I don't want to go to work. I am 13, most children don't make it to my age!
It's always so crowded and dirty in these streets!
I hate working for 14-16 hours, 6 days a week. We can't even wear shoes!
My friend died the other day, due to fibrous lungs. She was only 10!
HELP! SOMEONE! I AM STUCK IN THE MACHINE!
AHHHHH, MY FINGER IS STUCK!
Ever since the cotton industry moved to factories it has become a lot more dangerous for us.
There are hardly any windows, we get paid very little, get stuck in machines and we're at risk of factories collapsing on us, IT'S INSANE!
I can't believe they want me to fix the machine, it's too dangerous and they're so loud. A boy the other day just went deaf, it's horrible!
That's terrible! Most kids start before they are 10 years old, we are lucky to be alive.
No one cares about our safety and only very few protest. All they do is put profits above our well being!
I don't want to go to the factory tomorrow. They only use us because they don't have to pay us alot and we have small hands to fix machines. We barely have enough to buy food, we are just surviving off grool and porridge.
