Nobel Peace Laureate Satyarthi on the Global Campaign to End Child Labor

Feb.10 -- The United Nations has named 2021 the International Year for the Elimination of Child Labor. That's as the International Labor Organization estimates that 152 million children - almost one-in-ten of all minors worldwide - are forced to work. In our weekly equality segment, Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi discusses how the Covid-19 pandemic has worsened the situation. Kailash won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for his work in focusing attention on the exploitation of children for financial gain.
