Consumer power against unfair labour practices


WORKERS are generally exposed to numerous risks since every single activity, including basic day-to-day tasks, has some level of exposure. But those who are forced into certain labour practices, including child labour, are more vulnerable.

Alarmingly, individuals between 15 and 24 years of age constitute 15% of the global labour force of 541 million young workers, according to the International Labour Organization’s statistics. Of this, 37 million youths aged between 15 and 17 are involved in hazardous labour activities.
