From a first glance these figures would be discouraging to someone that was looking to start a business in this industry. Even though 238320 is refers to a specific sector of the construction industry, it is still a broad reference point. When an industry, specifically the one you are in, is in decline, it is important for business owners and executives to adapt to the changing demands of their consumers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, while the value of the industry is in decline, its workforce is on the rise. It is hard to get an accurate measure on how many businesses like mine are in the KC metro.
The most of the grasslands has been replaced with buildings, roads, and bridges. The over population of species is costing less natural resources to be available such as the grassland and farms. As people grow in number the earth get crowd and buildings are build and also pollution in the air. For instance cars gases creates pollution the increase of people means the increase of cars, and buses. If people continue to make the decisions to develop over natural resources the earth is in trouble.
However, the accelerated progression of the country’s economy and affluence wrought consequential effects. Businesses monopolised entire industries through vertical and horizontal integration, the increase in industry attracted workers to already densely populated cities, and working conditions for the lower-to-middle class were often poor. With the unprecedented increases in population, cities were ill-equipped to support the sanitary and safety needs of the occupants. Post-Civil War demands triggered manufacturing expansion. Soon the new economic process was largely controlled by the utilisation of iron, as well as electric and steam power.
This has occurred as a result of rapid advances in transport and telecommunications technology, such that it is now possible to buy and sell stock, place orders for delivery/production of good and discuss business strategy at the click of a button. World cities are cities such as New York, London, Paris and Tokyo, and they fall into global hierarchy of dominance and dependence more of which will be discussed in character. Mega cities in the developing world contract a great deal to this. Whereas world cities play important roles globally, megacities in the DW tend to have their influence limited to the nation in which they exist. This is a result of the fact that more than 40% of the less developed nations population live in megacities; making them large hubs for population, employment and free riding off services such as sanitation and water not provided in rural areas (and only marginally supplied in megacities incidentally).
The initiative of the government to take interest of the works, modernization of the infrastructure, opening of schools, providing proper sanitations and bringing about health and water facilities (Urbanization During the Industrial Revolution, 2010). The formation of labor unions during the first Industrial revolution brought a surge of new workers into the workplace. Because of the abundance of laborers available made individual workers expendable and led to decreased wages (Hackett, 1992). Underage workers were also heavily present in many jobs. Health and safety conditions in the workplace were poor and workers had little recourse.
Although urban regeneration is a worldwide issue, it has been especially present in the urban areas throughout the UK in the last 30 years, with the government introducing many different schemes to try and combat the causes and consequences of urban decline. This essay will discuss them and their varying degrees of success. Urban Development Corporations were set up in the 1980s and 1990s, and took the stance of improving the physical, economic and social state of inner city areas through building new infrastructure on derelict and vacant land. These UDCs were given planning approval powers that encouraged them to purchase land, build the new infrastructure and improve the marketing to attract outside investment to the area. The motive behind this was that private investment would be four to five times greater than the initial public spending.
Unemployment in America is high. This means more people competing for jobs. Many Americans are losing there jobs because they are outsourced by big corporations who send jobs to foreign countrys were they can pay less. Also unlike other countrys the price of collages are increasing all the time. Collage is becoming more unfordable and at the same time more of a necessity because there are fewer manufacturing jobs then there have ever been.
During this time there were also many new technological advancements and life generally improved. However Source B seems to focus on the negatives of Industrialisation, which is made clear by the very first sentence of "At tremendous human cost" and refers to Industrialisation as a time of "social control, ruthless and cruel effects". This could be due to the fact that during Industrialisation caused many problems such as pollution increasing dramatically, working conditions were incredibly poor, and long and hard working days. People were moving into the cities and disease began to spread because of the overcrowded cities and the unsanitary living
A high population density lowers the quality of life as there is little open space for people to take walks and to breathe in fresh air. In the Inner City the infrastructure is more established as the population density is higher and so the threshold is high enough for shops and businesses nearby, in the CBD. Whereas the threshold is not high enough on the rural-urban fringe as the range is higher, the occupants are usually more willing to travel to the centre of town to get their goods, this may be because they commute to work and so may already travel past a shop on the way. The majority of the major towns and cities have built themselves up by the industry meaning that there was a lot of work and business in the CBD. This is still the case,
Why does the impact of human activity on the environment vary over time and space? Human activity has had a large impact on the environment over the last many hundred years; this has changed and become more prevalent as we enter the 21st century. The impact also varies depending on where it occurs different countries may have a greater impact or may be working harder in order to limit their impact; MEDC’s and LEDC’s will have different impacts and different methods of prevention due to their economic and political situations. Populations in the UK have been around for thousands of years dating right back to the Mesolithic era around 12000-6000 BP, due to the small size in the population and their lack of knowledge, just being hunter-gatherers they has little impact on the environment, this changes however as the population increase and more is discovered, the Neolithic era saw the first farmers appear and along with this the beginning of the clearance of the wild-wood, by 2500 BP almost half of the wild-wood had been cleared as farming technology developed and new fort towns had to be supported. The environment was gradually being degraded, but through the next 2015 years the impact was going to dramatically increase and rapidly speed up until we get to the present day where the earth is in major danger.
