Scope:

First, brief information is given about Crimea. Then, the reasons underlying increased child labour in the region probed into and change of regime and collapse of socialism have been focused on as one of the most important causes. The following section compares the past and present situation. The effects of the collapse of social state in time, and removal of social security opportunities for miserable and poor people with the new free regime are argued. Besides, the subsequent paragraphs discuss in which jobs the children in Crimea are working at.

An Excerpt from the Article:

Here, it is time to touch on the issue of social security. If the child is working, this generally shows the family’s helplessness. The child is either in a family with too many children, or the father or mother is not working (may be unemployed, patient); or there is an alcoholic person in the family etc. The list may be extended. However, as far as we could see, these are generally families with low income, and in need of social aid. There was a very strong social security system during the time of the Soviet Union. (p.9)
