The Industrial Revolution was the era in which machines changed people 's lives. The cheapest and easiest way to maximize output was to get children to operate the machines. The role of emotional appeal had a big effect in the abolition of child labour after the Industrial Revolution. Child labour was accepted during the Revolution, as well as child exploitation. A lot of deaths and injuries could have been avoided with proper labour standards. This essay will explain the importance of the emotional appeal towards changing the population 's perspective of child labour. I will be looking at the time between the end of the Industrial Revolution to the formation of the National Child Labour Committee (1830-1905). During this time, the perspective of child labour started to change. The primary sources used will be the Factory Acts, movies such as The Dark Side of Chocolate to evaluate the emotional appeal aspect of it, and books about the Industrial Revolution working conditions. The protests and demonstrations by the people wanting change will be examined. Next, I will explain how the masses of population started to support the change. Lastly I will show how change occurred because the population became emotionally attached to the loses from child labour. People had to become emotionally attached to the issue to push change.
