Workers will be payed a living wage

This will allow citizens to live on comfortable salary that is enough to live off of. Employers won't be allowed to decrease for hourly pay past $.25 per hour whenever they want to.

Workers will be payed for overtime work

This means if you work more than 40 hours a week you will receive overtime pay. For every hour over 40 you work, you will be payed for time and a half.

There are new child labor laws

No more will your children have to work long hours for low pay. Also, employers can no longer force children to do dangerous jobs until they are 18 years old. This will improve your children's heath, and overall living condition.
"Do not let any calamity-howling executive with an income of $1,000 a day, who has been turning his employees over to the Government relief rolls in order to preserve his company's undistributed reserves, tell you—using his stockholders' money to pay the postage for his personal opinions-/that a wage of $11 a week is going to have a disastrous effect on all American industry."
