    Hi all
    I am doing some research on Child labour (the good and the bad-eliminating and etc..). Anyways a while back I read an article on how a soccer company which employed children was shut down and so the children were sold to prostitution by their parents because they had no other means of income. And now I can’t find the article and so wanted to know if you’ve read anything like this or have come across something similar to this? ..or can anyone shed some light on this?

    I don’t remember but the I think the company was in Sialkot Pakistan, or it could also be Nepal..YIKES..
    Thanks
    Malik

    What about family farms in the industrial world. Do you think child labor goes on there? I know it does.

    Not all child labor is bad. I think we have gotten too far away from work as a good thing. Kids in the industrial world fear and loathe the day they will have to provide for themselves. It is sad.

    We need to turn K-8's into little factories. That way your kid can go to school and draw a paycheck at the same time.
