Annotation 6

"50 Boys Who Were Froced to Work at Factories in India are Freed."
New York Times. December 29,2006. pg A.9.

For the last two years 50 boys ranging from the ages 8 to 14 who worked 15 hours a day were freed by a local private organization. All of the boys come from poor families who needed the money to survive. The boys worked in an embroidery factory working with needles that would sometimes hurt them. While working the children were often abused and weren't allowed to see their family. Even with the jobs many of the boys were never paid and didn't have an education that they could go to.
