Child Labor By: Eliaz Garcia

Child Labor in the U.S.

Child labor in U.S. started in about the late 1700's to the early 1800's. Child labor started mostly due to the Industrial Revolution because they needed more people to manage the machines.

Child labor officially ended in 1938 which allowed teens 16 and 17 years of age to do non dangerous work and allowed 18 and up to do dangerous work.
