Children there are forced to work 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. They work for a handful of food, and not even enough money for an evening meal. These children are as young as 5 or 6!!!

Children under 16 cannot work. However, there are no age limits on farming. There are a lot of immigrant children in America being forced to work for 8 hours a day for much less than minimum wage. Immigrants are often forged into paying fees that quickly leave them in debt. They are then forced to work to pay off the debt. So, before you say 'Murica! Land of the free... Think again
