Transcript of Child Labor TOK Presentation
Dante says farming is hard work and he’d rather go to school. What is NOT considered child labor? Work that contributes to the mental and physical development of the child is considered positive. For example:
Assisting in family business Emotion plays these roles in justifying child labor because of the following... In Pakistan, child labor is “a fact of life”.
(Al Jazeera) It is the kind of job that is harmful to physical and mental development. Globally, the age range for child workers,
is 5-17 years old. 215 million children around the world are working. (goodweave) Liam Chato
TOK Presentation What is NOT considered child labor? What roles do emotion and reason play in justifying child labor? I always see children working in the Philippines. Child Labor is illegal in many countries yet this is one of the answers to poverty. Why did I choose this topic? Because of poverty and lack of social welfare, parents could freely let their children work. Children are being exposed to different type of jobs (i.e, factory work, prostitution) They are locked like animals and kept at ‘jail-like structure’ when they are not at work. (UNICEF) They are forced to become adults as they work for their family Reason plays these roles in justifying Child Labor because of the following benefits: 'Bondage Children' are child workers who are passed to employers, by their poor parents, in exchange of little amount of money or to repay debt. So if there’s a choice between education and starving or no education yet there’s some income, the parents might choose the latter. (Melnick) Low labor cost, increase profits. Reason plays these roles in not justifying Child Labor because of the following disadvantages: As children are kept out of school, they have limited knowledge of other fields of work. Bondage may also seem like slavery, as children are forced to work for a long period of time as the debt would never seem to be paid. (UNICEF) They would have to work with chemicals and pesticides. They have to work for hours and their physical state changes as their ‘growth is stunted’ (UNICEF) Conclusion: What roles do emotion and reason play in justifying child labor? Reason: Emotions: Child labor, to some extent is beneficial to the families and it will exist as long as poverty exists. Deductive reasoning
Their physical and mental development are affected by Child Labor. Child labor touches on our empathy, asks for sympathy and ties in to our perception Apathy and Stoicism Justified Not justified My opinion.... Seeing children working for money in certain environment is upsetting for me. If there are more children working in the family means more income. However, I also understand why the parents would let their children work for their family Why the audience needs to think about this topic.... If society could not find solutions to poverty, which again, is the main cause of Child Labor, Child Labor will continue. It affects children or teens all over the world when they should be studying or living their life like we are now. POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS: Provide ‘free’ education so that children could afford to go to school and stay in school. Companies or employers should not hire children
Governments should really adhere to the laws and give out punishments to employers hiring children YOU Companies could hire children BUT should let them work in safe environments and maybeset up schools for them.
“It (child labor) is inevitable” - Imam in Pakistan (Al Jazeera) Also helps the nation’s economy. For example, the 2010 World Cup. Pakistan, India, Thailand and China are the top exporters of footballs that were stitched by child workers. So far, 151 countries (out of 196) prohibits worst forms of Child Labor Should the parents of working children be accused or judged of irresponsible parenting? How does child labor changed over time? What is society's perception of children? Have to consider different cultures and economic situations Brazil Ecuador Morocco Vietnam Works Cited:
