This paper covers the social, economical and agricultural reasons for the development of child labor during the British Industrial Revolution. The paper discusses the exploitation of children by greedy factory owners and the results on the children themselves.
From the Paper:"The British Industrial Revolution changed the social and economic life of Britain. It established a completely new way of living and working. Prior to the Industrial Revolution, Britain's economy was based on agriculture as its main economic activity. Because of the use of new food crops, such as corn and potatoes, and a decline in the mortality of diseases, Britain experienced tremendous population growth. The population growth demanded the production of more goods, which soon brought about the development of textile factories. These technological, agricultural and political changes led to the demand of more people which led to child labor in factories."
