I won't blame them for this because the government watchdogs expected to enforce these laws are either being bribed to look the other way or some of the employees who should have reported the issues also tend to look the other way also. one of such is a recent occurrence of a company in Nigeria that employs and underage worker, only for him to be electrocuted in the company's premises leading to a whole lot of litigations.

If we look at the case of the underage that was employed only for him to be electrocuted, if not because of poverty that guy won't be there in the first place, he would be preparing for exams so that he can further his education.
