Cambodian Children’s Salt Field Ordeal

This article provides us with a sense regarding the horrible conditions in which Cambodian children have to work. It specifically points out the salt fields, a place where it is difficult for adults to work, is completely unimaginable for children. The International Labor Organization estimates that 1.5 million children are working in Cambodia, which is approximately a quarter of the child population.

The major concern is that working so strenuously inhibits children from doing what they should be doing. For example, Roh, a child laborer, only attended school for two years, but doesn’t have time because of his job in the salt fields. Even the wealthiest families encourage their children to work while only attending one hour of school each day.
The UN Minimum Age convention mandates that the youngest age for “light work” should be 13, and other forms of child labor is 15. The International Labor Organization believes that salt field work is not considered “light work,” and they are working towards eliminating child labor in Cambodia.
