Labor conditions in America have changed drastically.
The Improved Life of the American Worker
By Chelsea Follett

Since 1915, the year that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Monthly Labor Review began, labor conditions in America have changed drastically. Compared to 1915, the average American in 2015 is healthier, better educated, working less while in a safer environment, and making more money yet spending less on everyday goods. Check out the full BLS report on the progress here.
