Work life in the late 1800s and early 1900s
For the poor working conditions where terrible, they were hungry and had no money. Their jobs were dangerous, you could get hurt and any second. The poor didn't get paid much so they had to have their kids work to get more money. For the rich, if they worked it wasn't hard for them. The rich really didn't have to work because they were rich but some did to get more money. They had it easy, it was very unfair.
Housing in the late 1800s and early 1900s
Housing for the poor was nasty and small. They lived in tenements in the city, there were up to 8 people living in those apartments. Housing for the rich was really nice just like it is today, they had big houses it was clean and very neat. It was 100 times better the the poor peoples homes.
Lives of children in the late 1800s and early 1900s
Lives of children sucked for the poor family's, they had to work in dangerous factories and out on the streets by there self. It was scary for them to have a job at that young of an age. For the rich it was an easy life, they got to go to school and learn and have fun with their friends and play around. The poor had it hard and the rich had it easy.
