    why are they barefoot?

      Shoes were expensive in those days and children often only had one pair they wore to church, and the South has warm weather year-round so they weren't really needed outside maybe 3 weeks in January.

        hookworm was a big problem in the South in those days since many poorer people didn't wear shoes. the grass down there is full of parasites that don't die in wintertime because it doesn't get cold enough to kill them.

      If you ever had an actual factory job you would know that school was way less miserable. You’re only there for 6 hours and you get way longer vacations, it’s way less work too. You get the whole summer off, you can’t be serious.

    when children are put to work it’s because
    1) they and their families need the money. if they could afford to, I’m sure the vast majority of parents would prefer not to send their kids off to a factory
    2) they have no better option to make money. if they could do something else to make the money they need, they would be doing that
    banning child labor in some place like bandgladesh in recent years (I don’t remembered which country) lead to a massive spike in child deaths (because they needed that money and couldn’t get it anymore) as well as child rapes (because they turned to sex work because they needed the money).
    as with pretty much everything else the government seeks to ban because it’s bad, the bad thing turns out to actually be happening for a reason, and the alternative turns out to be worse. much worse.

      The South in the early 20th century was dirt shit poor. The place was ravaged by the civil war and there was no especial motivation to invest money there because the Republican Party dominated national politics for decades and weren't going to do anything for the Democrat "Solid South." Nothing changed at all until the Democrat national takeover in the Depression era when FDR was obligated to throw some pork barrel money at a major constituency of his party. At best the region from 1870 to 1932 was a source of raw materials and occasional cheap non-unionized labor for textiles and other light industry.

    >The South benefited from the breakup of many large plantations as a result of the war, which acted as a great social leveler; income stratification postwar was much lower than it had been in the antebellum era and many lower class whites could own land for the first time. Overall, the region remained poor and agrarian as the industrial Northern states were content to keep it as a source of raw materials for their factories. Some enlightened Southerners promoted the idea of industrializing and beating the Yankees at their own game--one Atlanta newspaper editor wrote in 1888 "A Confederate veteran died and was buried in a churchyard. The suit he wore was made by Yankees, and so was the coffin he was buried in and the shovel used to dig the hole. The only thing the South furnished was the corpse."

    >Attempts at industrializing the region met with only modest success--the cash-strapped South lacked the funds to invest in industry and Northern financiers had little motivation to open their purses. Some success was made in light industries such as textiles that took advantage of cheap labor and right to work laws forbidding workers from unionizing.[34]
