Transcript of 2.05 Assessment Rise of The Political Machines

Child Labor in the 19th and 20th Centuries
2.05 Rise of The Political Machines
Child Labor in the 1800-1900's
The Growing Pains of Growing Americans
Child Labor was a common practice in America in the 19th Century throughout the 20th century. Children as young as 4 years old would be forced to work in cramped, dangerous factories that were infested with diseases and poisonous fumes. Not only were they paid less than adults, but they were also bullied by their employers because they could not exercise or demand their rights. It wasn't much better for the young farm workers, however, because they often worked 12 hours a day, harvesting crops in freezing or extremely hot temperatures. It wasn't til reformers like Mother Jones addressed the issue, when they finally had a voice.
"The Mini-Miners"
An Organization specially designed to bring to light the atrocities committed by big business owners to young, exploited workers.
Demands
From the Mini Miners Organization
The Mini Miners Organization has come up with a list of demands to regulate the exploitation of child workers:
Children less than 15 cannot work under the harsh conditions of the coal mining industry
*
The average work day for a child worker is between 6-8 hours a day (Subject to Compromise)
Child Workers cannot work in extreme temperatures (Subject to Compromise)
Child Workers doing adult jobs will be paid the average salary of an adult
*
Children of all ages, who work in factories, farming and coal mining will be provided with safety materials such as: gloves and gas masks
Medical expenses as a result of an On-The-Job injury to a child worker will be covered by their employer
* Most important demands
