The Hidden Workforce

There’s the nature of child labour in all its hellish combinations.

One example is child slavery. It’s a subset of it. Child labour is estimated above 200,000,000 children. That’s 18 times the number of children in Canada as a whole. It’s ‘jaw dropping’.

The kids in child slavery are a much smaller number and going through some of the most severe forms of degradation, humiliation, abuse, and exploitation. They might not know better either.  But we do.

And that’s the point. If the world leaders don’t, and citizens don’t, do something about it, few others can or will.
