Hi my name is Kaylyn and this is the Industrial Revolution
Uh over here you can see what they did to the working class when they were late to the factories.... uh yeah they would strap them. Lets go somewhere else.
Much better, now strapping is when you have a long thick piece of leather and you hit someones hands with it. Yeah it wasn't a really great time back then. now lets move onto the living conditions
They were some pretty bad too. They didn't have working plumbing so they would throw trash and human waste through the windows onto the street. The homes were provided by the factories they worked at. They had about 12 people living in one apartment. That made it really easy to get sick
The working class usually didn't have enough money to eat so they were very skinny and bony. That made the work a lot harder. If they failed to meet satisfactory they would be strapped or beaten. Sometimes people would even die from these injuries
This is a very sad time when woman were seen as people to stay home, cook, clean, take care of kids, and do it all again every single day. Women worked in factories too but they got payed less for doing the same thing that men do. Women were also beaten by their husbands if they didn't want to do the things at their apartment
