1/2/2010 Report
The incidence of child labour in Jamaica, as legally defined, is relatively low for developing countries. However, at least 11.6% of 15-17 year-olds are involved in economic activity, usually of a hazardous, low-wage character. This results from a disjuncture between the maximum age limit at which basic education is provided - Grade 9, or about age 16 - and the age of adulthood.
