Child labour in India

India is infamous for the millions of children forced to work. Bonded labour especially, whereby children (as well as adults) have to work to pay of debts incurred by parents of grandparents can keep families in dire poverty for generations. In this quarry children earn about forty euro cent a day. Labour is heavy, unsafe and unhealty. There is no insurance. The workers have to bear al costs of living themselves. Even a seemingly small debt of a hundred euro can be impossible to repay.
