Child Labor in the 1990s

The modern economy has a much broader scope than the economy at its conception in the Gilded Age. America relies on the world market to support its industries and exports and also relies on imports for national consumption. America thus relies indirectly on the forces of labor in trade-partnering countries throughout the world.
