Title

Here in Massachusetts [Massachusetts Child Labor Committee pamphlet]

Description

Here in Massachusetts: A fund raising pamphlet issued by the Massachusetts Child Labor Committee to promote regulation of working conditions and employment for children. The pamphlet cites statistics on child labor and industrial accidents and argues that work detracts from education, offers no real future benefits, and impairs health.

The first page shows a photograph of a boy with the caption “Worth a Chance? How Much is That Chance Worth to You!”

The pamphlet includes a word puzzle, “An Old Problem and a New Year.: the Corner Stones of a Square Deal” The puzzle identifies play, work, health, and school as rights of childhood.
