Victorian factory workers faced a very hard time; they had to work for almost 12 hours daily with only one day off in a week. Factory conditions were also not vital, they had to carry out a tremendous amount of work at low wages in smoke and loud machine sound surroundings. They often got ill due to this smoke and no care was taken of them.
