The Indian Police found 200 children to work in a tile manufacturing industry in Telangana, India. Μost of them are younger than 14 years old. The number of child labor amounts to 5,7 million in India and to 168 million worldwide accounting to the ILO.
The scourge of child labour persists in many countries where children’s human rights are violated. The bourgeoisie, taking advantage of the miserable living conditions of the children, forces them to work as cheap workforce. The WFTU struggles against the inhuman crime of child labor and demands the forming of conditions so that the states can protect these children and cover their main needs.
