Child Labor is Getting out of hand. We need to act on this immediately.
You're right. we need to find a way to eliminate this. Just because children are born into poverty doesn't mean they should be deprived of proper schooling, and more importantly a proper childhood.

People are realizing that all across the world child labor is becoming more and more prominent. People need to realize that the change needs to come.
All over the world, children ranging from six to 18 are forced to do labor daily. In some cases, it can be very physically demanding.
In multiple third world countries, children are forced to push their limits for little to no pay just to produce the good that we use and consume on a daily basis without knowing it.
We grew up in a very privileged society. These children did not. they are forced to work just to keep their families on their feet.
Our world has become one of the most sophisticated ever; and it couldn't be possible without these children. they live in the harshest conditions while we live in a thriving world.
The average American goes through 12 year of formal schooling. these children would be lucky to get 3. they are put into these factories from young ages. this needs to change. be the change and find a way to take action.
