The Department of Labor’s 2006 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor

Other Titles

Abstract

[Excerpt] In its sixth year, USDOL’s Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor provides new and updated information on the incidence and nature of child labor, relevant laws and enforcement, and programs and policies in place to address exploitive child labor in 141 countries and territories. In order to work towards the ILO’s global goal of eliminating the worst forms of child labor by 2016, the international community and trade beneficiary countries must push forward in addressing the key challenges that keep or make children vulnerable to exploitive work. Controlling and eliminating the spread of HIV/AIDS; increasing opportunities for youth employment; investing in rural development; and encouraging trade and economic growth will do much to stimulate an even more rapid decline in the incidence of working children. It is our hope that this report will serve as one more tool in the fight to address the worst forms of child labor and will encourage U.S. trading partners to redouble their efforts to combat child labor.
