The Industrial Revolution is the first step taken towards faster, more reliable, and more profitable factories. It is seen as one of the first and largest leaps towards mass manufacturing processes in countries like America, Spain, and the United Kingdom. This resulted in needing many employees, so many companies turned to children who could do hard labour for a small price. Because of the amount of children working in the bad conditions, the United Kingdom government passed some laws called the “Factory Acts”. The sole purpose of these acts were to prevent young children from working in the conditions of a factory. The competition and economic freedom were the results of classical liberalism.
