Sunday, June 12th, 2016, marked the fourteenth annual World Day Against Child Labor. According to the International Labour Organization, there are still 168 million children in today's workforce. This year, the children of Bangladesh's utensil factories were brought into the spotlight.

These young boys, all under the age of 12, work in Bangladesh's capital Dhaka for less than $5 a week. In 2014, the average Bangladesh income was $1,086.8.
