ChăldFund. International AMERICANS' VIEWS OF CHILD LABOR WORLD AROUND THE WORLD The cost of child labor is TREMENDOUS. Children forced to work from A YOUNG AGE are at great Child labor also keeps children from attending physical risk, often working in school, which contributes EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS to sustaining the CONDITIONS. GENERATIONAL CYCLE OF POVERTY. A new survey conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs on behalf of ChildFund International reveals Americans' attitudes toward child labor around the world. HERE ARE THE NUMBERS YOU NEED TO KNOW: 150 MILI ION There are 150 million children aged 5-14 engaged in child labor worldwide. Only 1% of Americans estimated this number correctly. 1% Source: UNICEF 73% OF AMERICANS POLLED GUESSED THERE ARE FEWER THAN 1 MILLION CHILDREN INVOLVED IN CHILD LABOR. More than ¾ of Americans are willing 3/4 to change their shopping habits to respond to the use of child labor. 55 34% Americans are willing to spend on average 34% more on clothing that is not made by children. 55% of Americans %$4 would spend more for clothing produced without child labor. C6 These survey findings provide telling insight into Americans' attitudes about child labor and should help companies understand that they make economic choices over moral ones. I believe that American consumers will become increasingly educated about the source of the products they purchase and begin making more knowledgeable and ethically driven buying decisions. - Anne Lynam Goddard, President & CEO, ChildFund International ChildFund works in 30 countries around the world to help children and families break free from poverty.
