Many Ohioans also supported an amendment to the United States Constitution outlawing child labor. An amendment was proposed in the United States Congress during the1920's and again in the early 1930s, but many Americans, including numerous Ohioans, feared that this legislation would prevent children from being able to help parents on farms or in family-owned businesses. Although the amendment never passed, the Bing Act and other pieces of state legislation began to protect Ohio's children from exploitation in the workforce.
