Industrial Revolution Workers who had to work in factories was very difficult for them. They would come across things that weren't so easy but now things have improved to help workers. The Industrial Revolution made the lives of workers harder because of child labor, working conditions and factory accidents. Labor for children was very cruel. In picture A, its showing children with lost limbs while at work.
Most people who worked in the factories lived in the factories which had little living space, lack of proper ventilation and lack of proper hygiene (Wikipedia). Due to the poor living conditions and overcrowding people were subject to health issues and death related from communicable diseases. Along with the poor living conditions, hunger and malnutrition were common during this time. Labor laws did not exist. Workers worked long hours without breaks and children were also subjected to these cruel working conditions as they were often put to work alongside their parents.

Whether it was to try to help their parents make more money, or to feed themselves, they would work. Some of the problems the workers would have were the lack of time and of money. They worked under very poor conditions, and did not have many privileges. Incidents like the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory had major effects on the way the escapes in buildings were designed.

Norma Rae Case Study Zach Newcomb 9/27/11 “Leadership in Norma Rae” Just imagine working maximum hours for minimum wage while trying to support a family. This is the scenario for single mom Norma Rae Webster. Her occupation involves working in a southern cotton mill. The condition of the workplace is bad, respect of employees is lacking, to sum it up all the workers and Norma is underpaid and overworked. Norma Rae's parents also work at the mill and it takes a great toll on both of them mentally and physically.
Major companies built factories here and drain their waste into the city causing the children who live here to be at risk for many illnesses. The drainage problem is so bad the toxins and sewage washes into the schools. The students here lack certain amenities that “white schools” have. They are in need to books, chalk, and even hand soap and toilet paper. When Kozol travels to North Lawndale and sits in on a kindergarten class, the statistics are sad.
Blake uses alliteration, visual imagery, simile, and symbolism in his poem, “The Chimney Sweeper” to illustrate his disgust in child labor conditions. In “The Chimney Sweeper,” Blake brought to light issues regarding child laborers working in dangerous work conditions. The poem begins with the narrator being sold by his father at a young age. Typically in the 1780’s, children were sold as early as six or seven years old. The narrator is so young that he cannot say sweep instead he says “‘weep!
Likewise the children were also at risk working in the dark area in the mines. I strongly agree that, by looking at the picture of putters with trolley (annex 1), definitely the terrible working condition might have put children at risk every single day as there was no light or guidance for them to follow. Viewing at the question of who was looking at the surveillance of the children, I can say that Lord Shaftesbury and his commissioners were shadowing the children and before him, the mine owners and his employees were surveing the children. With the introduction of the report, Lord Shaftesbury and his commissioners ensure that the children surveillance was taken care of. The greatest deviance occurred after the introduction of the report as it spotted the age of every child who went to work.
Jake Stadtlander Mr. Pachuta World Studies 15 May 2013 Industrial Working Conditions ` The life of people in the mines or factories in the early 1800's was very harsh. They work very long hours and in poor conditions as well. These people were also not paid very well. They were paid well below minimum wage in correlation with today. Kids, starting at very early ages, worked as well with no remorse for them.
According to the International Labor Association, child labor is “work that harms children’s well-being and hinders their education, development, and future livelihoods.” Child labor is an obvious problem when children are put into strenuous working conditions, facing with a high injury rate, and are deprived from an education. The Human Rights Watch investigated child laborers in Egypt, Ecuador, India, and the United States. They proved that children working in agriculture are endangered and exploited daily. Even in these four different countries, risks and abuses are extremely similar. Egypt’s cotton industry was part of the Human Rights Watch’s investigation.
