Many people moved to cities to work in industry and about 40 percent of those workers were low-wage earners.1 As industry grew, women, children, and poor immigrants found themselves the main targets for work in factories. With the birth of unions, workers have a voice at work. They negotiate contracts so that they can work in a safe and fair workplace. Better wages, retirement packages, and vacation time are other things for which a union works.2 A Brief History of Manufacturing Before manufacturing, people made what they needed on their own or traded with people nearby. Because of this, people became specialized in certain skills.
The community changed a lot because people moved in and out constantly. When they were fortunate to be able to move to better areas, more of the less fortunate moved in. This began to trigger social conflict between the residences. With social conflict came a lot of other behaviors and with this process happening over and over a pattern starts. Cultural transmission theory comes in to play here.
The migrant: A person moving from their own country to another, usually to work on it on a stable or temporary work. The migration of Puerto Ricans has been linked to economic and social decline since the 1950’s, where nearly half the country left the island for a better future in the North America continent. Migratory movements have their effect on society, education, health and the economy in both countries producing migrants as those receiving immigrants. This work attempts to capture the main reasons Puerto Ricans output to the U.S. In addition, to investigate
This means that the majority of people living in the area are those who cannot afford to move away. As an urban area spirals into decline, it becomes a decreasing priority for both public and private investment, which results in a loss of industry as businesses move out. Consequences of this decline include poor quality housing, empty buildings and factories and high levels of pollution. Furthermore, social characteristics include high unemployment, crime rates and split families. Enterprise
They struggle to sustain themselves and live in poverty as a result of the increase of spatial inequality. This is the case in most parts of Western Australia, rural Queensland and even Sydney. This is related to the process of people moving out of a community in search of work or an improved standard of living. In Sydney, there have been an increasing number of people moving towards the city and as a result, the split between Sydney’s the North and North East and the South and South West is becoming more prominent. In the South and South West there is more chance of inequality as it is further from the city and facilities.
Firstly, as more people were around to do work, it meant that employers could afford to pay workers less, due to the idea that there would always be others to take their place, and also due to the idea that, as more people were trying to get certain jobs, it meant that more people would be counted as unemployed. Secondly, due to the idea that more people were around, it meant that more food would be required. This also meant that, as food would be running short, it meant that food prices became higher, so people had to pay more for food. This in turn meant that families could not provide as much, so many became very poor and needy. This may have also been due to mass inflation at the time: ‘By 1600 food cost on average five times as much as they had in 1500; the cost of living rose by over 35%’.
The less fortunate people or the poor people lived in back alleys and courtyards of the city unbelievable amount of hours just to support their families. Not everyone had to work like this, only the unfortunate people who were not born into his or her richness. These living and working conditions really divided the rich and the poor which started political parties to form.
Migrants from China, Japan, Indian, Korea, and the Philippines faced discrimination during the late 19th and early 20th century. They came for better paying jobs and more job opportunities to save money for their family. As a result, they faced resentment from white worker. The resentment led to laws prohibited them from entering the country and owning land. “Most of the migrants in each group came as sojourners.
The issue of the case: The issues of this case has to deal with the company not being able to employ many people. The near 150 employees are mostly neighbors and almost all from the same community. The company is suffering from issues that have to do with hard-working employees nearing retirement. Now, they have to deal with replacing all the employees. The other issue that is happening is the market share.
It also affected the economy as payrolls, pay rates, salaries, or wages decreased as the population increases due to rapid urbanization. The rapid urbanization and soaring population also resulted in rapid spread of diseases due to the condition and situation of the new industrial city. 2.) How did the factory system change the way people worked? Prior to the Industrial Revolution, most of the people migrated from farms to cities, also known as urbanization.
