Jamaica Social Security Minister Dr. Ferguson said an estimated 16,240 children were involved in child labour
Minister of Labour and Social Security Dr. Fenton Ferguson says tougher anti-child labour laws, increased opportunities for schooling and public awareness form part of the answer for the elimination of child labour in the country.
“If children can go to school and stay in school, their chances of getting proper jobs to care for their families’ increase, and if there are tough anti-child labour laws, workplaces will be safer, proper wages will be guaranteed and children will not be taken advantage of,” he said.
Dr. Ferguson said an estimated 16,240 children in Jamaica were involved in child labour.
