Often required to help support their families, children served as unregulated and inexpensive labor for a growing U.S. industrial economy. Later, reformers publicized children&apos-s working conditions to help gain passage of child labor laws. This volume also includes contextual summaries, vocabulary, activities, and photographs of children at work.
