9 1800's Wages and Cost of Living - Food Prices The minimum wage in Nova Scotia will rise to $10.15, a 1.5 per cent increase from the present rate of $10 an hour. The minimum wage for an inexperienced worker, with less than three months' experience in the work for which they were hired, has also risen from $9.50 to $9.65. (Halifax NewsNet) $2.49 for a kg of sugar for personal use tonne refined/24.44 tonne raw Rum – 1.75 litres (spiced Bacaardi) Choc. Chips from 0.99 – 8.75

10 Would the profits on sugar and sugar products be higher if the industry did not have to pay for employees?

11 Economic concept with a high human cost People were thought of in terms of their ability to work A system where people were bought and sold as objects as would a table or chair Once bought or sold a person lost control over their own choices including children or families Requires one group of people treating another group as if they were not human – dehumanizes Makes possible prejudice and racism

12 Plantation Owners New England Merchants African Traders

13 Sugar Plantation Owners with ten strips of paper, 50 packets of sugar, and a bottle of molasses with a sticky note marked "2500 gallons." New England Merchants with 160 tongue depressors and £550. African Traders with 50 strips of construction paper.

14 Sugar Plantation Owners: You have ten slaves, represented by ten strips of construction paper linked into a paper chain. Trade "2500-gallon" bottle of molasses with New England Merchants for 160 tongue depressors (1600 yards of wood) to produce sugar

15 Sugar Plantation Owners: Sell 50 packets (representing 50 hogsheads or roughly 80,000 pounds of sugar) for £550 to New England Merchants. New England Merchants: Refine "2500-gallon" bottle of molasses into "1700- gallon" rum container; ship to African Trader. African Trader: Trade slaves for rum at the rate of 130 gallons for a man, 110 gallons for a woman, and 80 gallons for a child. Provide New England merchants with a strip of black paper for each slave traded. Note the slaves you have traded; the simulation coordinator will give you £5 for each man, £4 for each woman, and £3 for each child so you have the cash value of the rum. New England Merchants: Staple the strips of black paper into links of a chain. Sail to the Sugar Islands. Before landing, remove the link for every seventh slave purchased in Africa: they died on the voyage as percent of the slaves routinely did. Sugar Plantation Owners: Remove three links from your chain. You need to replace at least three slaves who have died this year due to illness, exhaustion, and a deadly accident at the mill. If you purchase three adults, you should be able to produce 50 hogsheads of sugar and 2,500 gallons of molasses next year. If you purchase more slaves, you will be able to produce more sugar and molasses. Buy slaves from New England Merchants at the rate of £80 for a man, £70 for a woman, and £30 for a child.

17 Sugar Plantation Owners: For each adult slave, trade 250 gallons of molasses with New England Merchants for 16 tongue depressors per slave (160 yards of wood) to produce sugar. Sugar Plantation Owners: For each adult slave, sell five packets (representing five hogsheads or roughly 8,000 pounds of sugar) at the price of £11 per packet to New England Merchants. (If you have ten slaves, sell 50 packets for £550; if you have eight slaves, sell 40 packets for £440; but if you have 12 slaves, sell 60 packets for £660, and so on.) New England Merchants: For each of the 250 gallons of molasses that you purchased, refine it into 170 gallons of rum; ship all your rum to African Trader. African Trader: Trade slaves for rum at the rate of 130 gallons for a man, 110 gallons for a woman, and 80 gallons for a child. Provide New England merchants with a strip of black paper for each slave traded. Note the slaves you have traded; the simulation coordinator will give you £5 for each man, £4 for each woman, and £3 for each child so you have the cash value of the rum. New England Merchants: Staple the strips of black paper into links of a chain. Sail to the Sugar Islands. You decided to pack more slaves into the ship, but more of them died (typically percent death-rates occurred on "tight-pack" slave ships). For every ten slaves you purchased, remove four links: they died on the voyage. Sugar Plantation Owners: Remove two links from your chain. You need to replace at least two slaves who have died this year. If you purchase more than two slaves, you will be able to produce more sugar and molasses. Buy slaves from New England Merchants at the rate of £100 for a man, £90 for a woman, and £40 for a child.

For each adult slave, trade 125 gallons of molasses with New England Merchants for 16 tongue depressors per slave (160 yards of wood) to produce sugar. Sugar Plantation Owners: For each adult slave, sell three packets (representing three hogsheads or roughly 4,800 pounds of sugar) at the price of £20 per packet to New England Merchants. (If you have ten slaves, sell 30 packets for £600; if you have eight slaves sell 24 packets for £480; but if you have 12 slaves, sell 36 packets for £720, and so on). New England Merchants: For each of the 250 gallons of molasses that you purchased, refine it into 170 gallons of rum; ship all your rum to African Trader. African Trader: Trade slaves for rum at the rate of 100 gallons for a man, 90 gallons for a woman, and 70 gallons for a child. Provide New England merchants with a strip of black paper for each slave traded. Note the slaves you have traded; the simulation coordinator will give you £5 for each man, £4 for each woman, and £3 for each child so you have the cash value of the rum. New England Merchants: Staple the strips of black paper into links of a chain. Sail to the Sugar Islands. You decided to purchase fewer slaves and provide them with slightly more space and exercise; historically this reduced death rates to between five-ten percent. For every ten slaves you purchased, remove one link; this slave died on the voyage. Sugar Plantation Owners: Remove two links from the chain. You need to replace at least two slaves who have died this year. If you purchase more than two slaves, you will be able to produce more sugar. Buy slaves from New England Merchants at the rate of £70 for a man, £60 for a woman, and £25 for a child.

New England Merchants: Staple the strips of black paper into links of a chain. Sail to the Sugar Islands. Smallpox strikes your ship. For every ten slaves you purchased, remove eight links: these slaves died on the voyage. Sugar Plantation Owners: Remove ten links from your chain. You need to replace at least ten slaves who have run away to freedom this year. If you purchase more than ten slaves, you will be able to produce more sugar. Buy slaves from New England Merchants at the rate of £90 for a man, £80 for a woman, and £45 for a child.
