child labor

Products the Philippines produces that use child labor

The Philippines currently produces 12 products that employ child labor and ignominiously occupies a place in the top 10 list of countries that put children to work.

The products, according to this:

  1. Bananas
  2. Coconuts
  3. Corn
  4. Fashion Accessories
  5. Gold
  6. Hogs
  7. Pornography (!??!)
  8. Pryotechnics
  9. Rice
  10. Rubber
  11. Sugarcane
  12. Tobacco

What’s glaringly missing from that list are those who are ‘employed’ as maids, servants, and those who have had to find means fend for themselves due to absent or unemployed parents.
