What are the short and long term affects of child labor?
Working conditions that are safe and healthy for adults aren't safe and healthy for children. Risks may be greater for children at stages of development and may have long term effects. These factors include; Rapid skeletal growth, development of organs and tissue, greater risk of hearing loss, developing ability to assess risks, greater need for food and rest, higher chemical absorption risk, smaller size, and lower heat tolerance. An short term impact would include that the industries that used child labor were able to grow quickly, part of this was due to the low price for the child workers. Another would be that the children had to work in harsh and dangerous conditions, which could have impacted them greatly, mentally and physically.

What can be done or is being done about child labor?
To what extent has globalization played a role in causing child labor
The pressure of globalization has led to forced labor and child trafficking. The factors that led to child labor occurred on a global scale. These obstacles include global competition, free trade rules, and the structural adjustment policies attached to international development loans. As multinational corporations expand across the world, countries have to fight for jobs, investment, and industry. The fight for most of these resources sometimes slow child labor by encouraging government and corporations to seek lower costs by resisting international standards.

To what extent can globalization be used to solve child abuse?
There is a program that's directed towards child labor. The program is called IPEC: International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labor. IPEC's aim is to eliminate child labor worldwide, with the eradication of the worst forms on urgent priority. The IPEC was formed in 1992
Exploitation will only stop when policymakers in industrialization and developing world meet human-rights obligation and enforce the law. When companies take responsibility for their supply chains and develop strategies to ensure that their suppliers don't contribute to forced child labor and finally; when policymakers address the lack of opportunities, power, and education that allow individuals to get abused, forced into child labor.
