Bangladesh is the country with the highest population density on the planet, with 160 million people on 147,000 square kilometers of land. According to statistics from UNESCO, Bangladesh has about one million child labourers between the ages of 10 and 14 and this figure is terrible.
In Bangladesh, the reasons for the proliferation of child labor are complex. Because of poverty, many parents have no way to prevent children from going to work. Because of the large number of child laborers, the factory hired a large number of child laborers to save costs.
The labor intensity of these child laborers is similar to that of adults, but the poor income is only one tenth of that of adults. The monthly salary is about seven dollars per person.
Many children in the factory are constantly working all day. Even if they are tired, they have to insist on it. They dare not to be lazy or neglect. Otherwise, they will be beaten by overseers.
There is a silver pot factory in the old part of Dhaka where the child laborers are under great work pressure. It is not only a heavy task but also very dangerous. However, the poor salary is only three dollars a week.
The poor child became a child laborer early because of family poverty, he lost his right hand in an accident.
Even in child labor, gender issues also exist, and girls have fewer opportunities to recruit than boys.
This seemingly very weak boy is smashing bricks under the sun, and his family needs his income.
These child laborers work in a dusty environment, but they do not have any preventive measures.
The barefoot children in the brick factory use the top of the head to transport bricks ,they carry a thousand bricks to earn a dollar.
The owner of the textile factory was assaulting a 12-year-old child labourers who worked ten hours a day to earn a dollar.
As early as 1992, Bangladesh had already proposed to prohibit illegal employment of child labor regulations.

The author used a lens to record a 12-year-old boy who was beaten by sewing a T-shirt too slow. This picture has caused widespread concern and discussion in the international community. This has strengthened the author’s in-depth investigation to reveal its confidence. ”
