Child Labor and the Factory Acts

When people think of the Industrial Revolution some phrases that come to mind are booming industry, advancement and change, and the coming of a new era.  What most people don’t know is that there is an ugly side to this revolution dealing with the exploitation of children.  In this podcast, “Factory Acts: how life was for children and the way in which it was changed in Britain during the early 1830s”, by UWL students, Allison Deisting, Alexa Wood, Ashley Holubets, and Sarah Doern, based off the article Child Labor and the Factory Acts by Clark Nardinelli, we will discuss how the lives of children were and how they were changed throughout time.
