This article explains how children are slaves.

Did you know that there are 250 million children forced to work?  Some of the children work in agriculture, domestic work, restaurants, street sellers and even prostitution.  5% of children are forced to work in export oriented industries.  For example, 5% of children work at manufacturing and 5% work at mining.  Asia has the highest percent of children that work in export industries.  For example, children that are forced to work in Asia work in carpet industries, shoe industries, mining, gem polishing, food processing and furniture making.
