Child Labor in Saudi Arabia

by Li Dongzheng
(Chofu, Japan)

Child labor is one of the most serious human rights issues of our time. Although child labor rates have been decreasing since 2006 at a much slower rate than previously, we still cannot ignore that large child worker populations have never been eliminated completely up to now.

Saudi Arabia has been dealing with this problem seriously, as it not only endangers the lives of children, but also impedes national and global economic progress.

In my opinion, the main causes of child labor are poverty, the lack of education, and industrialization and modernization of today's countries. And social patterns and cultural traditions such as gender discrimination lead to some of the child labor problems as well.

But, we all know that a country's economy should never depend on child labor. So I think we should pay much attention to child labor in Saudi Arabia!
