By: Rylee Reichard
What are indentured servants? An indentured servant are people who signed a contract to work from 4-7 years to try to find a job. The contract they signed was called a Indenture. Also, indentured servants didn't get paid either. Indentured servants " payment" was food, clothing and shelter. This is why indentured servants didn't have a lot of money. Most indentured servants were young men between the ages of 15-25 looking for a job. Some indentured servants where apprenticed to craft men. Also, when you become a indentured servant your master would pay your way to the new world. That is what an indentured servant is.
