What were working conditions like in britian? During the industrial revolution and how the became better? Thanks in advance
-The factories were very hot
-Poor ventilation meant it was hard to breath
-No safety precautions, workers were often injured or hurt
-cramped conditions and being bent over all the time lead to deformations
-12-14 hours of work a day
-No clocks allowed, no idea of time
-employers hired men to beat workers not doing good job
-Due to fibres in air, many people got lung disease
-Kids and women employed because they are smaller and get less pay
-Kids crawled under machinery to get rubbish they were called scavengers
-Kids mended the spinning machines while they were still on
-Workers often hurt, a lot!!!!!
-In mines, it was hard
-Kids employed to sit in the dark as ventilation openers, men miners, women haulers
It changed with workers trying to get rights, the establishment of unions ect….
