World Day against Child Labour

The past few weeks, I have been researching the issue of child labour. Child labour is the employment of youth under the minimum age set by the government. They are usually made to do work that is dangerous and are paid very little. June 12th is the World Day against Child Labour and in honour of that, I would like encourage you to research child labour yourself and tell as many people about it as you can.

Some excellent resources:
Free the Children- Craig Kielburger(book)
Wikipedia's article on Child Labour
UNICEF article
