Money is a way to sustain us in life. Money, for some, it defines our status quo. Money for others means to have just enough to get food on the table. Money comes in all values and has a different meaning to everyone. So what is so wrong about money these days?
It has come to the point where in certain countries like Bolivia, children as young as 10 years old, have to work to help support the household and it is on the verge of becoming legal. Children need time to grow and mature and they do that through play. But, with half the population being poor, there is no alternative but for them to work.
Child labor already exists in Bolivia, but this law will allow children to work under parental supervision and that the child attends school.
One way to look at this is to say that it is helping the economic crisis. Having multiple incomes come into the home, is a way of helping to pay for things and not have to rely on just one income.
Currently, sources pointed out that Bolivia is, “paying a per-child subsidy of $28 a year to families whose children attend school”, to help families out of poverty. While this is not even barely enough to some people, for countries like Bolivia and others, it is their only option.
