Unless all consumers complaint against Child Labour we wont be able to eradicate this disease from the society, We must come together to teach a lesson to those who promote child labour and don’t understand the crime they are doing.
Child labour is one of the most important problem in the world. The main and single cause that drives children to work is poverty i.e. the lack of money. Income from a child’s work is usually cruicial for his/her own survival or for that of the household. Also, the another thing is the lack of meaningful alternatives such as affordable schools, medical care and etc. Every Child Has the Right to Be Happy, Healthy, Protected and Loved, and no one has right to deprive children of their childhood. Child labour interferes to his/her physical, mental and social development. Moreover, not only it will harm to their health, but also it is dangerous. As,they do physically hard work, which is usually done by adults, and futher this may bring death or other serious problems. I am totally against of child labour, and if we want to live in a bright future, we should try to avoid this problem. we should fight against child labour and give a fair chance to children to grow up healthily and happily.
If you are completely against child labour, yet acknowledge that they are forced into it through poverty, and have to work to survive, what do you propose that these children do without their wages? How would they buy food, get by, or even live?
I agree wholeheartedly that it’s a terrible thing. I’ve seen so many children living with ruined childhoods – playing on crowded dirty streets full of traffic, bathing in dirty water, and yes, working to survive – and while I feel that these things are awful, I would rather they do that than not.
Your opinion seems to be that these things are bad so if we stop them then the problem will go away. Extreme poverty is one of the biggest problems in the third world: simply by removing a method of income for some of the poorest children in the world, which harms the child in some way, will not make the overarching problem go away.
Do not think of the world as a utopia, as an ideal of transcendental justice. Think of every decision, every action, every interaction between two people, to be an opportunity to improve the comparative justice of these people. While something may be unfair in itself, if it is fairer than the alternative, then you should make that decision. While child labour is awful, the alternative (the children dying due to lack of food) is much worse.
Do you mean that we should not fight against child labour? I agree that children dying due to the lack of food are awful. However, there are cases when children are forced to work, some of them exposed to the worst forms of child labour including slavery and armed conflict. Its parent’s responsibility to earn money and give their child a chance to become a personality, to go to school and take an appropriate knowledge, because children are our future… And nothing should thwart it…There are many ways of preventing child labour. For instance: give the jobs of child workers to their adult relatives this way, the family does not suffer, and indeed should be better off, as adult wages are generally much higher than child wages. Social services – that help children and families survive crises, such as disease, or loss of home and shelter and etc.. So it all depends on us.
