Description

If you are a parent or person that is concerned about the welfare of children, you may be interested in some of these global statistics presented in this new reference about unfavorable child labor practices taking place around the world. According to this publication, “Sweat & Toil:, 2018 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor”, there are approximately 152 million boys and girls ages 5 to 17 engaged in child labor around the world. This report states that half of these children are toiling in hazardous work that endangers their safety, health, and moral development.

 For over 25 years, the U.S. Government, has financially supported combatting child and adult labor from the ravages of labor exploitation. Achieving the elimination of all forms of modern day slavery, including child labor practices, can only happen by the partnering of governments, the private sector, and international non-profits. Collaboration is essential to achieving this goal. All sectors of the global society must commit to do their part to address child labor and forced labor. 

Some tactics covered to improve child labor practices worldwide include:

Creating and adopting universal labor standards and national legislation laws within countries in efforts to combat child labor

Enforcement of these labor standards, policy frameworks, and laws

Promoting quality education for children

Implementing social protection programs

And more

The appendix within this reference includes an acronyms and abbreviations listing, definitions related to child labor, International Labor Organization (ILO) conventions related to child labor, guidance to learn how to read a country profile, country assessment criteria, laws and ratifications by country, and more.

By reading this resource, it may will help you build apprentices and other workforce development programs within your industry to help youth gain the skills they may need for employment.
