Waste picking does seem to be an easy task, but there are considerable problems and issues involve with this type of child labor. The chemical and medicine wastes have a certain life span after which they become poisonous and touching them can leave those poisonous materials on hands, which can enter the body while eating. Moreover, there are contaminated injections or needles that are dumped and they can also be lethal if is exposed to the body by mistake. All these issues of health, nourishment, and behavior of children are proportional to the practice of child labor in those countries, which is a rising issue in the contemporary times.

There are many organizations working for children education and health in the rural areas, to raise the quality of standards of the unprivileged families and reduce the rate of children labor. However in the present scenario, it child labor stands as a massive problem which cannot be solved by the efforts of NGOs alone. The government in this respect has been ignorant and sluggish in pondering on the issue of child labor and finding remedies for it. This explains the reason that why this issue still exists in many underdeveloped countries, even after several types of research and census since governments are least focused in developing the rural population.

Problems identified in this research are the health and psychological issues involved in child labor and the causes of the growing rate of child labor in the world. A comparative study is done for three counties, which have a high rate of child labor, to understand that what factors lead to engaging children in labor work and why these factors have not been eradicated from the face of such countries. It has been observed that the industrial growth in the urban cities has increased the trend of child migration to the city areas for the sake of employment.

This shows the darker side of the industrial expansion in the world, and it can be considered as a fuel to child labor work. The study will focus on the child labor problem in India in particular as its huge population creates high scope for children engagement in the labor work. The comparative study on three international countries, other than India, will be used to research the present condition of the Indian labor market. Also, the policies and changes that have applied to the labor association in the recent as will be identified, which have caused an increase or decrease in the child labor rate of India.
