The Industrial Revolution that took place during the victorian era of England was characterised as being a time of mass expansion and modernization. The world was changing and thus effected the people of these times. The invention of steam engines and the development of cities changed everything for the people living in the nineteenth century, including social interactions and events. Although this time can be portrayed as a fanciful time of invention and development, many people suffered great injustice due to the need for labour and the greed of the upper class citizens. Child labour spiked and many families were left below the poverty line, which cause a significant spike in criminal related activity.
World War II greatly stimulated America’s economy by creating millions of jobs and nearly wiping out unemployment. Due to high levels of industrial outs, wages were also increased. Since WWII caused the economy to grow rapidly, things started to change within American society. WWII had a major influence on changing American society because the growth it caused in the economy allowed African Americans and women to seek new opportunities. Since the men were away fight in WWII, women had to take over as industrial workers in factories.
Regarding politics, the Industrial Revolution greatly impacted the world by establishing child labor laws and supporting imperialism. At the start of the Industrial Revolution, children as young as six years old were working in factories. Conditions were exceedingly harsh; they worked very long hours around extremely dangerous machinery at a premature age (Doc 4b, Byerly). Do to the lack of child labor laws, children were put at high risks of growth defects and their fingers being dismembered by machines. Because of these conditions, the first child labor law was enacted in 1819.
According to the chart in Japan 1892 “Average daily wage of a female silk factory worker is only 13 Sen.” (Doc C) female workers get pay only 13 sen a day. this amount of paid was not enough for living because at that time a pair of ladies indoor sandals already cost 7 Sen. It is just not right to pay the worker with little money especially when the workers spend all their day in the horrible factory conditions. A survey of the Japanese Silk Worker “70% said the pay was good and 0% said it was poor, overall experience 90% said it was positive.” (Doc F) . Almost everyone said the pay was decent and none of the workers were complaining about the wages.
I think that English textile factories were bad for the health of the working class families because in Documents A and C it says that Children were getting hurt constantly, were beaten, over worked, and never had time to eat In document C, John Barley was abused and when someone came to interview them, they had to lie about their treatment , he also worked long hours and their breakfast was very little. When Birley was abused, his boss thought he was dead. When he went to go hit Birley, he quickly put his arm up to protect his head and his boss hit him with all his might. John had A broken elbow and marks. He said “ I bear the marks, and suffer pain from it to this day, and always shall as long as I live…” They also never got fed properly
Factory workers were severely impacted socially and economically during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries due to horrendous working conditions. A report from the Meiji Government in Okaya, Japan in 1900 revolved around the long hours and harsh conditions that came with factory work. An average work day consisted of thirteen to fourteen hours, where workers would wake at 4:05 AM, and go to work until 7:30 PM; in which they would only receive 3 breaks of 10-15 minutes from their total of 14 hours and 20 minutes of work. When it was particularly busy, workers were even kept until the late hours of 10 PM (Document C). The purpose of this report was to display the intense working conditions people would have to work through, which consisted
The textile factories were an unsafe and unheathly place for working class families to work. These factories were unsafe for children to work because the factories would over work the children,give them a insuffient diet and the factories were filled with diseases. For example a testimony from Joesph Hebergram to the Sadler committee he said; ‘i have damged lunges. my lgs muscles do not function properly and will not support the weight of my bones... the doctor told me that it was caused by dust in the factory,from being over worked and a insufficient diet.
Child cotton workers were exceedingly unhealthy /The state of the health of the cotton evidence factories for children is much worse than...in other employments. " In the document A :Dr.Ward source House of the Lords committee ,Dr.Ward said accidents were very often admitted to the rilmary through the children 's hands and arms getting caught in the machine. Children who labor in the mills are victims of frightful oppression and killing toll, they have often been crucially beaten by the spinners of the overlookers. This proves the unhealthy nature of the factory, since the children were getting their body parts caught in the machine and getting beaten,"turning crippled." "Last summer I visited three cotton factories with Dr.Clough of Preston and
Outsiders are somewhat and are heard as an outcast, but today that isn 't the case. People are alienated when others become isolated from their surroundings. In revolutions and various pieces of literature outsiders are abused by authority and therefore alienated. Often in literature, authors tend to show how certain characters abuse their authority leaving the outsiders alienated throughout the story.
Textiles during the Industrial Revolution By Tylah Roser The Industrial Revolution is the modern history of changing agriculture, the hand crafting economy, and the creativity of machine works. The Industrial Revolution occurred from 1750 to 1901. Things that arose during the Industrial Revolution were more housing, improved transportation and factories to make the production process faster. What is textiles? Textiles is the development of knitting or weaving of cotton to create clothing or goods.
The industrial revolution was a time when humans started to use machines instead of raw manpower. Instead of goods being made in people's homes they were now made in large factories. Exportation of goods increased and so did ways to export them. Steam engines, textile mills and other machines were invented during this time. For factory owners and businessmen life was good because they would make a large profit from the factories production but for the factory workers life was horrible.
