Industrializations negative effects were bad working conditions, long and strenuous hours, injury and even death took it role on the society during this time. First, during the industrial revolution, bad working conditions were almost for sure. So many people had been stuck with a dangerous job, and on top of that the way they worked was even worse. Even little kids had to work in these terrible conditions. Children were forced to work where adults had a hard time working, mostly things that were easier so that way it wasn’t too complicated to where they couldn’t do it or slowed production.
Some children work in factories and other workplaces in the “formal economy;” however, many work on farms or in homes. Child labor has many hazardous effects on the health of children. Some children work in areas such as stone quarries, tanning leather, and electroplating metals. All of these working conditions endanger the health of the child. Children in different occupations face different fatal diseases.
The factories were unsafe as well, so not only were workers receiving low wages, but they also were putting their lives at risks. Women’s hair would get caught in machines, limbs would get stuck in a machine, and children would fall... ... middle of paper ... ...labor in sweatshops. Jane Addams and Jacob Riis increased awareness of problems in child labor. Others also exposed business abuses that put the safety of the workers at risk. Sanitation issues, fire hazards, and machines quality were all brought to attention and eventually addressed by President Roosevelt.
The children and people who work at workshops are constantly mistreated. (a) Many children are abused when they work at sweat shops. They are forced to work in uncomfortable positions or for a long time. It comes to be abuse when the children are not physically able to perform the job correctly because they are too young, and it may damage their bodies. They cannot stop working because they might be threatened for their lives.
However, physical and sexual abuse is another serious concern of many of the sweatshop workers. Most of the sweatshops run by Nike contractors are factories located in relatively small spaces to save on real estate costs. They are often soiled with dirt and kept unheated to save on expenses. Broken glass and dangerous equipment is left on the floors causing potential dangers to any people scattered within the factory. Employees are subject to harassment and violent punishments if work is not being completed as thoroughly and efficiently as the contractors would like.
When new inventions arose to facilitate the producing and mass-producing of goods that supplied the people of Europe, nearly everyone was forced to begin a new career within a factory. These are just some of the hardships that many loyal, hardworking citizens were faced with. The reverberations of these new inventions caused a dramatic plummet of the life expectancy of an average citizen to an alarming 15 years of age. Women and children were expected to work up to 16 hours a day and doing labor that could cause serious injury, like carrying extremely heavy loads. For their work, they were paid ridiculous wages, women around 5 shillings per week, and children about 1.
The industrial revolution was a period during the 18th and 19th century in England where many changes had happened. Such changes consist of agriculture, mining, transport and technology which allowed both detrimental and beneficial impact on people lives. At those times the working surroundings for many people were harsh, also for the children. The children have to start working at a very young age, they work without any protection and they have been treated very poorly. Not only that the amount shillings they make, barely makes a difference for their family to survive.
Child labor, an illegal course of action that increases work rate, production, and most of all, profit. This method of mass-production began in the early years of the Industrial Revolution. A big cause of child labor was the big business owners needed people to work in their factories; they chose children because of their relatively low level of education, lack of knowledge of their human rights, and accepted low pay. The employers should have a responsibility to tell the children their rights, what they’re doing, and what they’re getting for it. The worst area in the world for child labor is in third world countries, because the children are dropping out of school so they can get some money so they don’t starve to death.
Forced child labor from a young age can be extremely demanding of the child. If a child is working from a young age, they will not know that what they are doing is bad for them, because they won’t know anything else but work. This is abusive to the child mentally, but these jobs can also be abusive physically. Certain jobs have children weaving rugs or putting small parts together in a factory. One source says these jobs “can put intense pressure on children’s finger joints and cause lasting damage” (Opposing Viewpoints Online Collection, Gale, 2014).
It almost eliminated the poverty factor in Germany due to the vast availability of employment. But along with the attributions of industrialization also came the bad. Poor work place conditions lead to work place abuses. Workers were forced to work long hours for little pay and even children were abuses during this time. Some of the abuses were children as young as 7 could be seen in work places, sexual discrimination was present.
