Today, these problems still prove to be persistent. Not in the dramatic numbers as of the 1900s but evident in the high number of high school drop outs in their attempt to enter the work force early to contribute to current obligations. Although now we have laws regulating work hours and minimum wage, immigrants are still forced to work long days with very little pay.
