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.

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.
