  • Worked to the BoneAvery Black
  • What have you done?
  • Cough! Cough!
  • Children, like Leo, Martha and Floyd were working 12 hour work days, 7 days a week to earn enough money to support their families.
  • Get out of here!
  • President Roosevelt signed the Fair Labor Standards Act
  • Lewis Hine went around the country to take pictures of children in labor to prove to the world that child labor was real and it took a huge toll on the children.
  • It's about time..
  • Children were working in dangerous places, and the work was dangerous as well. Children got injured and sick very often, even to the point of death.
  • For Hine, getting pictures of the children working was a huge risk. The owners would do whatever it takes to keep their cheap workers and have good business.
  • Eventually, Hine's work helped lead to the passing of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
