Bagley says, "Whenever I raise the point that it is immoral to shut us in a close room for twelve hours a day in the most monotonous and tedious of employment i am told we have come to the mill voluntarily and can leave when we will. Voluntarily! ...the whip that brings us to Lowell is necessity. We must have money."
