Yes, and those 12-hour days for a few cents a day were fabulous. And those lazy-ass 11-year-olds should be grateful to have a dang job.

Yep being a business owner does require a lot of sacrifices.
Oh yea those were the exception and not the rule. Food Motor company, E. I. DuPont and others treated their employees fairly and paid them an honest wage.
Yes the garment industry and the coal industry were3 abusive but that was changing as machines were doing more and more of the work men use to do.
You see it was a lot like slavery. The farming machines were putting slavery and the slave business out of business. It was becoming cheaper to by one machine that was able to do the work of 100 slaves and in half the time than it was to maintain slave labor.
I have worked in several companies where the machines enabled us to cut back to a 4 day work week. When machines are able to out produce demand then it takes less time to do the same amount of work and people are not needed to work as long. Oh yea and as production quotas are met the company is still able to pay their employees a better wage. Oh yea I only work in non-union shops. Why should I be forced to pay someone else to sit on their lazy asses telling me that I have to go out on strike? Really what sense does that make. I have never been under paid and I work 50 weeks out of every year. No Strikes and no union dues.
I have family members who are Union Members and I earn more money over a 4 year period then they do. They go out on strikes at least 2 to 3 times during any given 4 year period which while out on strike they don't get paid. Meanwhile I am still working and I am still getting paid every week.
