The Industrial Revolution not only transformed the everyday life of people in a positive way but had an overall negative affect to the people who lived and worked in Britain. Young children were made to work long, tiring hours in very unsafe work environments for little to no benefits. This was also a time period for new inventions, overcrowded cities, diseases, and social change. During the time period of 1760 to sometime between 1820 and 1840, the era known as the Industrial Revolution occured. This was a time period in which underlying changes began to happen in agriculture, textile, metal manufacturing, economic policies, social structure, and transportation (Dickens 1).
The front doors of the factory would always be locked because the owners Isaac Harris and Max Blanck thought one of the employees might steal something from the factory. When they tried to go downstairs, the flames of the fire burned them that prevented them to try leave the building. The factory owners were charged for manslaughter after the fire. A few years later they were acquitted and let out of
“It was back breaking, it was finger-numbing. It was particularly rage-inducing not because it was painfully hard work, but because children hunched over hour after hour, squinted at the threads, cleaned one collar after another, one cuff after another, one arm piece after another until the piles were depleted,” (“My Life as a Sweatshop Worker”). These are the words of Raveena Aulakh, a Toronto Star reporter who worked undercover at a Dhaka, Bangladesh garment factory. The extreme environment illustrated in the reporter’s account develops an image that is known as a sweatshop, which is commonly defined as a shop where workers are employed to manually produce goods at extremely low wages for long hours under substandard conditions.
In Chamber 1, in August 2007 six miners got trapped underground after an earthquake at the Crandall Canyon coal mine in Utah. The rescue team began the rescuing mission by placing seismic listening devices above ground and setting off dynamites which was a indication for the miners below to start making noise in any way possible. This resulted in failure with no sound being caught by the listening devices. Afterwards, six boreholes were drilled in different areas of the mine, so oxygen sensors, cameras, and microphones could be placed inside. This plan also failed due to misreadings of the oxygen.
The shift between a rural to an urban society or from an agrarian to an industrial society can be significantly marked with the age of the Industrial Revolution. Taking place between 1760-1860, this revolution was a time which gave rise to the power of machinery, factories and mass production, which would lead to the development of numerous inventions which would change their respective industries for the better. However, it is important to note how this significant shift from an agrarian to an urban society essentially had its roots in Great Britain, and exactly what inventions were prominent in leading Britain and the rest of the world to commercial industrialization. When it comes to understanding how the Industrial Revolution came about
This can be backed up because in the first and second article it states that people were made to get up at the crack of dawn to start working in the fields and they would stop working in the middle of the night, people were given a very small salary too little to live off by, and people did not have much to eat after the hard day of work. In the article it states : The work was tedious beyond measure, and painful. Weed-clearing crews worked all day bent over. Workers who stripped the cane of its sharp-edged leaves went home each afternoon with cut and blistered hands. They also had to deal with wasps that infested the fields.(1)
This can lead to severe illness, like lung problems, and it can even result in death. According to Lewis Hine’s report, “… two breaker boys of 15 years… fell or were carried by the coal down into the car below. One was badly burned and the other was smothered to death” (Doc B). This reveals the dangers and harsh realities of child labor. It shows how children were badly injured and sometimes even killed.
In that period, children as young as six started to be employed in the factories and coal mines, mostly in inhuman conditions with long hours, however they could gain little payments. 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.
In these two reports, both writers are trying to bring attention to their nations of how horrible these situations are; they will fight for the protection of children during this time period, for better hours for those who are of age to work, and to make sure nothing like this ever happens again.
The Industrialization had bloom during the late 1800s early 1900s. This big growth was a positive and negative impact in the United States history. This began the devastating practice of child labor. Children would work in factories for very long hours be paid very low wages or not even be paid. According to Harold Goldstein, ‘’it had been accepted as a norm, employment of young children gradually came to be viewed as harmful and exploitative in the United States.’’
Photography is the art that captures moments in history which store more than a thousand feelings and memories. Due to the second industrial revolution, many positive such as more jobs, opportunities, and a better standard of life took place in society. However, aspects like injustice and child labor came to the scene as well. Men and women were subjected to hard and incessant labor, and kids were put to work as well. Due to this type of injustices, the social reform movement started.
