In the beginning Lowell Girls entered the work force of their own volition. They used the income to pay for their brothers to go to college, to support themselves while getting an education, or just to earn extra money for themselves. As the Industrial Revolution progressed, this became the only choice for women to make any money. They were suppressed under harsh working conditions with no options for bettering their lives.

The Waltham-Lowell System was a labor and production model employed in New England in the early 19th Century. This was the first time all stages of textile production were completed in one location outside of the home.
They received high wages between 2 and 4 dollars a week, so they stayed. hope this helps :-)
Because the Lowell girls made up almost 75% of the workers in textile mills, many of the women joined the American labor movement in protest of the conditions of the factories they were working in. The Lowell Female Labor Reform Association was formed as the first female union for workers during the industrial revolution. These women were crucial in forming strikes to get rights for women working in mills and factories at this time.

The Lowell factory system made people move into cramped and unsafe cities and buildings. They worked long hours with no breaks (10-12 hours) It was a huge change from just being on independent farms to being in a big city. Also, the loud noises were unbearable. The machines were also very unsafe with lots of exposed moving parts. Another big change was that there were girls working the machines. Usually, girls didn't work. It was also very hot because the windows were kept shut. For more information, look at this website: faculty.uml.edu/sgallagher/Mill_girls.htm
