This study compares labor histories of Chile, pointing out that some stress the importance, mining, others urban work, and still others, the role of women. It also looks at the problem of illegitimacy and the problems for children born out of wedlock to establish paternity under the Civil Code of 1854. Both secular and Catholic orphanages prepared children for domestic work. Importantly as well, the study examines the roll of women in the Chilean labor movement.
