Working Conditions-Simply, the working conditions were terrible during the Industrial Revolution. As factories were being built, businesses were in need of workers. The wages were set as low as possible because people were willing to work as long as they got paid they would work 14-16 hours a day with no breaks for 6 days a week the majority were unskilled workers, who only received about $8-$10 dollars a week, working at approximately 10 cents an hour. Skilled workers earned a little more Women received one-third or sometimes one-half the pay that men received. Children received even less. Owners, who were only concerned with making a profit, were satisfied because labor costed less.
Living Conditions- As business began to boom and the national markets grew, more people began to move to the Northeast because they wanted jobs. Most people lived in the "slum" there was about 9 people to one room not much space at all basically bed to bed more people got sick as well. Because everyone lived in terrible conditions and so close to one another, diseases spread rapidly and lack of medicine and medical care resulted in many deaths At the time, population was increasing rapidly because of more people moving in, so apartments became more crowded and in worse condition. These were the people that lived every lives that had to fight for jobs and competed to live. this lasted for around 100 years
