Quickly after, it was a sudden technological transformation in America. The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing which started in Europe. Being influenced by plantation owners and their businesses others in Europe decided it was a time for change and new ideas started to emerge. There was a rise of wage labor with the help of the Industrial Revolution which helped benefit each group of people, money wise. In essence, with the discovery of the New World it helped shape the way it is now.
Because of this, the initial first response to this from the people in mainly city areas supported this because to them this meant more income from the overload of new job openings. Also this helped a large quantity of foreigners to take a liking to the increasing large amount of economic opportunities, which would lead to rapid urbanization, but they would soon find out that companies would only hire them for cheap labor because most likely they were not a legal citizen if they desired to work as fast as they could so that they had the ability to provide food on the table for their families. But that soon would become an issue because many of the workers for the industries were not paid enough especially for the amount of time they were sacrificing. As time kept ticking so did the industrial workers life line. The hardest part for the people who had these types of jobs was that there was a large amount of labor involved with very little pay and it wasn’t just men who worked these jobs, it was women and children 3 years old and up.
Stability and economic success were rarely found upon arrival in the west but with time one could find what they were looking for. People often moved a number of times in hopes that their next stop would bring them to their destiny. The continuous search for the mythic west caused a great deal of migration and transiency in the region. Although Barnes was a native westerner, transience also greatly affected their lives. Barnes usually moved seasonally and for better jobs for her dad.
“We paid a man from within the extended family or neighborhood to pretend that he is our mahram and to accompany us in public so that we could go to work. This was also one way for these men to have a job and earn money. In these cases, women’s secret work allowed men to earn money. But it was risky for both men and women because if the Taliban would have found out we would have been dead” (Rostami-Povey, 232). While these conditions were known to humanitarian organizations it did not reach mainstream media.
In addition to the increase in population and farming, trade began to make it’s return as well. Looking at the diagram from Document 6, you can see the various trade routes connecting Europe. The regions “had their own agricultural classes” (Doc 6) which would introduce new resources and goods to many, making lives more easier and pleasant. All of these traits of the High Ages make it clear about the difference of life in the medieval times, that the High Ages were vastly greater in terms of living
He wanted to be able to use his money to project himself around the world, while my parents yearned for further professional training, which culminated into many moves to new homes, as we moved from India, then the United Kingdom, and finally to America. While Willy chased after wealth to validate his status among his peers, my parents ventured after the possibility of being able to gain knowledge. In fact, the main reason behind my parents wanting to move to Lexington, MA was because my dad was offered a job at Lahey Clinic in Burlington as a gastroenterologist. Despite the fact my dad already had a stable job in Westborough, MA as a internal medicine specialist, he was fascinated by the field of gastroenterology, and decided to fulfill his dream of pursuing a specialty in the field of medicine. Death of a Salesman belongs in the American canon as the theme of success helps families connect with the common basis of wanting their children to acquire achievements.
Back then men were off to get married and in order to do so they had to show that they provided a good home and also provided enough money to support the soon to be wife and possible children even though it’s likely for the couple to have a child to continue the bloodline. Men were also expected to have a lot of knowledge and to go to school and get an education to then lead into a job. It was normal to see a lot of men doing hard labor since they were typically stronger than most women and expected to have a wife to have dinner prepared when they arrive home and to have the house clean. It wasn’t socially acceptable to see a man tending to the child and the house
Many of the people who emigrated to the US were known as “birds of passage” because their only purpose for immigration was to get a job, earn a sufficient amount of money, and return to their native land to support their family. The other immigrants also came to America to find a job, but their purposes were more long-term. Turmoil and low quality of life in Europe sparked a mass migration from places like Russia, Japan, Austria-Hungary, and Italy. Thus, this large number of immigrants provided a readily available workforce, desperate for any job that paid a wage. The effects of immigration’s role in the rise of Big Business are not just limited to the new technology and ideas from Europe, but also the increased belief in the middle class and urbanization.
Nichols captures the anxiety of a generation that was considering abandoning its predecessor’s footsteps in The Graduate (1967). The new generation exploring the transition into adulthood causes more issues than just immaturity, yet differences with the older generation such as parents. Mr. and Mrs. Braddock (William Daniels and Elizabeth Wilson) push him to attend graduate school, as that is what they were taught would make a man successful. The old generation was expected for a man to have a job and marry a woman who was a good teammate in which they have kids together. Whether the love was real was debatable.
In today’s evolving society, there are more people who marry out of love, though some still seek the practical needs that come with marriage. This makes the theme of purpose of marriage, for practical benefits or love, still relevant. Lastly, the theme of fitting into a social class is largely not relevant to today’s society. In the past, people’s lives were governed by their social class as their social class determined their occupation, way of life and dressings. Although social classes still exist today, such as the distinction of people based on their social incomes, the division that exists between social classes has declined in importance.
