BC: THE END!
FC: The Little Informational Book On Urbanization By: Kelsey Mix
1: Urbanization is the physical growth of urban areas as a result of global change.
2: Children worked in factories and a lot of times they would get hurt because of the awful working conditions.
3: On March 16th 1832, Michael Sadler thought the kid should get a break! | He tried to make a bill that would create a 10 hour work day for kids aged 9 to 18 , a lunch break, two hours of free time on Saturday,and a ban on working all night for children under the age of 21.
4: But sadly, not everyone liked this bill so it didn't pass. The kids were sad because this means they would still have to work a long time each day.
5: So the children continued working all day with no breaks and little pay!
6: Even though his bill wasn't passed, it led to members looking into the issue. This time around Sadler formed a committee in which he was the leader and talked to 89 workers, and got their opinions of working.
7: His report was finally published in 1833.
8: The report led to increased pressure on the British government to protect children worker's rights!
9: Thanks to Michael, life in factories was greatly improved!
