Child labourers reject Bolivia proposal

Government plan to raise minimum employment age met with scepticism by many of country's 800,000 underage workers.

    Bolivia has an estimated 800,000 child workers across the country and in the capital La Paz. But when the government tried to raise the minimum employment age, many children protested. The child labourers said they should have the right to work, but in better conditions.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports from La Paz.
