Due to the newcomers during the Progressive Era many people lost their jobs and immigrants took over because they worked more hours for less. Once they lost jobs they became poor and that led to poverty. The immigrants could also be stuck in poverty. Most of them would have long hours and low wages with hard conditions.Children Education was in need of reform mainly because they all they saw child education was a chance for child labor. Five year olds work in mills right next to their parents. Because of lack of Child Labor laws 7% of children were enrolled in kindergarten. What’s even worse is that “only 8% of the ones that were enrolled actually graduated High School” Because of the lack in school they changed laws to tell how long and when children were able to work so the question is, What really changed?
