Sweated Work, Weak Bodies: Anti-Sweatshop Campaigns and Languages of Labor - Bender, Daniel E

In the early 1900s, thousands of immigrants laboured in New York's Lower East Side sweatshops, enduring work environments that were among the worst examples of the Progressive Era. This book explores how sweatshops came to represent the dangers of industrialization and the perils of immigration.
