The Causes of Child Labour


These are various underlying causes that are prevalent behind this slavery practice.


Child Abuse


An example is the child labourers that 90 percent of workers employed in hazarous cracker industry are chilodren.


Exploitative Employers


The employers pay less wages and no leave is allowed .



  • Poor financial background of parents
  • Parents in the hope of earning money and repaying loans normally sends their children to work.
  • Girl child labourers have no choice, they are at risk of being exploited sexually . Apathy of the society people still want such kids as domestic helpers for law wages.
