During the industrial revolution many people wanted change in the form of labor Reforms. The poor didn't make enough and had no power in the government. Leaders like Edwin Chadwick and the Whigs were groups that helped make acts. They limited the apprentices hours to no more than 12 and underage children weren't allowed to work. Its a gradual movement that was effective. The movement was gradual and effective.
Modern day counter-part
A modern day counter-part is the strikes to raise minimal wage. People want social change just like they wanted in Great Britain during the industrial revolution. The cost of living is high and people can't live off of minimal wage. Acts that were passed back then are laws that we use in modern day.
