Growing up in America during the 1890s was much different from growing up today. Children as young as 10 years old held full-time jobs in order to help their families. Many of these children worked 14 hours a day for as little as 27 cents. Today, however, children are not allowed to hold part-time jobs until they are at least 14 years old. Federal laws also restrict the number of hours teenagers work. While some teenagers today work out of necessity to help their families, most do so to earn spending money or to save for college
