Storyboard Text

  • In 1834 the paw law was changed as it was too expensive. Everyone who was poor went to workhouses. They were basically punished for being poor and separate from girls and boys and the able and notable.
  • The workhouses had a lot of children working there. The jobs were-bone braking ,stone braking and oakum picking which made your fingers bleed.
  • the children who worked at workhouses were normally orphans.They were promised good food but were lied too. Once you go into the workhouses you never get out unless you die or you are let out at the age of 21.
  • the workers were not payed with money they were payed with food. The jobs in work houses were not even given to people in jail its that bad.
  • each workhouse had at least 200000 people working there. Lots of people died by working to hard or getting mangled up.
  • if you tried to run away the owner of the workhouse will probable come after you and whip you. A common punishment for girls was too cut their hair off which was a horrible punishment and you would be put in a room for a week sometimes either with a dead corps.
