Was all kinds of child labour bad?

A Young CEO of Nalli says:

"Child labour was a big part of this industry especially when it comes to contrast border (Korvai) sarees? How has that situation changed?
At least in Kancheepuram it has gone away after the government abolished child labour. Contrast border sarees that are in the market now are not (perfect), there is some bleeding (of colours). And the reason is if you want something that perfect, you need nimble hands, which means only children can do it. Previously, children used to help out their parents. Now they don’t and you will not see that product on our shelves."

Note the point!!
