Satisfactory Essays
This political cartoon represents How corrupt child labor was in The Progressive Era. On the left there is two men, who are enjoying them self, by being pushed in a cart by children. On the right there is three children ,who have to push this big cart, with two men on it. There is also an old lady who is helping the children push this cart. The old lady represents, that child labor companies push children into work from a young age till the day they die.

If you look closley to your left you can see that the cart says “ supported by child labor”. This proves that there are people out there, who think child labor is right. The companies who support labor at a young age push children to their limits.
