It was simple for capitalists to cut costs in terms of labor because workers depended on holding a job to survive. As a result, working conditions worsened, and wages decreased substantially. In Zola’s Germinal, the working-class Maheu family faced horrible working conditions in the coal mine. The conditions are described using these gruesome terms: “At the bottom of the shaft, it had been very cold, and in the haulage roadway—through which all the air in the mine passed—an icy wind blew, whipped to a storm by the narrowness of the space between the walls.
The air in the mills, filled with cotton dust made people cough and sometimes lead to pneumonia. One benefit was that workers were given their own houses, yet all their family was crammed into one small room and the house was usually dirty and its water supply polluted. To make things worse, the mill owners taxed the worker’s family on how much water they used. To the workers, the mills were satanic and to furnish this idea, the industrial revolution, along with the mills, sparked revolts across the country. The workers considered mills as satanic as there were not many benefits to be pleased
It was also the people who worked there that are to blame because they locked almost all the doors in the building which trapped people in the rooms. They also had no lights on in the stairwell which confused people and made people fall done and get trampled to death by other workers. These were some examples of explicit text mentioned in the text. Some implicit details
According to Perry, Capitalism caused many people hardship and pain especially the working class who suffered pay cuts because machines were starting to replace human power. Factory labor was very strict and harsh to the workers, everything was done according to schedule (135). Workers spent twelve to fourteen hours a day, six to seven days a week, in the factories. Other than the harsh conditions of the factory itself the children working under those circumstances were being beaten and abused very frequently which only added to their pain and suffering. According to , the children thought that if they were not beaten regularly they would not have worked in the factory.
Have you ever just had a bad day maybe you're sick and you just feel miserable all day or you forget your coat at home and end up being really cold all day, or even forget your lunch money and you can't eat for a while. The jews that got put in the ghettos felt worse then that every day of their lives and the worst thing was they had no hope, they couldn't just go to the doctors when they were ill or have options of food everyday. The nazis made their lives miserable and i'm going to tell you how.

In Cambodia, many prisoners were tortured through cruel and unusual ways. These tortures were so excruciating that many people confessed to things they didn’t do to make it stop. The soldiers of these camps placed the prisoners in small, lonely jail cells, tied up and unable to move. Since they couldn’t move they were unable to get to a toilet or any of the other hygiene amenities. Not only that, but the food there was little and barely edible (Pierpaoli).
At that time, that disease would be fatal. They were living in an endless cycle of poverty whilst aristocrats where enjoying their lavish lifestyles by doing little work that was as hard as the peasants.

In Document 7 it displays a lot of the air filled with bad pollution from the factories. Bad air is awful for people to be inhaling, people can get sick from breathing in the unpleasant air. In Document 10 the appearance is that of a man who is big and his cart says “CHILD LABOR EXPLOITER.” Underneath that, there is a bag with a money symbol then another money bag. The children are pulling him while looking thirsty and exhausted.
The picture shows all of the pollution in the air and the water. It shows all of the pollutants from the factories through the smoke stacks and shows the water from the factories leaking into the drinking water for the whole city. (Doc. 11) All of the diseases that can come from the bad water and air are all factors that lead to the short life expectancies. Even if people are not necessarily working in the factories, they are still very open inhaling and consuming all of the waste coming from them.
There was working camps and death camps. It was terrible because every prisoner was starving or dying from disease (http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org). Some of the diseases were scurvy, typhoid fever,dysentery, and Tuberculosis (http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org). Prisoners got sick very easily because they were not eating proper food and didn’t have good shelter to keep them out of the cold. Prisoners in the concentrations camps stayed and slept in the brick or wooden barracks (http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org).
Consequently, many rich Americans believed in this view, and used it as an explanation of why some are poor and some are rich. Additionally, a similar view is expressed in Progress & Poverty, written by J.M Dent. (Doc. 11). In Progress & Poverty, Dent explains that an uneven distribution of wealth will aid social progress, because it will drive people to work harder, which in almost all cases, never worked, and only caused social unrest and strikes. Conversely, some politicians fought for workers’ rights and developed legislation in response.
These deaths occurred because of diseases and afflictions resulting from the crowded conditions, lack of adequate shelter, poor water supply, and nutritional needs not being met. Deaths also resulted from violence within Andersonville. This violence came in the form of gunshots from guards killing prisoners crossing the deadline and from violent encounters within the prison community itself, including six executions carried out against individuals convicted by the prisoners themselves. The hell that was Andersonville finally ended with the South’s surrender April
During the time between the Civil War and the end of World War I industrialization was a big part in the economic, social, and political development of the United States. All three developed the way they did as an effect of industrialization. Economically more money was made from more manufactured goods. Socially living conditions became different. Politically more laws were passed to address problems.
