how did Lewis Hines work help influence child labor laws

1 Answer

  • the NCLC had been trying to put a stop to child ever since it was founded in 1904, but statistics weren't having the effect they had hoped. So in 1908 they decided to enlist the help of Lewis Hine and his camera to get their message out. Over the next decade and a half, Hine traveled to half of continental US, taking photos of everything from the Breaker boys inthe mines of Pennsylvania- whose job was to separate coal from slate to the children working in Cotton Mills in Georgia and Alabama.
