Child labour

rickshaw-pusshers

Bangladesh is a developing country with majority of its population being   engaged in some form of labour with children forming a sizeable portion of the informal labour force. At an age when these children should be attending school, they are involved in the struggle for survival. They take on the responsibilities of the family at an early age. As a result, they enter into many hazardous jobs, without any hesitation. In sylhet I identify large number of child labour are working to rickshaw pushers to their income. However, they do not have minimum wage rather than older peoples. They earned per day 80-100 tk(BD) . It can be stated that despite the discourse and debate on child labour and its elimination there is not enough initiatives either in the government or non-government sector to combat it. The interventions are far from being adequate.
