The living standards in the US declined because the USSR fell apart? Not how I remember it. Seems like a giant leap to me.
With Soviet socialism out of the picture and Cuban socialism fighting for its life, the bosses felt less need to make concessions to organized labor to keep the working class in line. Hence the broad antilabor offensive opened up under Clinton, the effects of which have been obvious.
Child labor goes back to the days of cavemen when kids were expected to work to help the family. In the days of family farms they were expected to help plant crops and help with livestock. In 1938 congress passed the FLSA that banned some forms of child labor.
This article, which is the second of a two-part series on child labor, describes legislative efforts to curtail the employment of children in the late 1800s and the first half of the 1900s.
Even as per your link the passage of the first national child labor bill coincided almost exactly with the Russian revolution and the court allowed the bill to go into effect following the rise of the communist-led CIO unions and the decade of the “Red Thirties.”
