How the Industrial Revolution affected life

The Industrial Revolution started in England and it was a time period when people started to use machines instead of doing work by hand. It made life better because people could make products faster and easier. Machines make products way faster than a person making products by hand.

Child Labor

Working conditions in factories were terrible. Child labor took place. Child labor is when young children work in factories with bad conditions. Children had overseers which hit them if they didn't work fast enough. Children worked in filthy factories that were very dangerous. There were no fire exits and the buildings were not safe. They had to work very long hours with very little pay.
