Parents would often send their children off to work instead of school because the family needed the money and there were no laws that stated children had to go to school. Usually factories would hire children because they were more managable, cheaper, and least likely to strike. Many children lost their lives while working in the dangerous conditions of these factories. They also lost fingers, limbs, and other ligaments or broke bones while working.
