Labor Day History: The Tragic Significance of Cheap Bottles ~ Antique Bottle History & Vintage Labor Day Art

Bottle Boys: 1909 

"The automated glass bottle making machine is said to have done more for education than child labor laws."
Above quotes are from a study of the child labor in the Pittsburgh glass houses.
Lest we forget, little girls labored too.


Once upon a time we didn't even have 8-hour workdays, or weekends, let alone 3-day weekends: "The eight-hour day movement forms part of the early history for the celebration of Labour Day, and May Day in many nations and cultures."
Enjoy your holiday weekend -- then back to work we go!
