I'm having trouble breathing from all of this pollution. It is really not good for my health and there isn't a lot of medicine that could cure me if I get really sick. At least I have the train to take as a way of transportation. This steamed powdered train was a great invention!
I know ughhh.
I am not ready to work this long dreadful shift. We are all young teenagers who should not be working yet.
I have been working for 12 hours at this sewing machine. I hate only getting one break. I am hungry and exhausted but have to be back here in 4 hours.
This place is so dangerous. My friend here just passed away yesterday from getting beaten due to being late. I wish i could just go to school but the demand for work is so high so I cannot even get a good education.
Work was so exhausting today and I am not getting paid enough to pay rent for you guys.
I know that you are trying your best and you're only 12 years old honey. Hopefully we won't have to start living on the streets soon but population is dramatically increasing which means decrease in employment. I hope things will get better soon.
I am glad that the government decided to pass The Factory Act of 1833 because now my hours have been shortened. I can have more time to do chores around the house for my parents and get a little more sleep.
