The Victorian Era: Child Labor

Many children started to work around the age 5, the same age children start school today. As long as the child was big enough, they would start to work right away. Even children that were small could do something as little as feeding chickens. Most of the older children worked in factories while the younger children did things around the house.

Many children were poor and worked to help their families.But, only a few people thought this was strange or cruel. Others thought it was necessary because if you dont work you dont get money. The factories were excited about hiring children because a child was paid alot less than an adult.
