Eng. 100 – Sum. 160 Elshimi, Spr. 2000 Directions: You have three quarters of an hour to read and summarize the following passage. The number of words in the passage is indicated in brackets, at the end of the passage. Your summary should be approximately one third the length of the original text. Children and Labor Nobody knows for sure the extent of child labor. Countries protect their reputations by not keeping those sorts of statistics. However, the International Labor Organization estimates that 120 million children aged 5 to 14 work full-time and a further 130 million work part-time. However, the figure may be as high as 500 million when including the numbers of children doing domestic work. Not all forms of labor exploit children, since in the majority of cases, children work directly for their families - in the home, in the fields or on the streets - simply to ensure that they can survive. However, much child labor is exploitative - many children are forced into dangerous or grossly underpaid work in factories, plantations or domestic service.

    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.

    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.
