In the mid 1800's, men, women, and children worked 12-14 hour workdays. Exhaustion was setting over the people and tempers were getting short. They began to fight for their rights to have shorter work days, but it would came at a price. Dylan, a 22 year-old factory worker, began to fight for 10 hour workdays. He worked with Sarah G. Bagley to help out the factory workers. He faced job loss and prison time after time, like many other workers, but they did not lose their determination! After several years of hard work, they were making great progress, but would they get their rights?
