Children have always worked to help their families, on farms and in the home. With the growth of factory labor and increasing numbers of immigrants arriving in the U.S., children began working more and more. Accounts from children and their bosses, the development of new labor laws, and the efforts of labor reformers tell the story of child labor from the beginning of the Industrial Revolution to the reform era.
