    The Saddest Fact is This is still going on in the World, even in So-Called "Enlightened" Culture in Europe and North America if Immigrants and Refugees don't choose to Integrate into Their New Cultures.

    Nothing changes for People as they get older if their Abusers still control them! It's Time to change hings for the Better don't you think or are you still not hurting enough?

    I noticed the newspaper said "1 cent" for the cost of it. I can't imagine they were paid hardly a scrap for doing what they did.

    Back in these days children quickly matured into adults through hard work and today children never become adults through lack of work. Hard to say what is better, should have gone for a middle ground.

    Invariably people will type " what about" to talk about other countries but this is an example for other countries to inspire them to end child labor. If we ended it in the early 20th century they can end it now.

    I suppose this proves kids are just as capable as adults even if what they are doing is extremely dangerous, there’s kids still working jobs not suitable for them in third world countries because that’s the way it is. They know nothing other than working to get food on the table or to care for their parents, these photos are sad but it’s still a reality for millions of kids around the world.

    Back then it wasn't that all the parents wanted to make their children work, it was that the pay was so terrible they had no choice. Even having their children work, sometimes the parents had to give up there children in hopes they would have a better life. The factory owners (not all but alot) back then treated every one bad adults and children. A very hard time back then! And people are always whining and protesting now days over things that are not really that bad now. I think people just like to complain now.

    In them days they had no choice. So what about children growing up in poverty and their parents are to strung out to take care of them.

    Children were not "children" in those days not even "teenager" existed.

    Too sad Lewis Hine had to live on welfare in his last days. His photos saved many a child from slavery.

    There is nothing wrong with child labor. It is not immoral or wrong.

    This still happens today and it leads to trafficking and child slavery. 😦

    Sorry Pal, But the picture of this so called Sadie Pfeifer in Lancaster, SC @ 1:54 is not a picture of a little girl in front of a large loom in a hall. You are mistaken. I've worked in a cotton mill as well as most of my family, and I question the integrity of this whole video.
