Migrant farm workers must survive many challenging conditions so that American can have the best selection of all the fresh foods found in farms. My grandfather was an immigrant that migrated from Yemen in 1970 and was working in a farm in Fresno CA.
Individuals who were in the lower class were farmers, as well as factory workers. There was a lot of adapting which needed to take place; for example, the lower class had to work tirelessly in order to earn the same amount of money as they previously would have made. During this era, many changes occurred for both groups, the farmers had to learn how to adapt, and factory workers had
Changing from an agrarian to an urban society encompassed changing perceptions of time, economic systems and family values. Time, on the farm was dictated by the length of the day. Work was done as long as the sun was in the sky, and everyone in the family was involved in some form that contributed to the success and survival of the family. This was disrupted when families moved to urban centers. They were no longer self-sufficient and their barter-based economy was replaced by a cash-based system.
During the Industrial Revolution life for the working changed in many ways, including working areas and conditions, lifestyle, social status and political influence. The most dramatic change in the lives of the working class during this industrialization was the change in dominant occupation and area of work. Upon the influence of the Industrial Revolution many people moved into larger cities to begin work as both skilled and semi-skilled workers and the most popular industry involving the work in mills and factories(Greer et al., 2012). Most of these people were forced out of their farming areas due to implementation of the enclosure acts causing land to be taken off people leaving them without a job(Carrodus, 2012). Skilled workers were
A spectacular and sweeping revolution that illuminated Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Industrial Revolution existed as a distinguishing event that changed the course of Europe for centuries to come. The Industrial Revolution is summed up as the period in Europe in which the growth of technological innovation sparked improvements in the European way of production. Large factories opened to mass-produce textiles, and the new steam engine allowed mines to operate more efficiently. The Industrial Revolution, moreover, completely transformed the European way of life. Despite the revolution’s many successes, its core reveals a darker.

The vast majority of people were farmers, who produced food for entire civilization (“Daily Life in the Inca Empire”). In fact, farmers were required to produce food first for the government, then the religion, before finally making food for themselves and their families (“Daily Life in the Inca Empire”). The way in which they farmed was also very interesting. Incans farmed on the sides of mountains by creating complex, stone structures to hold soil in place (Ellis and Esler 198). Finally, for a period of time every year, citizens had to fulfill a labor tax by doing Mit’a work (“Daily Life in the Inca Empire”).
For centuries, peasants have constituted the great majority of all agricultural labour. Peasants can be described as groups of people that practice self-sufficient agricultural activities, although peasant farming is not just an enterprise but also a unit of domestic economy (Gałęski, 1972: 41). Industrialisation and the changes it has brought forth in the economy and society have modified the way in which peasants live and are perceived in modern times, especially in Western countries. Throughout industrialisation and the rise of capitalism, peasantry as a social group has been expected to disappear in numerous occasions as a result of these processes. However, it would be incorrect to assume that peasants and their way of living have ceased
