Negative effects of child labor and Growth of Prostitution

Title: Child labor and prostitution

Author: Carlos Quintanilla


Abstract: This article focuses on the negative effects of child labor, as reported by the international and domestic organizations. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) observes that the poverty, neglect and the struggle for survival have proliferated child labor in Central America. The International Labor Organization of the Permanent Economic Commission for Latin America (CEPAL) reveals that the child labor has increased to over 15 million working in Latin American, who are living in dangerous physical, emotional and unhealthy conditions. The reports highlights that half of the children working for poor salaries are aged between 6 and 14, while the girls working as maids, end up as prostitutes after suffering from sexual abuse at the hands of their employers.



  1. nice! i’m gonna make my own journal

    • All the best my dear…. Its really the need of the hour to deal with such social problems…. We, as writers, can at least make the people know the problems faced by child labour, so that the people can help them and governments can make some amendments or enactments to take care of them… Wish You All the Best…. Start your own journal… My support is always with you…

  4. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for newbie blog writers? I’d
    genuinely appreciate it.
