I thought that Tim might become a clerk, like his father - hand writing invoices, letters and ledgers quickly and accurately.

Being a clerk wasn't necessarily the best paid job, but since it was clerical rather than physical, it was a route into the middle classes. With the support of his family and of course his "Uncle" Scrooge, I think that Tim has been able to secure a good education and a job that will leave ultimately him comfortably off, if he sticks with it...

Glad to hear that safety violations are taken seriously here... those early steam age machines were dangerous enough without being left alone.

(This already looks like a great series!)

True, I ended up reading way more than I ever wanted to about factory accidents and some of the horrific injuries they inflicted on people.

(My original plan had been for Tim to witness one, but I didn't quite have the heart... )
