»10 items «
Child labour is generally accepted to be bad. Aside from being hazardous to individuals not yet mentally and physically developed, it also often correlates with not being able to attain an education, leading to increased risk of poverty over the course of their life.

But according to the new the risk analysis firm Maplecroft's child labour index for 2014, it is still alive and well.
