Mexico children shoulder state's labour woes

Estimated 300,000 children toil illegally in nation's fields, most helping their impoverished families.

    Around 300,000 children work illegally in the fields of Mexico, providing agricultural products for dinner tables across the globe.

    Although the government recently passed new labour laws to help crack down on child labour, authorities are finding it hard to prosecute offenders who are mostly poor farmers employing their own children.
