Child labour.

Child labour, forbidden by law in Bangladesh, is part of a vicious cycle, with poverty as a main cause as well as a main consequence. Workers in many leather tanneries of Dhaka including children as young as 11, become ill because of exposure to hazardous chemicals and are injured in horrific workplace accidents, Human Rights Watch says in a report. The tanneries, which export hundreds of millions of dollars in leather for luxury goods throughout the world, spew pollutants into surrounding communities.
