The article says about Dante and other child workers working for 7 hours a day for 3.50 dollars. Children usually stop going to school at about first grade to work and earn money for their families. Then the article says about the children working so long in the sun barefoot and and large hat as their only source of shade. Then the parents who beg for their children to work.
- Are the schools free?
- If the schools aren’t free, how can the parents afford school but not food?
I think that its the people’s problem that this happens. First it’s the child worker’s parents, for offering the owners their children. Second its the owners who accept the child workers. I don’t think the government’s fault that this is happening, because the government can’t see every alley, and they can’t control everything. Also, just because they are children doesn’t mean they deserve less. I see working in the sun for 7 hours with out shoes and a hat only big enough to give your face shade and earning 3.50 dollars as torture. The article has many information about child labor in the Philippines and their working enviorment. Overall, the article was fun to read and know about.
