Watch Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 10am on WMHT TV.

In 1775, a young apprentice boy dreams of a better life while working in a Philadelphia print shop. A Mexican-American migrant girl in 1960's California struggles to harvest garlic all day and keep up with her studies. These and other working children help illuminate the evolution of child labor in America from colonial times to today. Watch the video here.
