Children work in awful conditions, where people don 't care about the children 's safety. The photo, by Lewis Hine, shows boys sorting and separating the coal from slate rock (Doc B). Sorting and separating the coal from the slate rock was not a very safe job. The boy’s fingers would callous and cut by the coal and slate (Doc B). According to Lewis Hine 's report, "... the air at times is dense with the coal-dust, which penetrates so far into the passages of the lungs that for long periods after the boys leave the breaker, he continues to cough up the black coal dust" (Doc B).
On many of Enrique’s attempts, he rides atop trains and forms alliances with potentially dangerous gang members to avoid beatings by other criminals. Despite these friendships, Enrique is still beaten so badly on one trip that it leaves him with permanent physical damage to his face. However, the book also tells of dozens of other migrants who are mutilated or killed in train accidents, raped by coyotes or gangs, or robbed, beaten, and left for dead. In addition to these perils, many migrants drown or die from dehydration or asphyxiation during segments of the trip. Many migrants refer to the train as “El Gusano de Hierro” (The Iron Worm) and “El Tren de la Muerte” (The Train of Death) (Nazario, p. 71).

The Jews went through many harsh events at the concentration camps that they were forced to go to. The concentration camps were extremely tortuous for these people. The living conditions were unbearable and the forced work was tremendously exhausting for them. They were starved to death and also killed in the gas chambers if they weren 't good enough. No one should ever go through this horrible pain in their lives.
Auschwitz and Dachau Genocide Elie Wiesel may not have experienced Dachau, but all concentration camps were overwhelmingly terrifying. Every prisoner witnessed their own traumatic story that would scar them to live their everyday lives. The pain and excruciating trauma they faced in the camps made death seem like the best option. Elie Wiesel was a young boy that witnessed the death of his father and lived every day questioning if his mother and sister were still alive. The things he saw have caused great distress and pain in his life.
In one case, his positive description of them even led to the Natives experiencing a great deal of hardship. Because of how hardworking the Natives were Columbus ended up enslaving them to work in gold mines. Many of the Natives forced to work in mines worked until they died of exhaustion. If they didn’t work hard enough their hands would have been cut off. If natives resisted enslavement they would get their
Just earlier this very year, there was a horrible fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory where 146 workers perished. Some died from the fire and others from jumping from the windows in order to escape it. Triangle Shirtwaist has brought the plight of these poor workers to the forefront as the public takes notice of the lack of safety measures in place at not just this factory, but many similar workplaces, and demands that something be done to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again. I believe one of the first steps to creating a safer workplace is having government regulations in place that prevent the mistreatment of workers and ensure that employees can escape in case of emergency. The regulations themselves should not be just broad, but address the many issues that workers face in order to give the workers the safest and healthiest working environment possible.
1 Diseases Today I want to tell you about the diseases in World War one. Many of those diseases led to the dead of the soldiers because they had little knowledge and medicine. The conditions in the trenches were horrible. Little foot and fresh water, living in wet trenches, no medical care were the cause of those diseases: Trench foot, trench fever, gas, trench mouth, venereal diseases...Soldiers were sick, hungry and were exposure to the elements of nature. World War one was a really bloody affair.

The population decreased by about 15,000 people, the gas is what killed the most. Last of all, the city was destroyed by rocks that built up to 8.2ft, it was so heavy it collapsed on roofs destroying peoples homes, trapping people inside. Gases and ash were about 570 degrees fahrenheit which killed many people because it was that hot. Effect on people, effect on city, and how the city was destroyed are all interesting facts about the magnitude of the eruption in
Background It all started as a young boy, he was born Charles Panzram on June 28th, 1892 in East Grand Forks, Minnesota. Carl’s Parents Johann “John” and Matilda Panzram were German immigrant farmers and he was the youngest child of six, four brothers and a sister. Carl’s father abandoned the family and left Carl’s mother with the burden of the children and the farm. At the age of seven, Carl was put to work out in the fields with his brothers and they beat him often for making mistakes and sometimes for no reason. “Everybody thought it was alright to deceive me, lie to me, and kick me around whenever they felt like it, and they felt like it pretty regular” -Carl Panzram (Borowski, 2012).
Jurgis burns his hand while working at the steel mill, because he is a child, he’s not familiar with all the labor laws. There was a significant gap between laws on the record in corporate America and job enforcement. Technically speaking Jurgis as permitted to receive some help from the corporate company to compensate for his wounds. Unfortunately, Jurgis was not aware that he could complain about his wounds resulting in some sort of payout or compensation.This revolves around power inequalities, the people who are poor and can’t afford an education aren’t well informed about the laws. Now, after reading the Jungle by Upton Sinclair, I am truly surprised that our country managed to evolve into one of the strongest super powers in the world
