addition, some of them have psychological problems in their adult ages due to work long hours and cannot have time for entertainment. Poverty is the main reason for child labour. Governments ought to help these children for example; governments provide them legal and appropriate works and give them education while they are working.
In that time children worked in factories or coal mines for long hours and little pay. In a factory the owner required kids to work 12-18 hours a day, 6 days a week to only get a Dollar. Which was outrageous because the kids were doing work that adults should be doing such as tending machines and lifting heavy loads. Also the conditions the children had to work in were terrible and as a result they usually became sick. This raises the question “why would someone hire kids to work under such conditions?” the answer to that is, is that sometimes the kids have no choice but to work because of their parents’ economic situations and choose to work instead of living on the streets.
As well as parents, educators also lack the time and resources to positively influence students in their care. This lack of guidance is resulting in a generation of children without a sense of proper behavior and morale. Most parents are forced to limit the amount of time they can spend with their children. Our economy may be the largest factor that separates parents from their kids. In single parent homes, the parent often has to work two jobs to support their family.
An estimated two hundred and fifty million children ages six to fourteen work for pennies a day so that their families have food to eat and a place to live. One half of these children work full-time. 85% of these children come from Asia and Africa. These children don’t want to be working, but their parents normally force them to. Because of this, the children miss out on the opportunity to be educated.
While children had been servants, child labor extended while children had been servants, children labor reached the new limits during the industrial revolution. Children was not able to go schools; because they were to busy working for long hours, and they were working for a low amount of money that really can’t help their family; while they were working in factories with dangerous condition. This transition included going from hand production methods to machines; furthermore they do not catch their appropriate parental care and institution. Children should be allowed to enjoy their childhood and I don’t they should allowed to work like adults. They was not able to follow their dream, according to my opinion a child not be denied to go to school education just because of proverty.
Social Welfare: America Needs a Solution A single divorcee’ mother of two is working a minimum waged job that doesn’t pay life’s cost of survival. Not only does this mother have to take care of herself, she has children that need shelter, nourishment, and stability. In order for that to be possible, help is needed.

Child labor is morally wrong. The children shouldn?t be forced to work. Most children who work are little more than slaves to their employers. They put up with abuse, starvation, and sometimes never being paid for their work. One eight year-old boy, Munnilal, from Varanasi, I... ... middle of paper ... ...hould be passed to better the conditions in which they work though.
Some workplaces offer childcare but at such a price or with such bad service that the workers don’t want to leave their children. Some parents are forced, due to the lack of a suitable childcare facility, to leave their children unattended. Others make the decision to quit the workforce to care for their children. Another reason for the need of good of childcare facilities is the lack of adequate teachers and employee turnover in the childcare industry. This is due to lower pay, usually minimum wage, and the challenges of keeping the worker/child ratio at or greater than the law requires with the business remaining profitable.
Everyone who has ever slightly paid attention in history class knows that child labor was a significant problem back during the Industrial Revolution. Families were poor and the parents usually had unstable jobs which led to their children going out and finding dangerous, low-paying factory jobs. But laws were made in many countries and child labor slowly became a thing of the past. Or did it? Believe it or not, child labor is still a problem today.
Working everyday for 18 hours he earns 60 cents to $1.20 a day. The health of the boys is terrible as they breathe in the harmful graphite dust found in the mines and they do not have enough to eat. There are many children who have to do this every day of their lives, and this issue cannot be ignored. The ILO (International Labour Organization) defines child labour as work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development. Some say that child labour is work that can ruin the lives of children.
