Industrial Revolution The Industrial Revolution was a major turning point in the 1700-1800’s that still affects us today. The Industrial Revolution created factories that generated poor working conditions, child labor, and spread of disease. The Industrial Revolution was negative. Even though it produced new inventions and things that help us, it killed many people and children that were forced to work. It promised good life, but it did not show it. The factories during the Industrial Revolution were almost impossible to work in, the conditions were dreadful. The workers had very little, if any, working wages and made eight to ten dollars a week. Women received half of what the men made and the children received even less (http://firstindustrialrevolution.weebly.com/).
