What is the industrial revolution?

The industrial revolution was a time when products began being made by machines. It was also a time when working conditions were harsh because children and adults were forced to work long hours with low pay. The industrial revolution started in England and moved to Germany. Although the industrial revolution caused a lot of damage it also created many work opportunities and made many inventions, if it wasn't for the industrial revolution we may not have the modern inventions we have today.

Child labor/ working conditions

The working conditions were unfair and harsh. The workers got unfair wages and were forced to work long hours. Women were forced to work while they were pregnant. Children had to go in machines to fix them while they were running , most resulted in injuries. Children were also forced to work long hours and were treated like adults with harsh working conditions.
