At least the weeks almost over which means another week of work done
Well like any other day I start off by breaking coal for the machines. Then I have to check the machines and do any repairs
What Happened ?
Shhhh, don't say that
I can't take these conditions, I might die if work continues like this !
ughh, I was asked to fix this thing but when I when to I got electrocuted
Workers getting ready to start a long day at the factory
Well, It's the only thing I can afford
Workers from the factory had a daily routine of what they had to do
Dang, it's really dark, time flies by...
Conditions in the factory were terrible, there was no safety on any equipment and it's was a place prone for injuries. Also a lot of the workers had Social/emotional dangers. Workers were afraid they will lose their job if they complained about conditions in the factories
Ughh, I don't want to go to work tomorrow
Well I guess I can take tomorrow off, I already got my 6 days in so . . . goodnight.
Though a lot of workers worked a lot they still got little compensation for what they did in the factories .Men got 10 shillings and woman got 5 shillings per week. If you calculate to modern day money 10 shillings is about a $1.10 which isn't even enough to get milk today
Workers were required to work for 12 hours a day at the mines.
Workers were required to work for at least 6 days a week
