Storyboard Text

  • Hi I'm Henry and I'm 10 yrs old. We are in the industrial revolution and my family is very poor. I have to work in this factory everyday to help provide for my family.
  • I help make a lot of things from tires, to lights, and helping with the spinning jenny. I make minimum wage of about 50 cents a day.
  • You better hurry up son before the overseer comes.
  • Me and my friends hate working here. It is very busy and we have a lot of work because we are in the urban area of town.
  • I hope we can go home soon.
  • I just want to play and go home but I get yelled at by the overseer. I am forced to help our economy.
  • What are you doing, young man! Get down, and no payment for you today!
  • What are we going to do? We just don't have enough money!
  • When I get home I see mom crying because the company isn't giving us enough money.
  • Honey, we will figure it out. Do not cry.
  • Father and I will work extra.
  • 4 years later...
  • You have done so much for our family!
  • My family has grown some money and we are not poor now.
  • I'm proud of you son!
