Factories In The 19th Century
They didn't just literally stink....
It was harder than the concrete that they were making.
Factory life is obviously hard, but back then, "hard" wasn't really a passable word to describe it. Maybe we could come up with a new word for it? Why not 'runforyourlifeitsthedevilmaygodhavemercyonoursouls' hard?
How safe were the factories?
They weren't. Enough said.
Summary of sorts.
Obviously, factory life in the 19th century was hard. Murderously hard. It really makes me glad that child labor is illegal in America now. If it wasn't, then oh jeez, we would be in for some figurative and literal death....
