  3. In the year of 1833 the government of England passed the first Factory Act to greatly improve the working conditions for child labour in factories. Young children were working in factories for long extended periods of time with little to no breaks so the act did as follows:
    • No child workers could be under 9 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.

    But the children that were being treated badly didn’t stop being treated this way overnight it was a gradual thing to keep the children safe and the government would yet to make more acts to make work a safer place.

    The 1833 factory act was established as a normal working day in the textile industry a working day for a 13-18 y/o was to start at 5:30am and to cease at 8:30pm but for a 9-13y/o was to start at 8:30am then to finish at 5:30pm and no one at this age was to be employed at night.

    In 1833 the government of england put a factory act for children and had the following provisions:
    • Children 9–13 years could work for 9 hours a day with a lunch break.
    • Women and young people now worked the same number of hours. They could work for no more than 12 hours a day during the week, including one and a half hours for meals, and 9 hours on Sundays.
    • Factory owners must wash factories with lime every fourteen months.
    • Ages must be verified by surgeons.
    • Accidental death must be reported to a surgeon and investigated.
    • Thorough records must be kept regarding the provisions of the act.
    • Machinery was to be fenced in.

    The political result was very good for our future but the factory owners hated it. The workers would’ve been very pleased with this act because it was making their life easier.
    Life changed very dramatically for workers everywhere because they had more time for inventing new things and more time for leisure.
    The parliament of the united kingdom were the people that moved that the factory act to be put in place.
    The life for entrepreneurs changed a lot because they had more time to build things and also had more people interested because the workers had more free time.
