Stitch—stitch—stitch
In poverty, hunger, and dirt,—
Sewing at once, with a double thread,
A shroud as well as a shirt.
Thomas Hood

Sweatshop (or sweat factory) is a term for a workplace with very poor, socially unacceptable or illegal working conditions.

Quotes[edit]

  • Work—work—work
    Till the brain begins to swim!
    Work—work—work
    Till the eyes are heavy and dim!
    Seam, and gusset, and band,
    Band, and gusset, and seam,—
    Till over the buttons I fall asleep,
    And sew them on in a dream!

    O Men, with sisters dear!
    O Men, with mothers and wives!
    It is not linen you're wearing out,
    But human creatures' lives!
    Stitch—stitch—stitch
    In poverty, hunger, and dirt,—
    Sewing at once, with a double thread,
    A shroud as well as a shirt.
