Excerpt from Compulsory Minimum Wage Scale: Resolved, That the Policy of Fixing Minimum Wage, Scales by State Board Is Desirable; Constructive and Rebuttal Speeches

Here we find the conditions deplorable. Here the mother is compelled to work long hours and consequently has no time for household duties, and as a result the home must go unkept, and the utmost filth abounds. Here you will see families huddled together in unsanitary houses, where the most infectious diseases abound, such as diphtheria, smallpox and consumption. Here you can behold the atrocious crime of seeing the withered, white and trembling hand of a great white plague victim slowly stiching away upon a garment which perchance you or I may some day wear and investing in it the germs of that horrible disease which are destined to impair the health and efficiency of successive generations. Not only do these conditions involve the workers of the present day, but its baneful curse blights the hope of future generations. Here children grow up without the proper training of a mother or the necessary discipline of a father, or even the first fundamentals of an education. In these despicable places children are ground into dollars despite the wishes of father and mother. In the sweatshops every child must work, for it is impossible for the father to provide for the family out of his own wage. Here children are cheated out of the golden days of childhood and the joys of youth, and as a result children grow up to become not able-bodied men and women, but unemployables, both mentally and physically defective.

Now let us turn to our factories, department stores and other industries. Here we find our workers sweated almost beyond endurance. In these industries thousands of mothers are forced to work from morning till night to help earn a living for their children. Oh how many mothers are there who are forced to work from week to week,, their only thought being to earn a living for their loved ones, and by so doing are made unfit for the greatest service for which God has placed them in this world. When a mother becomes a wage earner she can neither care properly for her own health, rear her children aright, nor make her home what it should be for her husband, her children or herself.
