Child Labor in Bolivia

Most nations have laws that prohibit child labor. Yet throughout the world, children in large numbers can be seen toiling in sweatshops, hauling concrete, tilling fields, plucking garbage or peddling shoes. The International Labor Organization estimates that 80 per cent of the world's working children are classified "unpaid family workers".
