The definition of a sweatshop, according to the US Department of Labor, is any factory that violates two or more labor laws such as those pertaining to wages and benefits, working hours, and child labor. There are still thousands of factories in developing countries with sweatshop like conditions that remain in the world today. Since the 19th century industrialization era, factories have been exploiting their workers in the harshest of terms.

In these manufacturing empires, the rich prosper; however, this good fortune is not passed down to those who suffer grueling work conditions in sweatshops. The cruelties that were suffered during the Industrial Revolution could have been avoided earlier with government intervention, but because of growing laissez-faire economics, people were wary of any government intervention, even when it came to protecting their fellow citizens. Even though the Industrial Revolution did have some long-term benefits, the process by which those benefits were arrived at was cruel, and in this case the ends do not justify the means.
