Child Labor Summary
During the industrial revolution not only men and women were employed but children too. There were work houses for the children that worked at a factory to sleep. Children who worked were commonly dirty and only got $3 a week 12hrs a day 60 a week. Things were not cleanly so many people were sick. Conditions were terrible so in some ways it might have stopped a new generation. Child labor prevented many children from going to school and learning instead of learning they worked. Addie is one of the many children who had to take part in this because of this she had a nervous breakdown.

The assembly line revolutionized everything because it simplified everything. Instead people working on separate ones of the factory's product 1 person is responsible for 1 part of making the 1 thing. Using the assembly line made things much faster than people working on separate ones. The assembly line made things easier for children who had to work in factories because the children were responsible for 1 part. The assembly line may have made things easier in factories it still did not help the working conditions.
