The first point is child labor for fashion industries is a lose-lose situation, with globalization, several of the factories are in a race to the bottom. Most of the involved children in fashion production are overworked and exploited. The sad fact is that around 260 million kids are employed with these brands. Furthermore, many brands are not even aware that their factories use child labor. There are still around 168 billion child laborers around the world that are suffering from this issue but no one is moving to give them their simple rights including entertainment, education and sleep.
Parents are one of the causes for child labor especially illiterate parents. Some parents are not able to work so they force their children to work instead of them. Hence, children are more easily employed because they get less money paid than adults and they are easier to get abused. Other cause that is the seedbed of child labor and the biggest cause for child labor is Poverty. In some poor countries, the government doesn't help poor families by providing education, health care or find for them work to get money.
Have you ever thought about how it feels to be ripped out of the only place that you know as home? To get no explanation of why your parents just did not want you anymore?

If a child didn’t go to preschool they tend to start at a disadvantage to children who did but for poor families there weren’t any other options, until 1965. In 1965, 20% of the United States was considered “poor” and President Lyndon B. Johnson saw this statistic as a huge disgrace so he decided there had to be a change. On January 1, 1964, President Johnson gave his annual state of the union speech and during his speech he talked about turning the American society in a “great

“Our review revealed that there is little resesarch to support the effectivness of compulsory attendance laws in acheving these goals (of lowering the droupout rate)” (Schargel). Each day more and more students drop out of high school and there is no reasonable explanation to dropout of high school.

It costs United States taxpayers about $113 billion per year at the federal, state and local level; as a result, states and local governments absorb the bulk of the costs approximate $84 billion (The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on U.S. Taxpayers, 2011). It is a huge amount of money that can affect education systems because it is a part of education funding that supports local students educations such as scholarships and learning materials. When a government loses that money from illegal immigrants, the students will either lose their chances to get scholarships, and the education sources such as libraries and technologies for learning will not able to develop because of lack of money. In fact, the less quality of education systems affects students that they will have low performance. Moreover, it also has negative impacts on social services.

Due to the presence of child labor, millions of children’s rights are being taken away from them especially in the countries of China, Pakistan, and Nepal who should be working to abolish child labor.
The parents were the ones who sent them out for work. Why they had to do that was because they needed money. Even a few cents or few dollars was good enough to support the family. (Commission report pg23) This was what Angela wrote in her book that ‘children were at a particular stage in the family cycle where they were young and there were no breadwinners in the family to boost the family income’ (Angela V. John, pg118). However, after the report came out, the government took charge of being the agency for the children as it introduced compulsory education and set a minimum working age for the children.
