Question

Which of the following statement(s) is/are true regarding the condition of workers during the industrialisation of Europe?
  1. Work hours were often long with poor wages.
  2. Lack of proper housing and sanitation for workers.
  3. The liberal and radical employers were unaware of the importance of workers.
  4. Men and women workers were equally paid.


Solution

The correct options are
A Work hours were often long with poor wages.
B Lack of proper housing and sanitation for workers.
Industrialisation brought men, women and children to factories. Work hours were often long and wages were poor. Women worked in factories for relatively lower wages than men. Housing and sanitation were problems since towns were growing rapidly. These issues did not go unnoticed, the Liberals and Radicals looked for remedies to these issues. The liberal and radical employers were aware that the only reason they were able to attain wealth through trade or industrial ventures was because of their hard-working workers.
