The Industrial revolution
Hi I'm Jack, as a 10 year old living during the industrial revolution I do a lot of work in the factories, like operating with large and heavy equipment and sometimes it could get very dangerous.
Hear is your weekly earnings Jack.
One of the not so great parts of working here is that I get payed way below minimum wage some of the kids here don't even get payed.
Another not so great thing is we work 12 - 14 hours a day in these harsh conditions and we could develop severer sickness that could lead to our death.
Not until the Factory Act of 1833 did things improve. We children were paid only a fraction of what an adult would get, but that didn't take us away from working in the factories.
Factory Act of 1883
59,600 of the workers in the U.S. are under 14 and many other countries have huge child labor troubles. Child labor came from the Industrial Revolution and is still around today.
