Bolivia legalizes child labor for kids from age 10

A boy helps his older siblings to wash a car in a street of La Paz on May 7, 2014Bolivia passed a law Thursday authorizing children to work from age 10, saying the rule is necessary due to realities in the impoverished country where kids join the labor market prematurely. The reduced legal limit has come under fire from critics who said it opens the door to allowing more children to work from a younger age. The International Labor Organization is investigating the law, amid fears it breached global rules. Vice President Alvaro Garcia signed the measure into law at the Quemado presidential palace in the absence of President Evo Morales, who was traveling to Brazil.
