Assuming that you are comparing peasants in feudalism to factory workers during the early industrialization era, you could say something similar to this: Akin to the life of peasants, factory workers endured harsh working conditions with little compensation and were often provided a place of residence by their superiors.

When working under harsh environmental conditions such as working in open air, allowances must be granted to the workers. Usually these take the form of relaxation allowances. This is additional time to relax to make up for working under excessive environmental factors such as heat, humidity, noise, dirt, lighting intensity and wet conditions.
