Poverty and lack of social security are the main factors that lead to child labor. The intensifying gap between the different income section of society r, the not so liberal economic policies are the leading causes which result in significant parts of the population out of employment and without basic needs. This deleteriously affects children more than any other group. The entry of multinational corporations into the industry without proper mechanisms to hold them accountable has led to the use of child labor. Lack of appropriate channelization of quality universal education has also contributed to children dropping out of school and entering the labor force. Significant distress is that the actual number of child laborers goes undiscovered. Laws that are meant to protect children from precarious labor are ineffective and not implemented correctly.
