M.Nagarjuna and Shantha Sinha,(2004) ‘Poverty Argument –In the Context of Elimination of Child Labour’.

The study contests the argument that poverty alone is the cause for child labour. It seeks to understand if, and to what extent, even in circumstances prevailing today, the economic factors influence parents’ decisions to send their children to work. In order to focus attention on those who are most likely to be affected by the limitations imposed by economic conditions, the sample that was surveyed involved only scheduled caste families. It shows that ‘poverty argument ‘is the cause for child labour and not poverty per se.
