Life of Factory workers.

During the late nineteenth century the U.S. economy underwent a spectacular increase in industrial growth. Factory workers had to face long hours, poor working conditions, and job instability. Many employees lost their jobs or faced sharp pay cuts. Working hours were long, averaging at least ten hours a day and six days a week. There were even employees who did more hours . all ages as well. Employees were ruled by the clock, with no freedom at all and very limited breaks.

A terribe time

A Terrible time.

As seen from the photographs above the working conditions were very terrible. Starting at young ages children worked in factory's they even sometimes stayed as long the adults which were up to 10 hours maybe longer! at times they had no shoes could of had many many holes through out the clothes they had on which were dirty and probably worn for the 3rd day straight. People who worked in the factory had little freedom, they didnt have much breaks and spent most of their day working inside in a hot area with no sunlight. And for as much work as they did and as long as they did it they pretty much got beat because they didnt get paid what they should of. Matter of fact they barely made anything.
