Please help us. We work 10 hour days without any breaks. Also we can barely breath because of our working conditions.
We work for so long , to try to support ,our family . Our income only helps a bit, that's because we only paid about .60 a day.
On the Streets
We have barely gotten any sleep, and our feet are killing us.
While children were working in the factories they had no breaks throughout their 10 hour day and their working conditions were harsh and cruel. In the factories it was always humid and they breathed in the lint in the air.
After the children's hard day at work with a small amount of money paid for their labor which was only 60 cents. They would give their earnings to their parents and that money would help toward food and their home.
The newspaper boys would constantly be on their feet. Though it wasn't only them who were on their feet all day. Young boys who were shoe-shiners and others who were hurting as well. Because of their job in the city they rarely ever got time to sleep.
