Martha gets distracted by Floyd's cough that when she sticks her hand in the machine there is an explosion of loose thread. Martha screamed and fell to the floor. The overseer walks by and doesn't even care to check on Martha, but says get up and get back to work. Martha gets up and two of her fingers are disfigured..
Hine went to a factory where he wanted to get a photo of a little girl working. He finds a little girl and stops her and says"what about a photo?" The little girl walked along and said I am getting paid, not now. Hine stops the girls as she walks away and she stops. While Hine is getting the camera set up the boss approaches him. The boss asked what he was doing and Hine said he was taking a photo of one of his hard-working ladies. The boss did not approve of him to take a photo and shoved Hine out of the factory with a shovel.
When Hines pictures of the children started to show up in the newspapers factory owners got more suspicious of Hines photography. One day Hine presents him self to an overseer and told him that he is an individual photographer. Then later hine went deeper in to the mill to discover a place where just children where working and there where no adults. Hined approached a shy girl with no shoes on and wanted her to pose next to the machines for a picture.
Hine took 5,000 photos over a time span of 10 years, of children doing harsh labor. His photos raised awareness to people to show them how harsh child labor really was. Yet the laws about child labor where slow to change. Years later more and more people started to forget all about Hine then he went completely broke. Shortly later the president signed to out law child labor.
