Child labour is a serious socio-economic issue and has been a topic of wider debate both in the developed and poor countries. Due to the moral concern associated with the problem some opine that child labour should be banned. However, it is found that families with very low income have no option but to send their children to do hard works. One such example is brick fields where migrant, poor workers from Bihar have to toil with their children in a very harsh and uncongenial work atmosphere. In this study an attempt has been made to gauge the problem of child labour in the brick fields of West Bengal.
