Child Labor

I do not like child labor because children are to young to go off on there own and work in a factory . The people who made kids go work in factories are making a kid do a mans job. I heard that they worked six days a week and 12-14 hours a day. Some kids even died from them doing their job. They also lost limbs from being cut. The coal miners would get sick from all the dust in the caves. When the girls where working they lost some of there fingers from the needles. One last thing when the girls where sewing the bosses would lock the door so they would not try to leave.
