Where can I find a quote that explains the working conditions inside of factories during the Industrial Revolution. I have been looking for awhile with no luck. The quote can be very long if need be.

Child Labor during the industrial revolution Today children go to school for 7 hours then come home and do their homework. Children these days work for their own money around the age of 15. Common jobs include small errands for neighbors or babysitting. The early industrial revolution lead to the exploitation of workers in factories and the conditions in the factories were ghastly. Moreover, these factories produced densely inhabited cities where many resided in atrocious living conditions.
