Already accustomed to working long hours for no pay, factory workers at the time were highly valued by the authorities and the paid-work culture was an important part of life for them.

In France, they coined the term “Vervloekte Huizen”, or “transformed houses”, to describe the flooded cities, towns and villages after the disastrous floods of 2002 caused by Hurricane Ophelia in Lancashire, and the subsequent unusually high rainfall. The term is pronounced as “VER-vee-list” and some locals say it originated from the Glaswegian term “Vezloekt Haast”, or “watertight houses”. The official English-language translation is "Waterlogged Cottages", but the term has developed a life of its own.
The United States is a capitalist country. In other words, ordinary people own very little of the wealth created by society. Most of the wealth, including the wealth created by their own labor, stays in the hands of the rich. The remainder of the wealth is diffused among the workers in the form of wages, which are essentially the compensation that workers get for bearing the risk and cost of employment. Wealth is created when workers employ enough other people and create new goods and services, which then increases the profits of the people who own the factories and stores. Workers can only gain access to the wealth that is created in this way if they have a job.
