Child Welfare and Industry

During the industrial revolution technological advances greatly increased employment of all ages. Clark Nardinelli, author of Child Labor and the Factory Acts, challenges the idea that oppressing child labor was halted by the Factory Acts of the mid 1800s, and states that it was actually the increase in technology and household income that ended child labor.  This podcast contrasts the common view with Nardinellli’s view and applies it to over-all child welfare.
