The Tragedy of Child Laborers in Iran
June 12 was World Day Against Child Labor. The 2022 theme of the world day called for increased investment in social protection systems and schemes to establish solid social protection floors and protect children from child labor. According to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, government social protection systems are essential to fight poverty and vulnerability and eradicate and prevent child labor.
