STOP CHILD LABOR

Poor Wages & Poor Jobs

About 1.7 million kids worked in the worst conditions. All kids from ages 10-15 either worked in textile mills and or coal mines. The bosses wanted kids to work dangerous jobs because they were cheaper and had more energy to work long rough hours.

Put an END to Child Labor

"Breaker Boys" worked in coal mines where they could get blow up, trampled and worked 14-16 hours EACH and EVERY day. Most of the kids have NEVER seen the inside of a school, like EVER!

Work Sited
