They had come to the cities looking for a better life but all they found was a job that paid them so little they had to work long hours to make ends met, forcing their children and wives to work in terrible conditions. The terrible conditions worsened their health which was only accelerated by the poor living conditions, the only conditions they could afford. The factories owners held an iron grip on these people's lives, forcing them into conditions unfit for humans only to make a profit. The Industrial Revolution changed the world but it was driven first and foremost by greed and the lives of workers were sacrificed in the march towards
People complain about pollution from factories, cars, global warming, and the melting of polar ice caps, yet many people disregard the dangerous that come with fracking. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, and/or boreholes to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking is causing an epidemic economically and environmentally. Fracking is continuously destroying the earth day by day. From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting.
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. The cities were poorly constructed and crowded with people and residents.

Introduction: According to the Encyclopedia of Management (2009) sweatshops can be defined as environments or factories that provide opportunities to the less-fortunate people in a country. Sweatshops can be classified as a place of employment where the working hours are long, the conditions are harsh and the wages provided are very low compared to the average wages of the country in question (McDermott, 2013). Most sweatshops also have strict laws and policies that the workers have to abide to, and they are often subjected to some form of abuse if they do not obey these laws properly (ibid). In general, the phenomenon of sweatshops is usually received with negative connotations.
Sweatshops. noun. a factory or workshop, especially in the clothing industry, where manual workers are employed at very low wages for long hours and under poor conditions. A word that has been characterized in the media as one to conjure up images of back-breaking labor paired with meager pay and poor desolate souls that toil for hours on end. Today, I am here to tell you exactly why that characterization fails to explore the extent of the impact that sweatshops have had, not just on their workers, but also on the consumers that purchase the goods used in these sweatshops.
Frostbite is the number one hazard for these people in the winter, followed by illnesses from the cold and hypothermia sometimes resulting in death. Homeless people often worry about freezing to death, reported by many homeless people themselves. A homeless man in New York City states "Life is hard because of the things that I have to go through, just trying to survive, you know, trying to put food on the table so to speak,” he says. “Winter makes a lot of things rough for me... It’s too cold.
The operations have raised troubling questions about water quality and threat to public health. “Manure from factory farms often contains majority of heavy metals, lake-choking nutrients and deadly pathogens such as E. coli. In fact, wherever factory farms have concentrated industrial piles of manure in small space, big trouble follows” (Dr. Paul Hasselback). Local citizens are concerned about the amount of untreated waste it creates. According to a U.S. survey, people living downwind from hog farms, where such factories originate experience more headaches, runny noses, sore throats, excessive coughing, diarrhea and burning eyes than residents of communities without hog factories.
The reason ice and cold represent instability and inhumane activities is because Victor first created the monster in a very cold, icy place and also in the season of winter. Ice and cold also represent lack of love and affection which was in the case of the monster. The second the monster came to life Victor is filled with the horror at what he had done. “How can I...black lips.”
There were many appalling prison camps during the Civil War, but the most infamous was Andersonville. A shocking 13,000 people died in this camp(Bartels). Andersonville was run from February of 1864 until April of 1865. When the North found out about what happened at Andersonville, people were outraged. They wanted justice, and so the man running the camp, Henry Wirz, was tried and hanged for war crimes(Kohn).
Imagine living in a refugee camp. Every day you work really hard trying to get a job, and provide for your family, but to no avail. Every night you are extremely tired, but have a hard time sleeping because it is freezing cold. You wake up again, and go through this cycle of trying to get a job, house, and sleep. Hoovervilles are very similar to refugee camps.
Cholera had initially touched base in Britain, from Chinese importing ships, in 1831. The poor got to be powerless to Cholera, since they dwelled in swarmed lodging. Cholera could without much of a stretch spread in extensive urban areas, in particular London. Streams in these urban areas were allotted a double reason. The waterways were a wellspring of H₂O as well as, a sewage transfer.
The ghettos of World War II were set up by the Nazis in attempt to close Jews off from the rest of the world. The German Nazis created more than 400 ghettos in order to contain the Jewish people, which the Nazis believed were inferior to them. The ghettos were a terrible way to treat the Jews. It was degrading for them to be labeled and separated from all other human race. The ghettos of the holocaust were a death sentence for many Jews.
Trail of Tears Native Americans experienced a dramatic change in the 1830s. Nearly 125,000 Native Americans who lived on inherited land from ancestors of Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida were all cast out by the end of the decade. The federal government forced the natives to leave because white settlers wanted an area to grow their cotton. Andrew Jackson (President of the U.S. during this time) signed into law, the Indian Removal Act, authorizing him to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi River in return for native lands within state borders.
