Tampa Daily Times ,



In the 1830’s, various unions proposed that states should establish a minimum ages for factory workers. However, it was not for another 100 years, in 1938, that the Fair Labor Standards Act was created which, for the first time, set the minimum age of employment and number of hours children were allowed to work. Unfortunately, that was eleven years after this photo was taken of two boys standing next to presses at the Tampa Daily Times.
