Paragraphs About Child Labor And John Spargo

Paragraphs About Child Labor And John Spargo | Child Labor in The Early 1900's | Scoop.it

During the industrial revolution child labor was horrible. Many kids ended up loosing their lives and their childhood due to having to work all day for hours, which neglected them from getting an education. The most important thing to know is that child labor did not only take place in factories but in coalmines as well. Children often died in factories and coalmines, they got little to no pay, and got sick very often. Next, children had to work many hours just like adults but they got paid less than the adults. Children worked an average of 12 to 14 hours, while working long hour’s children had different types of work. Child picked rocks in coalmines and worked on machines in factories. Furthermore, there were dangerous working conditions at jobs. Working conditions were so bad children got really sick and even died from working. Although, child labor took place in industrial revolution it still does in some parts of the world today. Today children in Africa and other places are forced to work. Since, the industrial revolution child labor has gotten better but it sill exists. John Seargo is a muckraker who wrote about how horrible child labor was. First with information he found out he wrote a book called “The Bitter Cry Of Children” which explained what happened on the inside of the factories and the coalmines children worked at. Next he shared the book with the world to let everyone know what was going on so they could put an end to child labor. Inside the factories there was barely enough room to move around and work comfortable. The coal mine was even worse they breathed in coal dust and each breath they took destroyed their lungs. Finally children had no choice to go to school unless they had money and they didn’t have too work. If the family didn’t have much money the whole family would be working due too little pay. Child labor back then was horrible because children died and they were not able to attend school and get an education. Making children work was not a good idea if all the children died who would be there to produce the next generation nobody. Child labor still is present today even with the child labor laws it is just present in other countries not the United States.
