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.
Children also began to work in mines and lost their education at young ages. These children often developed health issues such as “miners’ asthma” due to the bad air in the mine. Not only was the work laborious and dangerous, but miners also received low pay. The majority of profits went to those who owned the mine (Doc 1). For those who worked in factories, life wasn’t any better.
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.
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.
By the start of the twentieth century, there were three times as many people as there was at the beginning of the previous century. This led to a huge shortage of housing and work, for people to earn money towards their family budget. As there were too many workers in industries, each person was paid very little money and because of that they all had to work for very long hours. Therefore, children had to work too as they were expected to contribute to the family budget. Their size was often taken advantage of as they were sent to do very dangerous jobs which adults could not do for very long hours.
The Industrial Revolution was a time of change. The growth of factories replaced the home industries and started the development of large cities. These growing cities with their factories created changes not only to the people’s working conditions but also to the transportation and type of labor. There were many positive economic changes and advancements however, along with those positive economic changes there were many negative changes to the social life and the workers overall health. 3Life in the factory was most challenging for the first generation of industrial workers who still remembered the slower and more flexible pace of country life.
It became a success because of new technology that was invented to increase the population and secure its safety. Liverpool's industrialization became a success because new ideas and inventions affected the size of population and development of Liverpool. Due to the new uprising of cotton and woolen textile industries; not only did it bring forth new ideas and inventions, but it also caused riots among laborers because they couldn't find jobs (because people were replaced by machines). It started off as a manufacture done at home. They had to go through different stages like sorting and cleaning, in order to make a product.
Children had no choice but to face the harshness of being part of the work force as they needed to support their families. By and large, children did work equal to that of adults, but the work was much more dangerous to the incompetent children. For example, Mary Paul, a 16-year old textile factory worker writes “I am at work in a spinning room tending four sides of a warp which is one girl’s job” (Document 1). In addition, the vast majority of factories employed children in dangerous positions such as this, creating a hazardous environment. As well as this, the complex machines were often difficult for the children to operate due to their small size, yet they were still expected to do work equal to that of an adult.
Many changes occurred during the 19th century with the industrial revolution. The revolution, if we can call it that, started in Britain with the introduction of new machinery that substituted man power. These new machineries, first in the textile industry and then in others, were used in factories to create mass productions, of textiles in the case of the textile industry. This new ability to create mass production of textiles very quickly and with the quality of the most expensive textile in the market, created great changes, not only in Britain, but also in other countries. The prices of textiles drop drastically, which made is possible for poor people to afford it.
The most important thing it accomplished is that the women had the opportunity to work in places other then the house and to get paid for it. But on the other hand it did have many negative effects too. Many of the factories were very dangerous and they paid very poorly. Because the family didn’t get enough money for living with only the parents working many children had to work too. The children got only 1/10 of the money what a grown man earned.
