ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument in favor of using economic sanctions to address the problem of child labor. The author argues that boycotting products from nations permitting child exploitation will provide the incentive for companies to alter their child labor practices. Global statistics reflecting the use of child labor are presented and the failures of the U.S. and the international community to prevent child labor violations are addressed.
