"Gaza Joy" But in Israel It's Child Abuse

The issue of the under-age labor force in agriculture and related activities is problematic.

Israel is accused of exploitation. However, the Palestinian Authority is als accused:

In 2016, the Palestinian Authority made a minimal advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor in the areas of the West Bank under its control. The Palestinian Authority took steps to enforce child labor laws and improve coordination among government agencies in their work to address child labor, including its worst forms. However, children in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip engage in the worst forms of child labor, including in construction and illicit activities. The legal framework does not criminally prohibit all elements of child trafficking. In addition, programs to prevent or eliminate child labor in agriculture and street work are insufficient.

Human Rights Watch got involved but its claims were denied

But, seemingly, for the IRCC, there is joy in labor.
