Abstract:

In 1790 the first water-powered mill in America was run by children, some as young as 7 years old. They were paid pennies for a work day that might last more than 10 hours. As America grew, the children's plight grew worse. Exhausted by six-day work weeks and harsh conditions, millions of young workers had no time to play or go outdoors. They had no childhood. In time children and adults fought back, and the children went on strike to protest harsh conditions. Finally, during the last years of the Great Depression, the government took action, passing the Fair Labor Act.

Excellent addition to any library.

This is an excellent book on child labor laws and why they exist.  The pictures are excellent and tell the story in themselves.  The text is easy to read.  This would be an excellent addition to any library.
