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. The work was also dangerous with not much supervising by the government.Workers, on the other hand, had little or even no bargaining power to leave the unsafe conditions. Nowadays, When Americans only pay attention when extreme work strike, levels of abuse are the norm hidden in the factories around the globe. Although the condition seems much improved, consumers don’t know the true fact- “Today, American citizens simply cannot know the working conditions of the factories that make the products they buy.
According to the article “Tossed in space: NASA plans to farm greens on the moon.” NASA will soon try to grow small plants, such as herbs and beets. They also say that there are some factors that could affect this like the high levels of radiation and an almost absent atmosphere. What if we had no moon? The article “Top 5 Things We Would Miss If We Didn’t Have A Moon.” by Ethan Siegel explains about how we wouldn’t have eclipses, our tides would be low, and how our axis tilt would vary over a large amount of time. Of course without a Moon, we couldn’t have eclipses, because there wouldn’t be anything to get in the way of Earth’s shadow.
The Jungle exposed the horrific work conditions, the poor food quality, and the deceitfulness of the business owners. Working in Packingtown, Chicago was a nightmare because 99% of the jobs were very deleterious. Finding jobs were very scarce and there were not a lot of jobs that were great, so people had to take anything they could get. These jobs had no safety precautions or safety rules; employees got seriously injured daily and death would happen occasionally as an effect of on the job accidents. Some of the jobs were just detrimental to the employees’ health even without the accidents.
Looking at the past, and exploring technologies that have had an impact on society is a valuable tool for entrepreneurs. There is much to learn about the Industrial Revolution and how the technologies developed at the time played such a huge role. The Industrial Revolution first instigated in England, then spread like wildfire throughout the world during the 18th and early 19th centuries. The lives of ordinary people was transformed dramatically, by a series of engineering inventions and industrial achievements allowing industry to develop so fast that society could barely keep up. One of the major inventions that helped launch the industrial revolution was the steam Locomotive.
People were afraid and concerned since they had a major insufficiency of jobs, supplies and shelter. Many companies began to enforce wage cutbacks and increased workload. Relief was not being offered to all the unfortunate Canadians who did not have a job. Many people were laid off from factories which meant that supplies were scarce as not many people could afford to provide for their family’s, people turned to the government to find a solution. I believe that their expectations were much too high as the government was struggling too.
Tennent made apartment small to fit many immigrant family in to one apartment because the population was getting overcrowded in the city. Riis did research on people that lived in overcrowded homes and in bad condition, he investigate by seeing the role of the government in these neighborhoods he went through police and hospital record and found out that people were getting sick, especially children were mostly affected. Riis focused and saw that the living condition were unhealthy and unsanitary, that the apartment lacked pluming and proper ventilation. He found records that showed death rate in specific neighborhood in the city in 1888 he saw that death rate that year was 26.27 percent (Riis, p. 33). Not only was their high rate of diseases high, but also a high rate of criminality was high.
Another reason is that we wouldn’t have been able to see that Jupiter has 4 large moons, without it. Discoveries can mean a lot to humanity, that’s how we have evolved since, ancient times. His discoveries have made a big difference in the world. If it wasn’t for him we still would have thought that the moon was smooth, but with his telescope he saw that it had craters, valleys, mountains, and a geographical terrain. How his discoveries have impacted our lives, is that we would have had a little bit of knowledge of space, or even the universe.
The Dust Bowl was a hard time during the great depression. The Dust Bowl negatively affected people in a personal way. The dust was hard to keep away. People fled and left everything. The drought made things worst and the environment was horrible to live in.
Walter fails to fulfill his dreams of becoming wealthy due to multiple aspects of the Great Migration, including racism, poverty, and a lack of education for African Americans. Poverty in the black communities is a significant factor in why Walter struggles and fails to achieve his dreams. Many black families struggled with poverty in Chicago: roughly thirty percent of African Americans fell below the poverty line during this time. In addition to that, eight percent of African Americans were unemployed, compared to only two percent of white folks (Bogira). In A Raisin in the Sun, Walter must work as a chauffeur and Ruth, his wife, as a maid.
This problem was especially worse for immigrant workers as their belief in the so-called American dream has been worn down due to the misery they had to endure. Immigrant workers were limited of their freedom and constantly exploited due to the fact that they were working in hazardous working conditions, were living in deplorable conditions, and were being harassed under the intimidating power of corrupt politicians. Such miseries the immigrants had to face included the hazardous working conditions where they had to stay for long hours. There was no doubt that workers had either die or were injured as they worked in such environment. In Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, the dangers of working conditions are emphasized through Jurgis’ incident at the meatpacking plant.
You people may think they were real, or you might agree with me. I will show you many reasons why they were real. Like I said, the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landings were faked. Was Neil Armstrong even an astronaut? There is no real way to tell.
Households were tear apart when family members died because of the living conditions, which usually lead to a decrease in income. For Riis, it was impossible for a society to prosper considering the living conditions and closeness to death these people
Those footprints could have been any astronauts footprints if they had the same size shoe. Also several countries were tracking us then, but how do we know that we didn’t put the tracker on something else, and sent it to space. For all anyone knows, the United States of America government could have painted a painted a backdrop and made it into a movie. The pictures of the moon were miles apart and yet they still had the same background. How could this be?
Tuttle,Carolyn. Edited: Robert Whaples “ Child labor during the British industrial revolution.” .EH.Net Encyclopedia. August 14, 2001. During the Eighteenth and the early Nineteenth centuries, Child labor was a major part of the industrial revolution, especially in Great Britain where child labor was a large part of the working class and soon became a social and political problem/issue. In late Eighteenth century child labor became a necessary thing for the working class and society of Britain and other countries such as modern day Germany and America.Children were hired because they could do jobs the adults simply couldn 't do because of their sheer size and incapability to do certain things like clean chimneys and fix the machines in the
“...Our home isn 't real great. It’s rundown looking and everything…” (Hinton 163) The greasers live on the bad side of town. This evidence proves that they can’t have nice houses and finer things like the Socs and the middle class. The greasers are mistreated because cannot afford to have what others do. The greasers can 't walk alone without looking over their shoulders.
