There were now many openings for jobs as well, as employers needed many workers during this time to work in these factories and mines, to make sure that they produced great results. However with all these positives there comes negatives and these all begin with child labour. The Industrial Revolution introduced child labour as a cheap-effective way to get work done, and since then it has left a print on our world. This is evident as children would often work approximately 12-14 hours a day for a very minimal wage with little to no breaks. Many children also suffered many different injuries such as a variety of physical deformities and many lung diseases because of the contaminated air which they breathed in frequently, trough their young, childhood years.
In this materialistic age, it is very common that both parents go to work. According to the statistics showed, “the proportion of mothers who were employed increased from 55% in 1991, to 56% in 1996, 59% in 2001, 63% in 2006 and 65% in 2011.” (Baxter) Once, after parents come back home after work, they find the house in a chaos, then they will start to complain that their children do not help them to do housework. Although childhood should be a period of relative freedom, but the parents should teach children from an early age to learn to do housework because there are many advantages that children can learn from housework. Nevertheless, there are some pros and cons when children help with household tasks since they are young, but I believe that the pros are more than the cons.
The subject of sweatshop and child labor is one of great controversy. The first thought to mind when speaking of sweatshops is probably a vision of sketchy factories in far off Third World countries such as Bangladesh or China working their employees 15+ hours a day in cramped up in a dust-filled space for little wages. Not in America though, right? Most Americans would be horribly upset if they found out they had been unknowingly supporting a business that uses sweatshops to produce its merchandise. Odds are though, businesses that exploit such labor are being supported in every shopping trip a person takes whether it be shopping for groceries, clothes, jewelry, or athletic gear.
It would also be harder for immigrants and people with less advantage to find jobs. Companies only hire workers if they are beneficial, and hiring many workers when the minimum wage is high would not be beneficial. This would make it harder for minority groups and immigrants to find jobs in the US, or get used to being a US citizen. Immigrants can also live a better life if they manage to get some working experience, resulting in a better job, but they would not have this opportunity anymore. In addition to that, raising the minimum wage would not do anything to combat poverty.
At this moment and time American trade is a huge and very complex issue. Children in third world countries are forced to work in unsafe factories for 12 hours at a time just to meet sales demand. These children are suffering just to make enough money to barely survive. As of the time that the Loc Tran case was written, American trade policy revolved around the use of child labor. In current times this has not changed at all.
Revolution is defined as the changeover in use or preference and the information and communications technologies revolution has probably been the most evident revolution in recent years. Technology has the ability to achieve a lot and it has breakthroughs everyday but people should concentrate on using it to solve issues in today’s society. One issue that can be solved by technology and it is currently evolving is education. Education is a big problem in our country because of the lack of qualified teachers but the revolution of technology and educational applications can solve this problem by decreasing the reliance on teachers. Statistics show that the output of teachers is short by 15 000 per annum and approximately 7 500 teachers are currently teaching even though they are unqualified.
In the poem “The Chimney Sweeper: When My Mother Died I Was Very Young”, written in 1789, the poet William Blake focuses on young children working as chimney sweeps. In the early 18th century it was common for London that most chimney sweeps were young boys because of their small height that made it easier to climb into a chimney (Slage 64). The fact that adults take advantage of children working for them, is a phenomenon that people have considered not only in this time. This essay reveals the conditions of a child working as a chimney sweeper in Britain in the 18th and 19th century, based on the poem by William Blake, and focuses on the danger of child labor. Moreover, it is to be discovered how the laws have changed towards this issue in the 21st century.
The initiative acts to promote practices that reduces child labor and protects them. By 2007, the international cocoa initiative supported the construction of 497 classrooms, helped train 391 children and much more. "ICI has worked in more than 1,000 cocoa-growing communities, where it has supported more than 3,000 community development actions to benefit more than 1 million people, more than half of whom were children"(International Cocoa Initiative,2014). The reason behind these projects is to safeguard the child 's right and to prevent children from being baited by the cocoa industry. As a result of ICI’s assistance, more than 50,000 of these children now have improved access to quality
The Industrial Revolution was in the early nineteen century, it made Britain stronger. It was first created to raise people’s quality if living. Daily things for people to use or wear become more . Before the revolution, people lived on farms or small towns and villages where there was lack of resources and manufacturing. Farmers might spend their day working while women spent their whole day making cloth or other house using products by hand.
To conclude my research, I believe I have proven that creativity matters in education. Without creativity, who knows where mankind might end up. The children of today are the future of tomorrow. If creativity is not exposed to them, just picture yourself living in a society so dull, you wouldn’t be able to live another
