The factory system occured in the 1800's and it affected children and women. It affected children, parents who worked in factories were paid very little and long hours. So the children began to work, children went to work in stead of going to school or doing things children are supposed to do. This affected the U.S because children would not have a child hood or learn, but this was later made illigal so now this won't occor to children today.
The factory system produced more jobs for people in the 1800's, the factories need a lot of people to work the machines and this created more jobs for people.
