Why Working Conditions Matter

Working conditions around the world do matter. Some people don't have the life you have. Some working condidtions around the world are horrible. Some make $2 a day, some people even die in factories for you beacuse they need money. People need to focus on this topic. It can be deadly to some.

City of Orphans(my lit circle book)By: AviMaks Geless(main character)Maks Geless is a newsie making 2 cents a day working long hard hours.

Powerful quote from lit circle''You say they all look innocent, 'cept they all look guilty too." - Maks Geless

"...Families work from sunrise to sunset for little more than a dollar an hour."

"Low wages make it impossible many of them to afford housing."

"20 to 30 million people around the world go to work in dangerous pits, chipping away at rock faces are hauling massive loads of ore, all for the promise of a dollar or two a day."

" 'Children have no buisness in the work place.' "

    I like your video and your pictures a lot. It really shows a lot about child labor. I think you just need more details from the book showing how working conditions for your character is. Other than that it was really good!
