Abolish Child labour

I came across this article today in the Hindu that says that the government has put an imperative to prohibit rastaurants / dhabas / shops etc to emply children below the age of 14.
The article reminded me of the many instances when one has to take services from these young kids.
Be it the railway stations, thebus stands, the hotels, restaurants, the cleaners, the grocery delivery kids etc etc ...
I seek Independence

What does one do about the multitude of street children across India who are not employed by any body but tak up selling artifacts at streets, fairs etc..
Of the rag pickers...

There needs to be more work done for sure.
