Skilled or unskilled, an all-adult labor force in Pakistan does exist in the sectors of agriculture, industries and services. Regardless of how implementation and enforcementis carried out in Pakistan, the labor force functions under the rules of the labor policy andall aspects are governed through various legislation that came into being from time totime.Then why do we continue to use children as part of this labor force and despite knowingthe fact that it is the ethically and morally wrong thing to do, why do we close our eyesand not give it the priority it silently screams for?It is acknowledged that life in Pakistan is very different for the masses. Unemploymentand price instability wreck havoc in the life of the common man. But why should thechildren suffer and be deprived of the time they deserve to spend in school and to learnabout life and not get shoved into main stream practical life with forcefulness?Despite nodding to the demands of ILO, UNICEF and other world bodies whichaggressively insist Pakistan to eliminate child labor, the misery continues to exist andflourish. Is it just poverty and lack of education that serves as the barrier or does thepsyche of the Pakistani nation needs to be re-engineered? Is there something wrong withthe culture of Pakistan that has altered beyond recognition or have the traditions evolvedto the extent of fueling selfish mindsets?There are stories however, which motivate and rejuvenate the spirit, such as the Sialkotsuccess story but approximately 10 million child laborers are still out there in Pakistan.This paper attempts to connect the dots. They do connect but it appears that the system isgoing in round circles basically due to lack of sheer will. The problem has beenidentified. The knowledge to solve it is there. Why the waiting game then?
