Child labor

Child labor
April 26, 2016
Child labor is bad children because it makes them participate in hazardous work,does not allow them to get education,they get very little pay if they're lucky  and if they do get freed their family can't support everyone any more so the children are forced to go back to work.
   Child labor is hard and bad for kids because of hazardous work for example “Australia annually imports $16 million worth of tobacco produced by child labor, including tobacco produced in the U.S. Tobacco cultivation is extremely labor intensive and children are often subjected to serious health risks including nicotine poisoning. Most cigarette smokers in Australia are unaware of the origins of the tobacco they consume.”
This is bad because the kids can get poisoning from doing this and they do it all day with no pay so they can't pay for medical help or pay them selves out of child slavery”according to the ilo out of 168 million children worldwide are engaged in child labor,” of those 168 million children 85 million of them do hazardous work like tobacco cultivating.
Child labor is also bad because the children don't get any pay and if they do it's very little and if they do get out families cannot support themselves any more so they're forced to go back into child slavery “Recognizing that there is no single solution to end poverty, Craig and Marc created Adopt a Village, an innovative, holistic approach to development that provides access to five key pillars—education, clean water and sanitation, health care, food security, and alternative income—and empowers a community to lift itself out of poverty.”
Together these five pillars have a greater impact than each pillar could make on its own. “A school that also delivers food and clean water programs ensures that girls can go to class, instead of walking long distances to fetch dirty water for their families”. A medical clinic and alternative income programs ensures community health care that families can afford.
A my final reason why child labor is bad is because it does not allow you to get a good education because they have to work so much and because only one out of five children involved in child labor is paid for his or her work only they would be able to pay for their own education and they'll have to get water for their family themself or the school so they have to leave the community for a stable source of food and they are likely to pull the children from school to help with agricultural and livelihood activities AKA: child labor.
Child labor is bad for children it doesn't allow them to get a education,if they're lucky they get little pay also if freed families cannot support themselves so they have to go back to work and work it could even be hazardous work they do.
