Transcript of Hardships of the Industrial Revolution

By: Lauren Parr Hardships of the Industrial Revolution Machines in the Industrial revolution injured many workers. Many workers were missing fingers and sometimes even arms that were taken away from them by the harmful machines they ran. The factories and coal mines were dirty and poorly lit. The disgusting conditions spread diseases throughout the factory. Also in both the factories and the mines there was little to no lighting. Many worked under candle light. Many workers were killed by frequent accidents in coal mines. Accidents were common among the mines, safety ropes would snap leading people to their death and explosions killed many. Long hours made life worse for the workers Women and children were cheap sources of labor that would work late, up to 16 hours a day and sometimes even more. Young children were beaten and verbally abused by their bosses Many children were beaten just to stay awake and they were verbally assaulted to work harder. Workers would go deaf from the loud machinery A lot of the workers went either completely deaf or partially deaf from the extremely loud noise they were around all day. Women working in coal mines had complications with child birth later on in life The woman in coal mines would have a rope tied around their waist so they wouldn't fall, the rope distorted their hips so when they grew up and had children their hips weren't correct so many died in child birth. Women and children were paid pennies if they even were paid. Women and children were cheap labor in desperate need of jobs so they would work for pennies just to support their families. Some children were orphans that didn't get paid because the business "provided" food and clothes for them but these necessities were below average. Bibliography
