Was there child labor during the Industrial Revolution?

Answer

It was not uncommon to have child labor during the Industrial Revolution. Many children worked without getting paid and worked for as many as 19 hours. It was not uncommon to see six-year-old children working during the Industrial Revolution. During these long hours that children were required to work they worked in bad conditions, around dangerous and heavy equipment, and it was known that many children were either injured or killed. Typically, during this time it was children who were orphans that were forced to work. In 1833, the Factory Act of 1833 came into play which helped to improve these conditions.
