    Child labor was a social problem in late eighteen-century England, where employment

    "Child labor was a social problem in late eighteen-century England, where employment in factories became virtual slavery for children." (Azar Grammar book)
    1. Is this sentence correct?
    2. Should I add the THE before "late"? - in THE late eighteen-century England
    3. Can I change the word "where" to "when" because it refers to *late eight-century* England, which is a TIME?
    4. Between "where" and "when", which do you prefer?

    Thanks!

    1. Yes, except that eighteenth is misspelled. You've spelled labor as we do in AmE; in BrE, it's labour.
    2. No. That would be incorrect.
    3. No.
    4. Only where​ is correct.
