Sew Buttons?

"Annie, I think you've got the hang of it! You really know how to sew now!"

"It's not too hard."

"No, little girls your age were working in factories using threading machines ten times this size for 12 hours a day to feed their tenement families, and if they lost an arm or two - well, they just kept on working once the stumps healed!"

"My goodness!"

"...So think about how lucky YOU are, you only have a 7 hour workday and you make minimum wage! What a wonderful thing Progress is for children! Now finish this f***ing hem! Chop-chop!"
