The Child Labor Education Project Today, approximately 215 million children, many as young as five, are involved in child labor around the globe. Child labor is work that harms children or keeps them from attending school. It involves work by children under conditions that are hazardous, illegal, or exploitive. The Child Labor Public Education Project of the University of Iowa Labor Center and Center for Human Rights provides educational workshops and materials on a range of issues regarding child labor in the U.S. and other countries: causes and consequences of child labor history of child labor in the U.S. effects of child labor on children’s health and workers’ rights and international issues such as workers’ rights, trade, and economic policies.

We are Nature Rainforest Animals Farm Worker Issues : National Farm Worker Ministry Agricultural work is hard work. In order to feed the country, an estimated 2-3 million farm workers labor in the fields across the United States, including handpicking the vast majority of fruit and vegetable crops produced here. In many cases these workers are young adults or even children; in all cases, farm workers are excluded from important national labor protections that other workers possess. The role of farm workers is one of the most vital jobs, and yet it’s also one of the most dangerous and least adequately compensated. For their demanding physical labor, farm workers earn, on average, between $12,500 to $14,999 a year for individuals and $17,500 to $19,999 for a family. In a movement to turn this system around, farm workers are organizing to demand a seat at the table with the people and institutions that have the ability to change their inhumane working and living conditions.
