Don't they look mischievous!  This photograph shows a group of young girls that work in a cotton mill. The picture was taken in about 1909 in Georgia. Work in a cotton mill would have amounted to little more than a sweatshop at this time. It is amazing how several of these girls manage a smile for the camera.

Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 is an act to prevent working conditions that are injurious to a workers health. This also means that the working conditions cannot negatively affect the work performed by that employee. This picture depicts more of the poor working conditions, even though the chapter focuses more on correct payment, hours, etc.

During the Civil War, the largest employer in Lenoir City, TN was a cotton mill, owned by Dr. Benjamin Ballard Lenoir (whose father founded the town). When the Union Army got to town, they burned the Lenoir’s general store because the family supported the Confederacy.   But before they got to the cotton mill, Dr. Lenoir gave the secret Masonic handshake to several of the Union officers – so they didn’t burn it down.
