The Workhouse

BY Mason Eagle and Hunter Kassinger

Workhouse Life

Life was meant to be harder on the inside of the workhouse than it was on the outside. They were full of dieseases started by starvation and overcrowding. People in the workhouse were made to eat with their fingers. They crushed up human bones to make fertilizer, some people were so hungry that they would eat chunks of meat off of the bones

Workhouse Storys

A well known story goes that a lobourer told him that he was leaving in two weeks with his wife and kids. Only o be told that you can leave but you cant take your wife we had to bury her three weeks ago. Another story tells about how a man died in the workhouse without attention or enough food or water.
Long story short the workhouses were a dreadful place where people didn't get enough food or medical attention.
