Labor Day is celebrated on 1st May every year. Labor Day has its origins in the labor union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest.
In our country Labors are working 24 hours. Unluckily, in our country ‘Pakistan’ 1st may is not considered a Labor day and people are much cruel with labor. It really hurts me to say that child Labor, considered to be one of the core issues of Pakistan, is being neglected by the government. However, Children are forced in labor due to certain circumstances. Such as Factories, workshops, petrol stations, hotels, houses serve as a place of these deprived children to waste their most precious years of their lives in which they could seek education.
Moreover, The ratio of child Labors are increasing day by day, According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), there are approximately 250 million children around the world, from the age of five to 14, who are now working as Laborers. They have neither proper diet, nor the good environment. They are working under the worst conditions.
Due to, these problems the children in Pakistan endure extreme physical and mental torture. Without a doubt, they work hard and struggle for the basic needs of life like education, clothes, and shelter.
The only way to reduce child labor is to provide them good education. As a result, the government and the authorities are requested to solve this issue and as well as the right of good education must be given to these children by the Government of Pakistan.
