Child Labor: Worst Forms

Worst forms of child labour

“Of the children in child labour, some 115 million are engaged in ‘hazardous work,’ otherwise known as the worst forms of child labour (ILO, 2010).  This is work that irreversibly threatens children’s health and development, through, for example, exposure to dangerous machinery or toxic substances, and may even endanger their lives. The worst forms of child labour also include the 8.4 million children in slavery and slavery-like practices, who are also subject to exploitation by others, and are the priority for us all to address.” (Anti-Slavery.org)
