1833 Factory Act
What rules about the child labour did the 1833 Factory Act impose?

*No child workers under nine years of age
*Employers must have an age certificate for their child workers
*Children of 9-13 years to work no more than nine hours a day
*Children of 13-18 years to work no more than 12 hours a day
*Children are not to work at night
*Two hours schooling each day for children
*Four factory inspectors appointed to enforce the law.
Does the Act appear to have been effective? Explain using evidence.

It did eventually, because it took a while for the laws to sink in to some of the factory companies brains that it is dangerous to have young children in a factory so some factories were reported and punished for disobeying the Act law set in place such as: employing young persons after 6pm, Employing two young persons without surgical certificates, employing women after 6pm and employing young persons after 2pm on Saturdays. But some did make their factories a safer place for children with education and reasonable hours work.
So it did eventually be effective
Give examples of harsh employment practices the Act aimed to eradicate.

Some harsh employment practices the Act aimed to eradicate was Child labour, such as
setting reasonable working hours for specific ages, Education, Breaks (eg Lunch and Dinner breaks), No working at night.
Women worked no longer than 10 hours for shifts in textiles and could not work at night.
Men had no laws put in place for them.

The 1833 Act was put in place to make it more safer for children under the age of 18 and having NO child work under the age of 9. And having women work same hours as children between the age of 13-18.
This made factory companies pay more money for employes which made Factory owners angry.
