I don’t agree with child labor at all. I think that child labor was too dangerous. The owners should not have been using children. I also think they should’ve stood up to the owners a long time before they actually did. There were way too many injuries and deaths. The kids worked too long and too hard for such little pays. The bosses were way too strict when it came down to the kids coming in 1-2 minutes late. They should’ve given the kids days off and sick days. The reason why there were so many injuries and deaths were because the bosses were too strict on the kids and only cared about the business doing well instead of wondering if the kids were okay.credit: www.eiu.edu
