This created new industries that made the growing cities a source of wealth in England. However, urbanization also had negative effects. The working-class neighborhoods were filthy, with no ventilation between houses that were badly constructed. This caused problems with the public health. The public health in England was incredibly bad in the first half of the 19th century.
The environment condition was bad with smokes surrounding them. The release of harmful gases into the air from factories pollutes the world 's air, doing harm to the environment, further leading to global warming. Then, though it did boost many job opportunities, the living condition of the workers during the industrialization were poor. Company towns owned by business were rented out to employees. The owners forced them to live in isolated communities near workshops and forced them to buy goods with high interests.
In the following quote from the Homestead strike reading is a reflection of what happened, “The Battle at Homestead will be remembered as an occasion where human greed and civil rights collided and neither one came out on top” The Homestead strike made the Industrial Revolution more harmful because it lost many lives that didn’t need to be lost. Carnegie company was one of the richest ever and it couldn’t afford to give poor men and women a small pay raise. Also, they created a horrible situation by sending in the Pinkertons to do their dirty work. The amazing thing is that Frick had a huge mansion ten miles away but he still had to starve families. In conclusion, the violent labor disputes made the industrial revolution more harmful and lost unnecessary

Reformers are those people who not only took notice of the problems but also took actions to amend them. Society was such a mess that most citizens were in danger, be it from food unfit to eat before it was further defiled by workers and animals in the abhorrent circumstances found within most food-processing factories, illnesses spread through closely confined living quarters lacking ventilation or necessary access to bathrooms for basic hygiene, corruption, and bribery inherent in the structures of political machines, or discrimination

Manorial Injustice From the beginning this system was corrupt, powered by the greedy and evil of lords, for a thousand years this system stood and crushed those of the lower working class. In every aspect of peasants life it has been assigned to them by birth with no way to rise in the pyramid of power and become anything more than their class. From their living conditions, military, and even their clothing there is inequality for peasants. The Manorial system was an unfair and unjust system that lead to the derailing of European Middle Ages. The primary difference in living conditions between the two classes is their living quarters.

In 19th century this children exploitation was rise up. Children began to important worker after the slaves. Children uses like a adult and they did not have any protection and rights in European country. On the other hand, this conditions caused growing opposition and also inspired by the literature.
Many admitted to being beaten when they were late as children, having only an hour off at noon to eat, and children had to work in the poor and often dangerous conditions. In the same interviews presented to Parliament, a worker reported working from six in the morning until eight at night, an average of fourteen hours per day for mere cents, and that was during the ‘normal’ production months. Long hours, low wages, and child labor were nothing new to the poor, but the conditions still took a toll on families. Hours and hours went into work, which left little time for a family to spend time with one another, and children not able to learn skills from their parents once the industrialization of the common world came into play, not only in Britain but also on a worldwide scale. Many Europeans moved across the sea to the Americas to find work when jobs were taken back home.

Work at these factories became unsafe and the pay was bad, they could only blame one person and that was the owners. People of this time saw these business owners as either villain or hero, witch side of the scale do Andrew Carnegie falls on?
Finally, the cruel punishment of the workers in the workplace is seen in the previously mentioned, “Concentration of Industry, and Machinery in the United States,” Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science. “They [the labor class] reproach the machine with exhausting the physical powers of the laborer; . . . [t]hey reproach it with demanding such continued attention that it enervates, and of leaving no respite to the laborer, through the continuity of its movement .
The textile factories were an unsafe and unheathly place for working class families to work.These factories were unsafe for children to work because the factories would over work the children,give them a insuffient diet and the factories were filled with diseases.For example a testimony from Joesph Hebergram to the Sadler committee he said; ‘i have damged lunges. my lgs muscles do not function properly and will not support the weight of my bones...the doctor told me that it was caused by dust in the factory,from being over worked and a insufficient diet.’this shows that the factories were an unsafe place for working class because they over work their employes and do not give a proper diet.This evidence shows first hand evidence of what happened
