 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The present book unveils many-sided realities of child employment in tobacco processing. Work with tobacco comes within the category of worst forms as defined by the international labour organizations. Our household survey in a poverty-stricken district in West Bengal brings to light the perpetuation of this hazardous occupation of underage children. Intergenerational transfer of low skill work has been found to be associated with perpetual poverty cycle. Food insecurity haunts these child labour households. Occupational trap syndrome is conspicuously present in the surveyed localities. Poverty and adult illiteracy have been found to be formidable factors on the supply side but the exploitative demand side arrangement prevalent in theses regions are equally responsible. This vicious cycle has to be broken apart and families have to be rescued from the trap. Diversification of employment through appropriate skill training for the adults and the expansion of quality schooling for the children are some of the steps for the elimination of this menace.
