This storyboard does not have a description.
Hey my name is Jake and I am living in the late 1800's. I work in a factory but pay is a huge issue. Our pay is very low. It can be as low as 1 shilling a day which would be equal to 35 cents a day.
We also work long hard hours. I work from 5 to 16 hours a day! My job is extremely boring and miserable.
The health conditions in the factory are brutal and extremely unsanitary. Everyone is constantly ill and sickness spreads quickly. Many accidents also happened in the factories.
People worked from childhood till their elder years. Everyone needed money so you would have to work in the factories. Children could not get an education and some people worked until they died. There was no retirement because the people were too poor to retire.
The people were given stinky food such as stale bread and water which of course was not a real meal. People would starve and they could not afford food with the salary that they had which was very sad for them.
This was the only job that we were able to get and this is what everybody did back then. There was child labor which is banned today, but there was unsanitary conditions and the factory workers had very low paying jobs. America today is becoming more and more like that with our sweat-shops.
