Child labor is still a problem in third-world countries. About 250 million children are in the workforce of developing countries, and about 24.7% of children are employed all over the world. Although many believe that it violates the rights and freedoms of children to be sewing soccer balls and weaving carpets instead of being outside and playing, others say that they must work in order to help feed their impoverished families. Most children work in agriculture, but many work in manufacturing, trade, or construction. Child labor is still a rampant all over the world.
