They began work at 5:30 and quit at 7 at night. Children six years old going home to lie on a straw pallet until time to resume work the next morning! I have seen the hair torn out of their heads by the machinery, their scalps torn off, and yet not a single tear was shed, while the poodle dogs were loved and caressed and carried to the seashore. ― Mary Harris Jones
The event will be attended by over 1,500 representatives of governments, employers and workers from all over the world. Over three days, the delegates will discuss ways of consolidating joint efforts to accelerate the eradication of child labour worldwide. They will participate in technical discussions and exchange experiences and good practices around nine central topics.
