»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. Most nations have laws in place to attempt to prevent child labour practices, and United Nations has several international laws and treaties in place. But according to the new the risk analysis firm Maplecroft's child labour index for 2014, it is still alive and well.

Here are the top ten worst nations for child labour according to Maplecroft.
