Child Labor is Bad
Look at the kid, see what they did!
All across the US, children as young as 6 years old were sent to factories to make money for their families. Although the children were making money, the conditions for the work was horrible. They had to endure long hours, low pay, and extremely dangerous working conditions. Look at some of these pictures to get just a glimpse of this horror.
