Study on child labour in automobile workshops of Peshawar, Pakistan
AbstractTo determine the characteristics of children working in car workshops in Peshawar, a descriptive survey was conducted from June to November 2005 of 200 boys [6-15 years] randomly selected from 32 workshops. A questionnaire was used to collect socioeconomic and work-related data. The majority of the boys had no or little education, had started work before the age of 10 years and earned < 700 rupees/month. Most of their fathers had little education and were in poorly paid jobs, unemployed or deceased. About 40% of the boys were engaged in mechanical work. Watery eyes [31%], chronic cough [29%] and diarrhoea [22%] were the commonest symptoms reported by the boys and 38% had had a major injury
