Connecting the Dots #CTD – Poverty

Today’s Connecting the Dots #CTD – Poverty: More children work in agriculture than in any other industry in the world. In the US child farmworkers are excluded from many child labor laws. Why is this so? Who benefits from child labor? How does child labor affect families? How does it affect a child’s development? Is anyone addressing this issue? CFJC believes food is to nourish people, not to make a profit through exploitation. @ZamaHRW explores this issue in her recently published piece.
