Twelve hour works days, and working six days every week is common practice. With no minimum wage, pay is very low, a mere 10 cents per hour. A simple cut could mean death or injury due to bacteria, and no medical assistance is required. If someone cut off a body part, they were bandaged up and told to suck it up or they were fired, and they wouldn't be able to provide for the family. 25,000 to 35,000 deaths and 1 million injuries every year are as a result of industrial jobs, fires, train wrecks, and machinery accidents. Any strikes or boycotts means being fired and being blacklisted, making it impossible to find a job.
All of these facts point to the conclusion that in these workers conditions, workers lives are at risk. Not only is it male's lives at risk though. Children and women also share these injustices. Immigrants have this worse, facing suspicion from their employers. A direct link of these injustices is home life. Tenements are cramped, drinking water is poor, trash piles up in streets, and sickness rampages. Workers cannot change this because low pay, and they have no say in working conditions.
