CHILD LABOR IS CHILD ABUSE 2 Implications of Child Labor on Children and the Economy: Yesterday, today, and hopefully not tomorrow, children have being victims of the global market which seeks only profits, and holds no mercy. Imagine a child spending his, supposed-to-be fun, childhood in a farm or in a factory,drown in dirt and sweat, looking sickly pale and unhealthy. On the other hand, imagine a child enjoying his childhood secured, nurtured and looking really healthy. It is very heartbreaking to see a child not given his rights as a child and instead, they are taken advantage of and humiliated. Whether these children are exploited in global markets, since they are more profitable, or if they are obliged to work in a family business to support their families, those children shouldn’t be the wall that we lean on. Child labor initially appeared in the South, though debates were advocated by the West. Much of these debates were settled to protect the future generations and to guarantee a better life for our children. Despite the fact that minimum age laws were imposed to specify a certain age for children to work, child labor continues to rise. Especially in poor countries because children are ought to help in contributing to the family’s income. Therefore, it wouldn’t be surprising to see children working in, for example, a farm and handling tough tasks. Ultimately, child labor is not only considered exploitative, but it sort of violates children’s right and exposes them to violence and abuse. Hence, something should be done to protect them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
