What have you done?
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.
