Well, as you know, we won't "do your work for you" on this site, but assuming you are talking about C19th Factory Reform, you will find basic information about the laws that were passed here:

There are links to information about all the Factory Acts from 1802 to 1891 on this page:
http://www.spartacus...Rchild.main.htm (scroll down)

I'm afraid I can't quickly find a site with information about how pay in the mills improved during the C19th, but there was no such thing as a minimum wage in the C19th and workers' wages were not controlled by government laws, but by what the employers were prepared to pay.

Anyway, I hope that helps a bit and if you have further/particular questions do post again.
