Conclusion
Child Labor
How was the Social Problem addressed during the Industrial Age?

The government worked on passing laws to prevent child labor. Labor unions were trying to proclaim their power.

Child Labor
Was the Social Problem addressed successfully?

Yes, eventually children under the age of 16 were not allowed to work in jobs such as mining and manufacturing. Also a minimum wage was set.


Child Labor

There is still child labor in places like farms across America. Even though child labor is illegal there are children as young as 6 working in American Agriculture businesses.

How was the Social Problem addressed during the Industrial Age?

The Tenement House Law outlawed the construction of new tenements and improved the sanitary conditions of the tenements.
