In I&S I learned and researched about the child labor in The UK. The task for this unit was to debate about should we support/not support child labor. I was in the support group and I did the finishing argument of my group’s debate.
What do you want people to know about child labor ?
Child Labor happened back in the late 1700’s and at that time children at the age of 7+ starts working. They worked in a lot of places such as textile factories, farms and a lot more places. All this work was dangerous for them because some children need to carry heavy objects. Some children needs to crawl under working machines. All this work is very dangerous for them. They need to work for a really long time. It could start from 5am and could last until 12pm. From all the hard work they did, they weren’t paid as much as they should have received. Sometimes, they didn’t even get paid which is very sad for them because they work really hard. This is also a very risky job of them and some children were crashed till death caused by the machines. That was in Britain but nowadays child labor is still continuing in a lot of developing countries and this is very dangerous and caused a lot of health disease.
