    How the Other Half Lives: Studies among the Tenements of New York explained the living conditions in New York slums as well as the sweatshops in some tenements, which paid workers only a few cents per day. The book explains the plight of working children; they would work in factories and at other jobs. Jacob Riis realize the problem and says "Nothing is now better understood than that the rescue of the children is the key to the problem of city poverty." The thing is the adults never cared about the children, they did not realize that the children would be the only way to stop the rapidly increasing poverty of New York.
