In 1916, the NCLC and the [[National Consumers League]] successfully pressured the US Congress to pass the [[Keating-Owen Act]], the first federal child labor law. However, the [[Supreme Court of the United States|US Supreme Court]] struck down the law two years later in ''[[Hammer v. Dagenhart]]'' (1918), declaring that the law violated a child's [[freedom of contract|right to contract his or her own labor]]. In 1924, [[United States Congress|Congress]] attempted to pass a [[constitutional amendment]] that would authorize a national child labor law. This measure was blocked, and the bill was eventually dropped.

In 1938, President [[Franklin Delano Roosevelt|Franklin D. Roosevelt]] signed the [[Fair Labor Standards Act]], which, among other things, placed limits on many forms of child labor.
