In 1873, at the age of just 5 years old, Emily was alive when on September 18th, the New York stock market crash - due to the failure of a number of banks - began the Panic of 1873.

The Act banned oppressive child labor, set the minimum hourly wage at 25 cents, and established the maximum workweek at 44 hours. It faced a lot of opposition and in fighting for it, Roosevelt said "Do not let any calamity-howling executive with an income of $1,000 a day, ...tell you...that a wage of $11 a week is going to have a disastrous effect on all American industry."
