They are paid very low wages and are also treated like slaves, such as cruelly punishing them for errors and straining them to work for long periods.

The Human Rights Watch observes, “In June 2007, 500 middle school children in the western territory of Sichuan were found actively in work for 14 hours in a factory in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, as part of their summer employment.

Economy Laos lost nine-tenths of their currency's value against the US dollar in 1997 during the Asian currency crisis. A report from the Asian Development Bank states that even if absolute poverty incidence has halved, the distribution of private household expenditures has become more unequal in Laos.
