Abstract:

"The report, "'They Bear All the Pain': Hazardous Child Labor in Afghanistan" documents how child workers work dangerous jobs in Afghanistan's carpet industry; as bonded labor in brick kilns; and as metal workers. They perform tasks that could result in illness, injury, or even death due to hazardous working conditions and poor enforcement of safety and health standards. Many children who work under those conditions combine the burdens of a job with school, or forego education altogether. Working compels many children in Afghanistan to leave school prematurely. Only half of children involved in child labor attend school"--Publisher's description.
