The Industrial Revolution
Written by Noah Garcia
The Industrial Revolution is maybe the most important time period of our history. Without it, we might not have lightbulbs, trains, planes, or even technology itself. There was a badside to the Industrial Revolution though. More slaves and also children had to be hired because the machines worked to fast of a production rate.
Child Labor was kind of a problem because kids were working in smoky factories with dangerous machines and little pay. Not all kids were working though. They only had to work if they wanted to, needed to, or even told to. They usually needed to work for money for their families like adults.
