The BIG Question on Charles Dickens and Child Labor
My big question is, What would life be like if there wasn't a law passed against child labor? I think life would be very difficult. Less children would be in school and more kids would be working. Back then kids were forced to be chimney sweeps, in textile mills, and pick pockets. If we had to do jobs like this then we could have serious issues, health and physical. Kids back then got serious lung, heart, and back problems. Kids could have also died in chimneys and also could of died just cleaning under machines that wasn't turned off. There would be a smaller population and more kids defected. Also there would be more kids homeless or in adoption homes. So I think if congress hadn't passed the law and President Roosevelt hadn't signed it then life would be terrible.
