ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument against child labour. It is the author's opinion that child labour is wrong due to its infringement on a child's right to a safe and healthy development. The effects on child development of work common to child labour, including sex work, textile manufacture, and agricultural work, is discussed. The role of child labour in the global economy is examined with particular focus given to the culpability of industrialized and developing nations.
