the life of an 18th century worker the factory workers were underpaid and couldnt even make enough money to afford food or rent, they worked an immense ammount of hours for cheap and their lifes were nothing but monotony and exhaustion

the life condition of the factory worker

the workers were placed in houses near the factories, the so called "mashroom houses". these houses lacked of basic services such as clean water and proper sanitation, the air and the water were polluted. also, these small houes were built in hughe rows which meant that most of them were overcrowded with too many workers and each of their respective families

many families needed an addictional income and were forced to employ their children. kids were paid less than an adult even though they often performed the same tasks. this made the owner save money over personal hiring. children were also more convenient as emploiers since they were easier to control(being more obedient) and they were hired mostly because of their size: their tiny hands could reach easier the parts of the machines to fix rather than the hands of an adult. the tasks that they were up to were very dangerous and often led to a short life.
