Child Labour Mills

Children as young as 5 were hired as most were orphanes or looking for jobs to help with their families income. Factory owners needed supply of cheap labour, thereforeChildren were ideal. They were paid low wages and could do all the small and dangerous jobs. These facts about mills relate to the concept of society as it shows how the people treated their own chilren. It shows that the society would put their children at risk just so that they could get the work done. This resulted in a high number of deaths within the child generation thus making the life expectancy low.
Factory work greatly affected the life experiences of children, men, and women. For children, factory work served as a form of hard schooling. It channeled into adult factory jobs child workers who obeyed orders, worked diligently, and survived the health hazards and tedium. Mines
Women and young children hauled coal along dark tunels as this was a hard job that only small light people could do, it was to dangerous for men. In 19th centuary many children faced the dangers of working in coal mines. Children as young as 8 worked as 'trappers' opening the doors to let the trucks pass along the tunnels, this job was the cause of a lot of child deaths. They had to work 12 hours a day, for a small income and they had limited and specific times to go to the bathroom. These facts relate to the cocept of environment and society as it shows the harsh conditions the socieety made their children work through. It also shows that a lot of deaths were caused by the jobs the children had. Mines also caused a lot of pollution as they were using and digging a main fossil feul - Coal. Laws
Gradually, new laws such as the Mines Act of 1842 and the Factory Acts of 833 and 1847 changed all this. Today, we would be shocked at the idea of children as young as 8 woking for 12 hours a day. In the centuary, many young children worked in feilds. Other poor children laboured in textile facotries or in maines to help with the family income. The laws of child labour link to our concept of envirnment and society because it shows what measure some people went to just t free their children of such harsh condition. These laws odbioulsy began to bring the lif expectancy of a child up, and less employees resulted in less coal miners, which resulted in less polution. Humanities Arshia Jain 8C
