I WOULD like to invite the attention of the authorities concerned towards child labour in Pakistan. It is equally frustrating that child labour, considered to be one of the core issues of Pakistan, is being neglected by the government.
Hence, the rate of child labour has perked up to a large amount.
According to the national child labor survey, approximately 3.3 million children below 14 years are working as a labour in Pakistan. This includes both boys and girls — boys form 73 pc and the girls 27 pc of the child labour.
This scenario depicts how moderate Pakistani parents are letting their children to work as labourers in order to earn money and survive in this world.
As a result, the majority of children works overtime for Rs 50 to Rs100, which seems a matter of grave concern. What is required is that the government must take a step to solve this issue.
