Industrial Revolution: Rich vs Poor
By: Cameron Gooch
Work Life of the Poor
For the children who come from poor living conditions it was harder for them than for their parents because they had to also get jobs and work for big factories. These factories weren't exactly the safest environment for children to be managing heavy machinery, many kids were injured during the process of operating the machines they had to work with.
Housing of the Poor
Housing for the poor was very compacted and had very minimal rooms. it was difficult for families to live in these conditions, especially since they were paid extremely little for 16 hours of work so food, clean clothes, and other household needs were very difficult for survival.
Life of Poor Children
During these times children who were poor had a very hard and saddening life. instead of getting out of school and going out to play they had to go work for the rest of the day at dangerous factories and barely had any sleep for the next day because they spent so much time working long hours.
