Once upon a time during the Progressive Era of US History, many children were forced into labor either because of having very little money or because the state required them to be there.
The owner of the facility was a very mean and harsh businessman who only cared for making money off the fabric the children made here.
The factory was in poor condition and super packed because of all the kids working in there. They would get so worn out and looked rugged due to the harsh work they had to endure there.
The owner of the factory was very strict on the kids day after day making them work long hours with barely anytime to rest.
After a long time of harsh hours and conditions the children had at the factory, word got around to people. Once that started, many protests would start outside the factory to change the laws for child labor.
After many months of protests going on at the factory, the government stepped in to change child labor laws once and for all. Kids starting to work less hours per week and got better conditions along with the law of not being able to work till 16 years of age.
