‘I need no job’ by Stop Child Labour

According to statistics on Stop Child Labour‘s website, the International Labour Organisation estimates that there are more than 215,000,000 children who are working – 60% of these work in agriculture while 7.5% work in heavy industry.

Stop Child Labour believes that ‘school is the best place to work’.  From our end as consumers, we should actively avoid products manufactured by companies who we suspect may be using child labour practices, as mentioned here.
