Yesterday I saw these 3 boys at a construction site and my heart broke because I am certain that they are not up to 15 years old. As a child rights advocate these kinds of scenarios always leave me in a dilemma because I never know if I should complain to the boss because he’s encouraging child labor or thank him for giving the children the job because I know that they need the money.
