Factory Life

Life In The 1830's

Lowell and Slater System

Women and children were the ones working. In the Lowell System they hired young single women to work in the factories. They came from the rural areas to work in the urban areas. Women were earning their own money and they could have a chance to earn an education. In the slater system they hired young kids to work long hours in mines and factories. The kids were expected to respect their parents obey them work in the farm and do chores. But most of all it combined old labor methods with new inventions.

Women's Rights

Women were struggling to fight for their rights. They didnt get them until almost a decade later because people didnt really rake rhem seriously. Women were "forced" to clean,cook, and have kids. They didn't really have a voice back then.
