2.05 Rise of the Political MAchines
Transcript of 2.05 Rise of the Political MAchines
"THE MINI -MINERS"
An organization designed to bring the light to the atrocities committed by a business owner to young exploited workers.
This organization has come up with the list of demands to regulate the exploitation of child workers: Children less than 15 cannot work under harsh conditions of the coal-mining industry. The average work day for a child worker is between 6-8 hours a day. Child workers cannot work in extreme temperatures. Children doing adult jobs are to be paid the same as adults. 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 result of an on the job injury to a child worker will be covered by their employer.
Throughout the 19th and 20th century, in America, child labor was a common practice. Children as young as 4 years old were to work in cramped, dangerous factories that had diseases and poisonous fumes lurking around. They were obviously paid less than adults but they were bullied by the employers. The young farm workers didn't have it any better. They had to work 12 hours a day, in the freezing cold harvesting crops . When Mother Jones finally addressed the issue, the young ones were now allowed to voice there opinion without any repercussions.
