Arkansas became the first of 28 states to ratify the Child Labor Amendment, a proposed and still-pending amendment to the United States Constitution that would specifically authorize Congress to regulate “labor of persons under 18 years of age.”
.
The amendment was proposed in 1924 following Supreme Court rulings in 1918 and 1922 that federal laws regulating and taxing goods produced by employees under the ages of 14 and 16 were unconstitutional.
.
Interest in the amendment waned following the passage of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, which implemented federal regulation of child labor with the Supreme Court’s approval in 1941.
.
In 1900, 18 percent of all American workers were under the age of 16. Learn more about child labor in America at the link: http://www.history.com/topics/child-labor
