Conclusion/ Final thoughts

In conclusion I believe that Child Labor is never good. Even if the conditions are improving the work is unfair and unjust. The children are earning about three cents per hour and because the money is ow they wear the same dirty clothes most days. Some youths are taken away from there family and then being beaten by there boss. The children do learn skills but sometimes those skills can hurt the child. Along with that. The children are servants who serve food but, do not get any of their own to eat. In Haiti between 110,00 and 250,000 work as a child laborer. The kids are part of the economy but, they have no say in it. Over all the children are striped away rm there child hood and forced to work in horrible places with no pay and have no rights.
