So dad what is the important news you wanted to tell me?
We are moving to the city! I’m going to try and get a better job. I was thinking of getting a job in a factory.
1 week later...
Wow dad I can’t believe we’re finally here! It’s so different compared to the farm.
I know! I’m so excited to start this new chapter of outrage lives.
The girls father worked inhumanly long hours and worked in harsh dangerous conditions in the factory everyday trying to provide for his daughter. But no matter how much and how hard he worked he was barely payed enough to afford anything.
Hey sweetie. How are you liking our new home? This was all I could afford.
It’s great dad! I’m so proud of you for working so hard.
In the city many people lived in slums because the population was overcrowded and they had terrible living conditions. Everyone lived closed to one another, disease spread rapidly and lack of medicine can’t medical care resulted in many deaths.
Dad I can’t believe how many people live on the streets. There are so many people who are sick.
I know. We need to be careful and not get sick.
People were finally fed up with how they were being treated in the factories. People started protesting and after multiple boycotts the Factory act of 1833 was signed.
