kids workers in a developing country

We discussed the first part of child labors at previous post (Is it Norm to Hire Underage Workers in Developing Countries? - part 1).

Then, we continue with “pros and cons,” where the school dropout teenagers lead to street prostitution, drug abuse and gang crime.

On the other hand, the working teenagers may also increase family income who live in severe poverty.

Thus, it is ethical decision to have underage employees in some points. The decision is supported by local authority, and norm for society.

Due to high rate of unemployment, poverty and teenager’s crime, it is ethical decision to accept underage employee.

However, in normal situation that Apple should follow the rule to reject underage employees. 


Kids should go to school

Let’s give the opportunity for teenagers to complete their formal education, and to acquire specific skill to pursue their career in life. In many cases, underage employee receives unfair salary and child abuse treatments.

The company always face with dilemma in many cases, especially when opens the new production factories in developing countries.

If the company follow the rules (international law), it found the worse for society wellbeing. If company breaks the law, not mean will be better and improve the situation.

In respect to underage employees, yes, company could alleviate the income of poverty families who live surround or nearby.

However, the teenagers have no opportunity to improve their skill and knowledge if they work at full time.

  5. I don't think these children are hired to alleviate poverty. An underage employee does not receive a competitive wage. Follow the money...

  7. I think these children should go to school before they go out to work. I'm sure they don't receive the proper wages/working conditions. A good education, hopefully, would due more to take them out of the poverty around them.

  15. Important question. And global corporations are complicit - it keeps labor prices down. So there's no pretending child labor laws even in one's own country solve the problem. As with so many problems, poverty is the enemy. Until you solve poverty - and it can be done - the other answers will never be simple.
