Industrialization upgraded machines, but downgraded people’s health due to more pollutants getting put into the air. Along with this there were very poor working conditions that decreased people’s health. Upton Sinclair showed that industries should have safer and more sanitary working conditions before employing people to work and distributing their product, in order to decrease the amount of injuries and illnesses, in The Jungle. Sinclair wrote about how most of the machines in the factories were very dangerous. Many of the machines were run by the working men/women, so when a machine broke the man/woman working at it usually had to try to fix it.

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

Tenement life in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s was very difficult, it could even be called somewhat dangerous. Tenements were usually very small living spaces that contained no more than 2 rooms. Most rooms had 2 or no windows at all, the buildings were also built very close together on narrow streets. Some tenements had little ventilation, there was no central heating or air conditioning so the tenements were very hot during the summer and very cold during the winter. Tenements were not the safest place for a person to live because living conditions were very poor.
In the movie, Carlos and Luis were poor as Carlos was the only breadwinner in the family and the segregated environment they lived in had only certain jobs. There were some scenes where they displayed the lack of physical support such as since there was only one room in the house, Luis got the bed whereas Carlos had to sleep on the couch. Also, due to certain jobs, Carlos risked his life as the job he did was unsafe, low-income job but to support Luis, Carlos had to make living somehow.

The mMajority of people inon a rural areas had to migrate to the urban areas for employmentaiming for a job. This movement and, urbanization, was one of the negative effects that occuredwas issued during the Industrial Revolution. The citizens could not handle their own lives nor the overpopulated land. Their working conditions were very poor, “ Factories were not the best places to work. The only light present was the sunlight that came through the windows.”
The ambiance in which tenants lived, led to death or crime. Riis described that the children were “brought up in an atmosphere of actual darkness, moral and physical.” In addition to the absence of light and ventilation, the small rooms where families slept where dirty and crowded with viruses and infections. The likelihood of dying was extremely high back then. The death rate in 1888 was 22.71 percent.
There were too many disadvantages such as: many soldiers got sick and died, it made people depressed and angry, and there were extremely bad conditions and illnesses.

The citizens
They were regularly paid far less than the wages they were guaranteed, and subjected to the abuses of the employer-favored piece meal system of payment. (cite, 147) Additionally, braceros were often forced to pay for their room and board, often at exorbitant prices. This made it virtually impossible for them to save any money. (cite from film “Harvest of Loneliness”, go into depth)
Although black slaves were freed, they were really held down to the point where slavery might have been better option. As to being free and poor, black people starved to death, while living on a plantation food was provided for them. Race was a major setback in little Moody’s life. She was never afforded the nice clothes and food that white had due to her being in continuous poverty. She also learned how society was made to fit the needs of the “superior race” the white race and that race
