I just was reading about how the child actors in Slumdog Millionaire only got paid like $700 and $1200 and still live in poverty. I understand that it is much more than the annual adult salary where they live, but still I think it was cheap of the execs of Slumdog to try to get by with such a payment. We pay our child actors MUCH more than this, what harm comes from paying these kids more?
Yes, they paid for schooling but they used them in a movie which made big bucks and they could have paid a lot more.

They agreed to the payment before anyone realized the attraction and success... It's more than $2400
"In addition to their educational requirements, a fund is in place to meet their basic living costs, health care and any other emergencies. Furthermore, as an incentive for them to continue to attend school a substantial lump sum will be released to each child when they complete their studies. Taking into account all of the children’s circumstances we believe that this is the right course of action"
I bet there are families in Mumbai who would love to give their children this priceless opportunity. This allows the children to succeed and thrive without parents getting a hold of the money and using it in a way that would not benfit the children.
