Description

Los Angeles Times reports on "a burgeoning child labor practice that ... exploits youngsters, even exposing them to fatal accidents." The story points to statistics showing that every day an estimated 50,000 minors, some as young as 8, peddle goods throughout the country. The report reveals that teen recruiters target low-income black and Latino neighborhoods, as well as schools, and rarely pay the hired children even a part of the promised wage.
