The Industrial Revolution, although, helped us take our economy to the next level, created harsh lives for the young workers that worked in the factories. The factories were unsafe because in “History of the Cotton Manufacture in Great Britain” by Edward Baines, it talks about how the children that worked would get eaten by the spinners and overlookers and had the same food every day while working 13 to 15 hours. By getting beaten everyday and working up to 15 hours a day they had weak limbs, making them grow inmobil and crippled. In the testimony of Joseph Herbergram, he stated that he, too, had damaged his lungs and leg muscles, couldn 't carry the weight of his own bones and became crippled. His damaged was caused by the dust in the factory
Ya it is kind of hard for me and my family because my dad has infection and his ankle broke a year ago, his shoulder was broke at about 2 years ago and it still not fully healed. Now his heart is skipping beats. His one lung is all scared and his other lung might be getting that bad too. I just wish the doctors would figure him out. It is hard because my dad has lost over 65 pounds in less than a weak.
The most inhumane thing about diseases is that humans spread them to each other. In Tuesdays with Morrie, Morrie mourns for himself every morning because of the horrible disease that has taken over his body (Albom 56). Morrie’s disease has caused almost all of his physical capabilities cease to exist. This disease caused Morrie to lose some of his humanity. In Night, Jews being held in concentration camps were constantly catching diseases.
Adam and Eve were banished from The Garden of Eden. Adam was forced to work for the rest of his life and his labor was extremely hard and painful and Eve was cursed with labor pains when bearing children.

Eventually the guilt became too much for her and she ended her own life. MacBeth went down fighting, but regardless he went down.
I feared the worst while I was sitting on the table and when he walked in with a intense looking face I knew it was bad. The doctor told me I had torn my hamstring and it was so violent that it came all the way off the bone bringing some of the bone with it. This meant months of being on crutches and a year of physical therapy. I was depressed upon hearing the news and was sad knowing I probably wouldn't be able to play baseball that year. I was on crutches for six months and physical therapy for another seven months slowly making progress day by day.

The time of when cotton factories were running was not safe for children or anyone for that matter. This was a time of hiring people to do the dirty work and get hurt. Children working at the mills were beaten, abused, malnourished, and much more. The cotton mills should have never existed with this kind of abuse happening inside the factories. The fact is that these mills were bad for the health of the workers both physically and mentally.
There were fights, vandalism of property mainly in the school of “Martin Luther King Junior High School”.

Back in history, many leaders are overthrown and killed because corruption of power. Due to the fact, power was not distributed properly to the people they often feel uncomfortable and leads to rebellion. Yet, power corruptions are common these days, it is proven that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely by history and in modern days. In George Orwell’s Animal Farm, Lord Acton’s statement, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” applies to much of the rulers in Animal Farm that show dictatorship and violence. The corruption of power in Animal Farm has gone badly.
My father’s health also worsened during this time. His right foot began to swell from the long walks to the Justice Center in Downtown Cleveland to visit Larry, and this affected his work. One day at work, a mental health patient brutally attacked my father. He could not get away fast enough because of his injured foot. My father died just days after his attack.
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
