Child labour rises globally for the first time in decades

 

 --

Childlabour has risen for the first time in 20 years, the UnitedNations said on Thursday, with one in 10 children in work worldwide and millions more at risk due to COVID-19. 

The number of child labourers has increased to 160 million from 152 million in 2016, with the greatest rise in Africa due to population growth, crises and poverty, said the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the U.N. Children's Fund (UNICEF).
