Stop The Horrible Coal Mining Labor
Women and Children are in danger working in mines
unofficial child slaves
If you a kid you have to haul heavy loads of coal up a steep small tunnel to the top of the mine in complete darkness and breathing in coal dust. They also had to deal with collapsing tunnels, flooding, explosions and some times they breathed in so much coal dust they got black lung. Some times there are kids in the mine younger than 5 and there working hours were long, sometimes they would go days with out seeing the sun. Would you let your 5 year old son/daughter work like this for low wages.
women in the mines
Women working in the mines did things just like the kids working there but it was a bit harder. Instead of hauling carts of coal up small tunnels on all fours, they carried big baskets of coal up ladders as long as 10 miles strait up. Most women who worked in the mines became deformed or died due to accidents. Although women got paid more then the kids there wages was still low.
will it get better?
Will this get better will they make it so kids have to be a certain age to work? Will kids get educated and get paid more for what they do? will the women get treated better? Will the workers be treated like humans instead of slaves? I think it will when the public sees what is going on. I just hope the labor is reduced for the women and children.
