Child labour shall not be used
168 million children work to support their families, missing out on education and often damaging their health. This reinforces the cycle of poverty.
Living vages are paid
Roughly half the world‘s population still lives on two dollars a day. If people can't feed their families on an adults vage they may send their children to work.
Working hours are now excessive
Long working hours are the norm for most of the world's workers. This damages peoples health and undermines family life.
No discrimination is practised
