Working Conditions of the industrial revolution

primary source : Actual witness.

the working conditions were terrible during the Industrial Revolution. As factories were being built, businesses were in need of workers.

The town conditions were horrible , alot of homeless people in the world and everything was close together.

These workers were willing to work, even if others were not because of unfair treatment. This lessened the effect of the labor unions since businesses had no shortage of workers. This is why most labor unions were unsuccessful.
