Is a decent wage too much to ask for Mr.Rockifeller?
Finally I can work safely!

In the 1800's, due to new machines, increased population, and decreased crop prices lead to the rise of mass production and industrialization.
However, with industrialization comes poor conditions, extremely low wages, and long work days. However, fed up workers went on strike to help make things right for the workers.
With the creation of Labor Unions, and Laws to better work conditions for factory workers, work could now be done while paying factory workers a decent wage, maintain safe working conditions, and shorten work days.
