children suffer from child labor!!!

harmful working conditions for children!!!!

many children worked in mines,manufacturing for grueling 72 hour workweeks. 1.7 children worked in harmful conditions every day. just so they could help provide for themselves,and or their family.the work days consisted on a 14-16 hour work.also many machines could harmfully hurt many of the children.

the problem was solved due to the fair labor standard act.but unfortunately this act didn't get passed the first time. it was not passed due to people not thinking it was constitutional. the act got passed on 1983 this was a great thing fr the u.s. this act placed limitations in child labor,first set of national minimum wage,standard interstate commerce!
