Create a national minimum wage in India.

The preciousness of childhood resonates with everyone, but unfortunately today some children don't have the freedom to experience a childhood because they are forced into spending their time working to earn a living. In a developing country like India poverty is the root of child labor, so it can be safely said that as long as poverty exists child labor will exist in India. However, it is necessary for this social injustice to be be terminated from society and we can start working towards eradicating this injustice by helping elevate the state of the poor in India. By creating a national minimum wage, we can help everyone earn enough money to support themselves and their family, this way people would not have to force their children into working instead of studying. Also, this mindset that employing children is cheaper and so a better option than employing adults will hopefully come to an end.
