WASHINGTON, October 1Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao announced the award of more than $58 million in fiscal year 2008 grants to combat hazardous and exploitive child labor in countries around the world. Since 1995, Congress has appropriated approximately $660 million to the Department of Labor to support efforts to combat exploitive child labor internationally. As a result of that funding, the department has succeeded in rescuing nearly one and a half million children from exploitive child labor.
