Title

"The Child Labor Amendment" to U.S. Constitution.  [Anti- Child Labor Amendment pamphlet]

Description

A report by the Committee on Industrial Relations to the New York Board of Trade and Transportation. 

The pamphlet states that a child labor amendment is not needed and that “…it makes a natural and sympathetic appeal calculated to forestall criticism or disarm antagonism…” (p.1)  It also outlines arguments against the amendment, including that many problems of child labor have already been addressed; the amendment impinges on parent child relationships; that child labor issues are local rather than national ones and that states have the “necessary powers” to oversee them; and that an amendment would lead to the “Communistic or Bolshevistic Nationalization of Children.” (p. 6)

The report is signed by the Committee on Industrial Relations

William McCarroll, Chairman
August Goldsmith

E. C. Miller
