Mike Hayden and family

A 1990 political postcard of Kansas Governor Mike Hayden with wife Patti and daughters from left to right: Anne and Chelsi. Hayden began his political career in 1972 when he was elected to the Kansas House of Representatives. During his tenure in the legislature, he served as chairman of the house ways and means committee, 1979-1982, before being elected Speaker of the House in 1982. For five years he served as speaker until elected, in 1986, as the forty-first Governor of Kansas. Hayden served one term as governor before losing, in 1990, to Democratic State Treasurer Joan Finney. In 2000 Governor Kathleen Sebelius appointed Hayden Secretary of Kansas Wildlife and Parks.


Part I: Child Labor in Sixth Annual Report of the Bureau of Labor and Industrial Statistics

Kansas. Dept. of Labor and Industry

Part I of this government report addresses the problem of child labor in Kansas, which appeared to be increasing. Most of the report focuses on existing child labor laws in Kansas, statistics about child employment (broken down by county, child?s age, ethnic background, etc?), and the industries that employed children. The report also addresses school attendance and truancy laws (which would effectively curb the unlawful employment of children) and includes the results of interviews with school superintendents and questionnaires filed out by those known to employ children in their businesses. School superintendents were overwhelmingly in favor of compulsory education, and most employers believed that it was important for children to understand the value of hard work (although some did speak about the benefits of school).
