Still the work hours were very long and the working conditions were horrendous. Russia in the early 20thcentury seemed to still rely on the use of child labor more than England and Western Europe at the same time.How does the length of the workday compare in both countries? How does the structure of the workday compare?In the first article, describing the workday of a young woman in an English textile factory in the early 1800s, the average workday was from 6am until 7pm – 13 hours a day, seven days a week. Sometimes when the textile factory was under pressure to create more products, workdays lasted as long as 16 hours a day. Their only break was for 45 minutes at noon for lunch, for other meals they could only get itwhenever they could.In the second described the work conditions of woman in Russian factories in the early 20thcentury. The average workday there was ten to eleven and the half hours a day, in some factories the work day was 16– to 18 hours on Saturdays. They only had breaks for breakfast and lunch, with no dining area to eat. In tobacco plantations the workday was as long as 22 hours with only a few minutes breaks.What was the disciplinary treatment for both sets of workers?

I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
