Every day about 215 million children work. The majority stay at their jobs around the clock, only to be rewarded by a small sum of money. These children have no time to play, go to school, or enjoy pleasures that we take for granted as children. If you are a child that has to work to eat, the chances are you at risk for injuring yourself every day. I believe children should not be subjected to the pain of waking up and not knowing how they will continue on to the next day. Kids ought to have a fun childhood before having to start working, not to work until they 
can’t anymore.

In this art hexagon I utilized pictures of the currency of some countries that are prone to child labor such as the Chinese Yuan and the Mexican Peso. I have chosen bills with a low face value to depict the small amount of money kids that work receive. Pasted over the figures on the bills are photographs of suffering children, symbolizing these working kids.

I really liked how you used the currency to show what little amount kids would make and also put up pictures that showed the children's emotions towards working.

I liked how you used the children's faces. It was a really smart idea.

What an amazing unique idea to depict the global issue of child labor. You really spent time thinking this out. Excellent work!
