  • Cannot afford to working, have family to feed, infrastructure not well developed

    Child labour employment is an ethical practice to an extent, in 3rd world countries it is where child labour most likely to be seen because the economic status are relatively poor, some of the family barely manage to buy food, financially they cannot afford school fees. Opposition may say 'children should be at school and childhood should not be at work', yes I agreed but has to be realistic, we are living in 1st world country ofcause we can afford to say this.

  • Child labour lets us lead sustainable lives.

    Someone has to suffer. It's impossible for everyone to live equal life's, someone always misses out. If child labour was disallowed, the clothing industry would probably collapse. These children should have the right to work if they wish, and if their family is unable to provide income themselves. Most countries where child labour occurs are already too poor to provide things like education, health care etc. Someone needs to work.

  • To an extent

    If it is necessary for the family to utilize children to work. It somtimes may be justified. The main point need to be considered is whether the child labor will increase utility of the children itself or not. When children need to work to live, it should be allowed and no one can blame the company without supporting those children financially.

  • Hunger or Work, who are we to choose.

    Slave labor is obviously unacceptable, and can't be defended. But in places in the world were extreme poverty is real. Work provides a individual with a means to live. Voluntary child labor provides opportunity to put that person on a better track than the alternative of not working. Again in developed nations, we believe young should invest in education to do work that requires an education. But in other areas in the world, best preparation for work is actually work. America has a generation of youth that hasn't toil in hard labor. Work is as important as education. Education without application is a drain on society.

  • Jessica, A-level, W.Sussex, 15yrs old

    Child labour was ethical in many now developed countries (mainly in 19th century), when these countries developed and education became realistic labour laws changed.
    Also many families rely on the child's income to survive, if the income is the only thing keeping a family alive, is it ethical to employ the child? Yes, what is un-ethical is to then fire that child. In Nike factories, children still work but the company provides them with food and a free education, this is ethical.

  • In certain situations child labor is ethical

    As the son of a small business owner, I believe that as long as the child is reaping an adequate benefit from the labor, then child labor is ethical. I remember working in my father's candy factory and assisting with dipping chocolate-covered strawberries. We were allowed to eat the mistakes in exchange for cupping and weighing the good strawberries. Needless to say, I received adequate benefit from the exchange.

  • Children should be adequately paid and not forced to work.

    Child labor is ethical if they are being paid fair wages and are not being forced to unwillingly do labor. In places like China where they force children to work for horrible wages, it is not ethical to do such a thing. But, in some circumstances, child labor can be practiced ethically.

  • Child Labor is Unethical!

    Children have to work dangerous and tiring jobs, and they get paid little to no money. In the 18th/19th century, it was believed that child labor was a necessity for the workplace since children had smaller hands and could really get into the machines if they needed to. Child labor in today's world is equally as tiring, dangerous, and they get paid little to no money as well.

  • Child labor is unethical. Children should should start their life with wonderful experience to carry heir entire life.

    Children should start their life with wonderful experiences to carry for entire life. Not by working in company and exhausted in early age and spoil their health. It is not about develop or non develop country, all the countries should have such rules “Children age 5 – 17 should not work”. They are next generation of the world so we as parents have this responsibility to save, teach and guide them to deliver the moral value and good deeds for the world. Each child need good environment with love to pursuit their experience in the life.

  • I'm in the middle

    Personally I find child slavery wrong in that children are being mistreated, paid low wages, they are sold into it without a choice and children are faced with dangerous situations where 22,000 children die a year. However there are some cases where a child’s family is poor and their labour is necessary for their survival. They don’t have access to education and it can be expensive and some parents feel that what children will learn is irrelevant to the families and their everyday lives and futures. Child labour also perpetuates poverty this is due to the fact that they don’t have the opportunity to go to school so there is no chance to break free of poverty.

  • Strict no to child labor!

    Child labour cannot be tackled as a family issue only; it is a societal issue, a cultural issue, and a human rights issue. Put simply, child labour should not exist and no excuses should be made for it. Child labour in not a 'necessary evil'. Child labour is not just an issue for poor families; it is something that affects us all. Parents, employers, government officials, teachers, police and other community representatives should all be involved in providing the necessary conditions to ensure that children do not have to work. Families that depend on the income generated by their children should be supported and provision for the education of these children should be made. There is not point in removing a child from labour for them to be replaced by another. The cycle of poverty will never be broken if children continue to work.
    When children are no longer available for work, employers have no choice but to hire those who are available to them... Adults.

  • A Lost childhood is not okay!

    Work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development is not okay.
    But the thing that scare me the most. Even in a land like USA, you can find child labors.
    A land who spend 25$ million a year to eliminate child labor.

  • Prostitution? Begging? Porn taking?

    Are you to say that these are ethical and healthy forms of child labor that are mentally suitable for a girl of virtue and energy to have to handle? (usually 5-14) maybe even older than that? How would u feel having to sell yourself. To supply for your family is one thing but to be FORCED into something so empty is more than just a matter of money and beauty. It's being "used".

  • I think not

    Child labor is bad.
    If kids have the same human rights as any other then why should a human dedicate his time to work? Everybody is equal right? So people hire kids because they only have to pay a few rupees. Now think and be honest with yourself, is tricking kids and operating them really a good way to build? And if this is how child labor works, baking in the sun, misery, would you like to be in their position? Why should people work for others when they are in the most innocent phase of life, when their body isn't ready for the stuff they endure today. “

  • No to child labor

    Children are not competent enough to fight against unfair working conditions nor are they truly aware of them. This makes it easy for employers to take advantage of them. There is no way a kid will be treated with respect in the workforce. Let's leave the grueling workforce to adults and instead push our children towards education.

  • Child labor is not ethical.

    Children are not able to stand up against unfair work conditions in the way adults are. They wouldn't understand labor laws in the way adults do, and would be easily mistreated. Also, physically and mentally they aren't ready to enter the work force in the way that adults are. Children are too easily taken advantage of.
