The average pay was 75 pennies a week but most children only got 25 pennies a week.
Not unless their families forced them to. Children basically would go to work as soon as they were big enough but they were never forced to. Many families thought it would be a good idea for children to work even though they were paid less than adults.
The industrial revolution was an era of rapid and great change in industry and manufacturing with growth of factories. This began around the 1700's
The Industrial Revolution changed Britain from a land of small towns, villages and farms into a land of cities, large towns and factories!!
