Child labor is bad because children don't get an education, the machines they use are dangerous, and they need to help their parents who do not earn a living wage. That is why child labor is bad in my opinion.
The first reason why child labor is bad because they don't get a full education or a education at all. Karen Fanning said,” A typical farm worker earns $7,500 a year or less… , Hardly enough to support a family “. I got this from a website called scoolastic.com its was writen by Karen Fanning it was last updated Oct, 4, 2014. This quote is important because it means they would need their child to help double that to make a total of $15,000 hopefully enough to make it. That's why most kid don't go to school they have to help their parents.
The second reason why child labor is bad is because child labor is a very dangerous thing, their health is in danger everyday because of the danger toxics from machines. The ILO said,” Of these 168 million children 58 million of them are in what the ILO considers “Hazardous work ”. I got my information from a website called borgenproject.com and it was writen by Matt Berg it was writen in Oct. 2014. This is important because it means that means that out of the 168 million children involved in child labor 58 million are in serious danger the others are too but theirs is worse. That is why most of the time kids health is in danger.
The third reason why child labor is bad is because parents have to do what's best in order to survive without their kids they need their kids to help which means child labor. Reid Maki said ,” Farmers don't make a living wage, without pooling in the resources of all the family members they will not be able to survive”. This quote is from schoolastic.com it was writen by Matt Berg but it was said by Reid Maik. I think this quote is important because if they don't make enough money to survive you need your kids to work AKA child labor we have minimum wage for people so everyone working is making a living wage. That's why some parents have to put their kids in child labor.
In conclusion child labor is bad because children get hurt or injured by the dangerous machines, don't get the education they need or want, they have to help parents who don't make a living wage. That’s why many kids get hurt or don't have a education and have to spend their whole life getting paid under minimum wage. They probably grow up to stay with their parents even when they're adults parent can't make enough without them and they can't without them. This is why child labor is bad in my opinion.
