I am writing you for an assignment on behalf of an issue I think needs to be addressed; Whooping Cough, also known as Pertussis. This issue is important and needs attention because many kids and babies die from whooping cough each year. If parents don’t get their children vaccinated they could get whooping cough and get very sick or pass it on to other children who could get sick. If small children or infants get whooping cough they could die because they don’t have as strong immune systems; same with elderly people. I care about this because it is very sad to see kids die and the percentage of deaths per year could rise.
There are a lot of toddlers being abused in illegal daycares. Some of them are badly injured and the others are dead because of nannies’ brutal act. Thus, there are many reasons for these tragic accidents which happen every year. The first reason is public daycares are having an oversupply of kids. Families who have toddlers living in the big city or the capital are having difficulty in finding public daycares, especially families with low income or don’t have city household.
Abuse is one of the most common factors that come with child labor. The common types of abuse that go with child labor are prostitution, rape, human trafficking, and assault. Imagine children constantly getting abused because they are not working fast enough and getting punished for it. Children are getting abused as time is passing right now because of something they didn 't choose. Children don 't choose to work, they do it because they are forced to and have no other options in their life.
According to Mother Jones, child labor was something so miserable and heart tearing. Mother Jones states, “Tiny babies of six years old with faces of sixty did an eight-hour shift for ten cents a day”. She witnessed all these poor children work every day and go home exhausted and drained. They had to work in horrible conditions, managers had no sympathy for the poor little children some would get hurt and others would die from illnesses. Jones states, “Often their hands were crushed.
We all have different views of the world that we live in, and we all have our stories to tell. But for the millions of kids that are being captured and sold to factories around the world, telling a story about their life would be an impossible thing to do. Unexpectedly, most cases when children are found working in some sort of unimaginable field, they are working to help their family out of poverty. With the income of only $15 a month, they suffered severed beatings forming unrepairable injuries and neglect leading to physical and emotional damage. Child labor happens for many reasons, being stolen, turned into a slave and poverty are the main reasons.
Her humble life began in one of the most dreadful backgrounds. She had to tussle through abuse, poverty and negative criticism in order to be the Oprah Winfrey we know and love today. Due to being born in a rural area in Mississippi to a teenage mother, Oprah was both physically and sexually abused. This caused her to run away from home and soon after led to the pregnancy of her baby, who unfortunately passed away after birth. In fact, Oprah had to overcome many challenges and obstacles during childhood.
She is denied to go to school, because according to her stepfather, she is ‘too dumb to keep going to school’ (CP 9). She is repeatedly raped by him and becomes pregnant twice, but the babies are taken away from her. Celie becomes a mother of two children born of incestuous union but they are sold by Alphonso for monetary benefit. Celie’s life is the representation of the female slaves whose children were forcefully taken away by the slave masters who enjoyed the financial gain by selling children. Celie mingles her physical suffering with the psychological torture through many letters that she writes to God and her sister.
This psychological damage stays with them for the rest of their lives as they have seen terrible things and have been forced into doing many unimaginable things. A lot of these children have missed out on school for many years and without an education they will go back to the rebel groups, just so that they can get food. These children need to be reunited with their families to try and get some stability back into their lives. Unfortunately, many girls who get raped by these rebels do not get accepted back into their families and their communities as they are seen to have shamed their families. Females are used to being raped and being a single mum and it is vital that these girls get given the education and counseling to help them get back into society.
In 1865, the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution ended the institution of slavery. After 152 years modern day slavery still exists and has evolved under a different appearance and known as “Human Trafficking” in today’s society and it still harms people all around the world .From the appearance of the labor, slavery has been an issue because it forces humans to work under bad conditions. Each year, thousands of people are trafficked across borders or internally, and exploited for cheap labor or sexual services. People are forced to work in factories, domestic work and agriculture. Children are taken away from their school life, education and used as soldiers, and forced in marriage.
It gets worse. Children are doing hazardous work in dangerous or unhealthy environment. This could result in in children being injured or even killed. This same article from ILO states, “Hazardous child labour is the largest category of worst forms of child labour with an estimated 85 million children, ages 5-17, working in these dangerous conditions.” In addition, “ worldwide the ILO estimates 22,000 children are killed at work each year.” Consequently, hazardous work affects children more strongly than adults. It can result in lack of safety, and health problems can often last a lot longer.
When they arrive they find themselves being victims of human trafficking. They are afraid to speak or ask for help because their captives have threatened them. These girls are abused physically, sexually and verbally. Human trafficking is the number one crime in America after drug trafficking and there are 50 thousand cases of slavery a year. The third story we saw was the awful working conditions children in other countries are put through.
Reflection: These poems belongs to a topic which is quite devastating in most ways.This thing causes lots of people to die,to end their pain called life.This traumizing event is called sucicide.Suciside is a very hard thing for an adult to go through but imagine a child because one in every one hundred thousand kids think of sucicide or actually does it but when you are a teenager the risk goes up by quite a bit.Seven out of one hundred thousand kids fall under the influence of this epidemic but it gets even worse when your a young adult it becomes 12.7 percentage of people also have it but sadly these aren 't the ones who recover sadly these are the people who have tried or have ended their pain. These peoms represent how hard it is and
An examples child labor is the children working the tobacco field were they have to were trash bags to protect themselves. Another one are kids working in the coal mines were they get all dirty and a lot of their backs hurt because they have bend down the entire time. Child labor is a cruel and bad thing to do because in some states there are laws about it and you could go to jail so it is better that you don 't do it. The only reason that I chose this one to get $300,000 instead of $600,000 because the food is something that we need and with out the food safety then no one would know about it. They would have to keep all the exits clear give clean water and have bathroom
In Haiti, human trafficking has been in existence for a long time. However, the country encountered a disastrous earthquake that physically and emotionally impacted Haitians. Many families became helpless, nowhere to turn, and lost their valuable possessions. People were desperate for money to fulfill their want with daily necessities because of the loss they suffered. This clearly increased the act of human trafficking among children.
Struggling for survival in Somalia. A country living with children on its streets is a country with no love for itself. Thousands of children in Somalia are left homeless with no parents to look after them because they were either lost in war or have gotten really sick due to the outbreak of various diseases. It is a terrible thing that the country doesn’t have a stabilized government to go to for help and that children are left to figure out their way of survival on their own. It hurts my heart that the children here are exposed to incredibly high levels of crime throughout their daily lives.
