Illegal Child Labor in the United States: Prevalence and Characteristics.
Kruse, Douglas L.; Mahony, Douglas
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v54 n1 p17-40 Oct 2000
Although illegal employment of 15-17 year-olds has declined since the 1970s, 301,000 minors are employed illegally annually. Whites, males, and 15-year-olds are most likely to be illegally employed. Excessive hours and lower wages for illegal young workers are estimated to save employers $136 million per year. (SK)
