Working conditions in modern sweatshops and factories during the industrail revolution by:dianna escalante


"Those working in the factories however had to put up with incredibly difficult working conditions.Long hours,irregular breaks and labor in intensive work made the factory lifestyle difficult."


''Children were employed for four simple reasons there were plenty of them in the orphanages and they could be replaced easily if accidents did occur they were much cheaper than adults...they were small enough to crawl under machinery to tie up broken threads they were young enough to be bullied by ''scrapers ''- adults would not have stood for this''
