Child Labor 1

Child Labor  1

Although nearly every country has passed laws and ratified international treaties banning the practice of child labor, there are still nearly two hundred million child laborers worldwide. Most of these children live in developing countries, working as many as sixteen hours a day and earning as little as five cents an hour. Citizens of the U.S., Germany, the U.K., Sweden, and Japan tend to promote child labor abuses by routinely purchasing products made by children working under abysmal conditions. This program addresses this issue by focusing on the child labor system in Pakistan, which has been labeled "the last vestige of slavery"; it includes excerpts from The Carpet, a documentary film by Swedish director Magnus Bergmar, as well as interviews with Ahmed Kamal, the former Ambassador from Pakistan, noted for his work at the United Nations, and Dr. Guido Bertolaso, the former Deputy Executive Director of UNICEF, and today is the Head of the Italian Civil Protection Department. 02/12DE JSCA 30 min.
