Conditions of Factories
Horrible treatment for factory workers.
Child Labor in Factories
In the late 19th century, child labor in factories was a huge problem. Children had to work in the rough conditions of factories from a young age. With no shoes and proper clothing to wear, the kids had to suffer through long hours of hard work. The children often got sick and had no proper way to be taken care of.
Children could not live as normal children because they had to work in factories for many hours a day.
Even while still young, children are forced to work without stopping.
Children are covered in dust and have inhaled gases that can be harmful to their body.
Dangerous working areas
Working in factories during this time also means dangerous situations. Many workers have been seriously injured or have died from working in the factories. Workers would lose an arm when working with the machines. It has happened where workers would be burned or scorched to death by hot metal. The workers do not have anything to protect them or keep them from being seriously hurt.
