Industrialization in China
by Sara Kawai, Block F
In the late 1700s of Britain, the working conditions were frighteningly identical to China's industry. These atrocious conditions lead into the next image. The second image shows the people of China protesting against working under horrible states and low wages. During the industrial revolution, the workers created unions to reform for their rights. Sometimes, they would even go on strikes if the factory owners refused to meet the demands of the union. These strikes for improvement have been seen throughout various places in Chinese factories. The last image shows the hardworking and industrious employees in the factories. Although these people work long hours, they still have low wages and barely get enough food or sleep in their systems. Overall, many of these images show the harsh truth about industrialization in China.
