A worker building a railway.

Storyboard Text

  • Yes boss! I will get to work right away.
  • Get to work, we want this railway to be finished, and make it NEAT!
  • I'm just gonna take a little brake.
  • Where do you think your going?
  • I was thinking that I could go to bed because I have worked so hard, so long, and I have to get up early.
  • The Navvies have to work a lot. they get up early a start laying down the track. They work all day and don't get a brake until it is dark.
  • Nobody is going to sleep, you guys have to make up for today's work.
  • The Navvies should have breaks, but are they allowed?
  • Finally a break.
  • I guess not. Navvies worked day and night, and they only got 2 meals a day. They got no breaks and very little sleep. This is just the day of Navvies, now we go into the night.
  • Get back to work.
  • If they slightly messed up on a tiny bit, they would have to work all night as well. Getting no food and no rest. Working all night.
  • They want their breaks.
  • Nope, no break for them.
