Labor conditions in America have changed drastically.

By Chelsea Follett @Chellivia

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.
