La pobreza ha sido catalogada como la principal causa de trabajo infantil. Los padres de los hogares más pobres deben recurrir al trabajo de sus hijos como única alternativa para sobrevivir y alcanzar el nivel de consumo de subsistencia. Bajo esta perspectiva, se pensaría que a mayores niveles de riqueza del hogar, menor va a ser el tiempo que el hijo trabaja; por lo que la relación entre riqueza y trabajo infantil se presumiría monótona decreciente. No obstante, diversos trabajos han analizado esta relación, llegando a resultados importantes que sugieren que esta relación no es tan simple como parece.
