Transcript of Factory Conditions in the 19th and 21st century

By Sami Aruri Factory Conditions in the 19th and 21st century Adidas shoe factory workers in China are forced to work from 8am to 11pm because of such low pay which is over the legal limit. Employees are threatened with being fired to work overtime, and are locked up if they refuse to do so. Hours Worked in Adidas Factories Salaries in Adidas Factories Working Conditlons in Adidas Factories Thesis Conclusion Adidas factory workers in Indonesia,
China, and the Philippines have
reported factory life to be just as
unfair as factory conditions back in the
Industrial revolution in the 19th
century because workers are getting
a low salary, unfair working
conditions, and too many
hours worked. Workers in China, the Philippines,
and Indonesia have reported that
they are illegally paid under minimum wage and their salary does not cover the cost of food, clothing, healthcare and education. Adidas saves millions of dollars by hiring poor people in less fortunate countries for minimum wage or
less. Salaries Salaries for people in Great
Britain during the 19th century
were so low that all children in working class families had to work to support their family's. Workers had to face long hours and harsh working conditions only to get paid next to nothing. Salaries in the Industrial Revolution Hours Worked The average factory worker during
the Industrial Revolution spent 14
hours a day, 6 days a week and work Hours Worked during the Industrial Revolution The average worker during the Industrial Revolution spent 14 hours a day, 6 days a week, and work did not change with the seasons like farming did so they worked the same amounts all year. Workers in Indonesia lack any respect,
as they are verbally abused, slapped across the face, and have shoes thrown at them. In Indonesia, factory workers report that every day people pass out from exhaustion or from being overworked. If factory workers every try to fight for their rights or form union, they are punished and labeled as disruptive influences. Working Conditions during the Industrial Revolution Factories were rarely well lit or clean. Machines were dangerous and often injured workers, boilers exploded and drive belts often caught arms. There was no government system to provide aid in case of an emergency. Working conditions are described as very harsh in Adidas factories now and in factories during the industrial revolution. People are constantly injured, abused, paid low salaries, and constantly working tons of hours. Indonesian Workers revolt against their low salaries Children forced to work at the factories during the Industrial Revolution
