The first instance of industrial riots occured in England from 1811 - 1813. Groups of textile workers (luddites) resisted the labor-saving machines that were costing them their jobs. Some smashed machines with hammers while others burned down factories.
For people who worked in factories hours were long, shifts lasting 12 - 16 hours non-stop, 6 - 7 days a week. Workers could only take a break when the factory owner gave them permission. Exhausted workers were often injured, some worked to the point of their own death.
