Child Labor

In 1920 there were around 1 million children 10-15 year olds in the work force.

Thousands of children were forced to quit school and go to work, and endure long hours, and diffucult work!

CHILD LABOR

Many young boys worked in the mines a hard job even for grown men, many did not live past the age of 45

Some kids as young as 5 years old were recruited into the work force, to be paper boys, peddlers, and thieves

Newsies at the turn of the century!

Thousands of child workers were mangled every year because of the dangerous machinery that they were required to use everyday.
