Timeline

1936 - In the year that Rocco Morris was born, on November 2nd, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) debuted the world's first regular high-definition television service.

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."
