Coal Mine Expose
Boys around the age of 12 should be going to school, don't you think?
In Pennsylvania, many young boys who would much rather be going to school with other boys their age are being forced to work long hours of hard, dangerous work in the coal mines. The fumes that they breathe make them sick. They are constantly sick, and getting more sick everyday. Sickness is not the only harm.. many boys cut themselves on their tools, and if the rood of the mine caves in, many boys are left dead.
The boys are lonely in that dark place. No friends, no learning new things in school, no time for playing or having any fun at all. They work all day and have no time for any of those things. The boys would sometimes draw on the trap doors to the mine for fun. How could that be any fun at all? They are not paid nearly enough for this dangerous backbreaking work they do all day everyday.
Please help to regulate the jobs, pay and hours that minors can be allowed. Help them go to school, they deserve friends, and an education without fear just like everybody else.
Washington D.C., Monday, March 3, 1913.
Women suffragettes marched in the US capital, they paraded around the streets and got others to come and watch. Things started out well, but ended up crashing and burning for them. Many helpless women were attacked verbally and physically. One hundred marchers had to be taken to the local hospital. Police told the women "You should have stayed at home where you belong." Women were outraged at the entire thing, and did not let it push them down, they fought harder. Suffragettes don't deserve this abuse and cruelty.
