Research has shown that the average age at which children started work in early 19th-century Britain was 10 years old, but that this varied widely between regions. In industrial areas, children started work on average at eight and a half years old.

There was, therefore, considerable variety in the age at which children started work, with those in the industrial districts typically starting work the youngest.

All children laboured under the same disadvantages, though, working for very low pay, performing work that was dirty and dangerous, and usually working long hours as well.

Even at the end you fail,

Make an effort!

The term “child labour” is often defined as work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development. It refers to work that: is mentally, physically, socially or morally dangerous and harmful to children.

Children were generally employed because of their small size in mines and other workplaces. They were forced to work because they came from poor families who did not have enough income.

The working conditions are very harsh: in particular great insecurity (in the mines, or exposure to smoke); children are ill-treated (malnutrition) and sometimes work more than 12 hours a day.


In the worst forms of child labor (hazardous child labor) children are working with dangerous machinery in an environment of toxic chemicals. Some children are even working as slaves.
