Child Labor

As I stand here before you in this gorgeous state of Georgia this afternoon I’m here to explain the hazards and misfortunes of children working in factories. First I will tell you a little bit about my background.   My name is Amanda Bolterman I gradated from Harvard University in the late 1900’s as a children’s psychologist at the age of 22.   I grew up in the rural parts of Georgia, where I helped my father farm our land, while my sisters helped my mom do house chores, while I was outside.   Although, I was a girl growing up in this time period I never really had the passion to do what my ma and sisters were doing.   While studying children in school I focused my main studies on the work force in which children were in.   I am here to tell you that there will be a change in government over children working in factories.   This is no longer seen as acceptable, there is no reason why children, whether black or white should be working in mills.   I am here to assure you that our major goal as Americans of the state of Georgia is to abolish children working in mills.   It will be required for all children aging from 4 years of age to 18 years of age to attend school.   There will be an organized system in which children at the age of 4 will attend kindergarten to prepare them for school; all the way up to grade 12 were students should be prepared for the work world before them.   I’m here to tell you that this behavior shown by those superior, will have consequences, of such imprisonment.   As citizens of America we don’t want our children of the future putting themselves in danger, rather we want them to get an education that will take them far and make the United States a better place not only to be, but to live as well.   I see American’s facing several problems if they do not take control and abolish children under 16 working in mills.   So please take a moment to think about what I have said. I will be glad to take any questions that anyone has at this time.
