Child labor is one of the major problems existed in the late 19 centuries factories. From the picture we can see that factories hire boys around the age of 10 to work in factories. Boys at age of 10 are not fully competent for factory jobs yet by today’s standards. The children in the picture have no protection garments, and their workers clothes are dirty. The crate at the left corner that keeps the bolts and nails doesn’t seem very sturdy. The aisles for walking are narrow and not much space is in the factory. This could be dangerous because the children can easily fell on the machines. Children often have to work more than the normal 8 hours a day we now have and they were often dragged out of school to work in factories to support their families. The boy who is sweeping the floor in the picture, doesn’t seem too happy about working in the factories.

The only garments that kept her from getting hurt are her clothes and an apron. In the picture the lady is wearing a dress, and that dress could impede her movements. We can conclude from the way the lady dressed in the picture that the factories doesnt have specific dress codes for safety. The working environment can be described as messy, unorganized and heaped. There is little room for the worker to move about and crate and boxes are everywhere. The weaving machine looked bare and dangerous. Workers can easily be hurt by these machines, and we can speculate that there were no safety codes in the factories and the machine doesnt go throw safety inspections. Even though many women joined the industrial work force, the majority of the women still remained at home doing chores....
