In Mexico, child labor is illegal, which means any child 17 or under cannot work. However, approximately 4 million out of 29 million children in Mexico perform a work of some kind. Article 123 of the Mexican Constitution prohibits use of the labor of anyone under the age of 14 and limits the working day for children between the ages of 14 and 16 to six hours.
