One aspect of how the Industrial Revolution dramatically changed the world was the rise of the sweatshop. While sweatshops provided jobs, workers toiled long hours in dangerous, unhealthy conditions. This book examines the daily lives of sweatshop workers and related issues, including the efforts made to reform substandard conditions.

Review:

"The Series reflects a variety of occupations, time periods, and global perspectives. The table of contents and index make it easy to locate what you want. There is enough detail for a student to compare workers of today with those in history. Recommended."
--Library Media Connection, October 2005 (Library Media Connection 20051001)

"Each book combines authoritative, easy-to-understand text, average-quality black-and-white photographs, and primary-source quotations to tell what life was like for a painter or factory worker during his respective era...Frequent boxed excerpts from newspaper articles and quotes add authenticity. Students will find plenty of research material in these titles."
-- School Library Journal (May 2003) (School Library Journal 20030501)
