Boy Labour and Apprenticeship

Nature volume 88, pages 372373 (18 January 1912) | Download Citation



QUESTIONS relating to industrial administration and regulation are of special interest in a time of widespread unrest in the working community. A marked improvement in trade has followed a long period of depression. A book on boy labour therefore arrives opportunely. The present production is interesting rather as a representation of the points of view of a London County Councillor than as an aid to the solution of the problems connected with the entry of the adolescent into the working community.
