Children working in cocoa industry increases 21%

According to Tulane University's Payson center, 

 "A report just released by the University of Tulane, commissioned by the US Department of Labour, estimates that there are more than 2.1 million child labourers in cocoa-growing across Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. This represents a 21% increase in the absolute number of child labourers in cocoa, and a 15.5% increase in the prevalence of cocoa-related child labour in cocoa-growing areas, between the selected baseline year of 2008/9 and 2013/4. "

Not good. The situation has gotten WORSE, not better since the the onset of the Harkin Engel Protocol.
