well, they worked for money, and some were forced to work.
Hi there, a little more detail is:
Back in the 19th century Victorian children often worked for several reasons:
-they're mothers worked therefore could not be left alone at home, and instead
had to go work with them.
-they were forced to.
-they wanted to to prevent the fact of boredom.
-they lived in a poor family that had shortage of money tehrefore resulted down to
not having no food. They worked to earn money to prevent the fact of them and their family going through starvation.
-Mill owners often liked them to work because:
* They were small and could go under machines to fix broken things
*They had quick fingers and could fix things more speedily.
* They were cheap to have.

During the Victorian period there were no child labor laws. Children often worked in coal mines, factories, shipyards and on farms. They were also used as domestic servants, chimney sweeps, street sellers, pick pockets and prostitutes. Child labor was very prevalent and widespread in England during the Victorian era.
The poorest workers in Victorian Britain worked wherever they could find employment. There were agricultural labourers, unskilled factory workers, mineworkers and many more. Many women did piecework at home, such as making matchboxes or weaving.
People who were destitute and unable to find employment had little choice but to go into a workhouse.
This was primarily during the Industrial Revolution. Children were typically employed to work in factories, a lot of times being employed as young as seven years of age. They're hours would range from around thirteen to fifteen and they were treated horribly and beaten often. Nutrition and lifestyle were very poor, and working conditions didn't improve until around 1850; and even then the improvements were slow and hard-earned.
