WORK IS A MATTER FOR ADULT PEOPLE

WORLD DAY AGAINST CHILD LABOUR

  • WORK IS A MATTER FOR ADULT PEOPLE

Today is the World Day Against Child Labour and eradicating it is a commitment of society as a whole, which cannot remain indifferent to such a problem.

According to a report released by the National Ministry of Labour, child labour was reduced in Argentina from 7.8 to 3.4% between 2004 and 2012 due to the promotion of economic development, assistance programmes and the improvement in the distribution of wealth. The decrease was most noticed among children up to 13 years

According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), there are 14 million children workers in Latin America, who most of them are engaged in domestic work.
