From war to sweatshop for Syria's child refugees

The Guardian reports on how many of Syria's children who have fled the conflict in their country, end up working in sweatshops in Turkey. The article contains a video and pictures showing the life of these young boys working in a sweatshop.  One of the young boys, Hamza, is a 13 year-old boy from Syria who, according to his boss, makes up to 400 shoes a day. As unacceptable as it is to have children working rather than studying, the alternative can be much worse, with many children being recruited as soldiers in their country's civil war.
