Stephen is a poor laborer in one of Josiah Bounderby's factories. Stephen puts up with a lot in his life and bares it with a humble humility. His wife is a raging alcoholic and he is desperately in love with a young factory worker. Stephen tries to do the right things but never seems to get a break.
