The Triangle Fire In the late nineteenth century, many fields of American labor progressed from hand tool limitation to booming, breakneck productivity. Output in many industries, including the clothing industry, extended exponentially. Statistically, America was thriving. However, the gears pumping the American economic engine were human beings who were excessively overworked and underpaid. The focus of the typical business tycoon laid dead set on profit and production, and left scamp or no spot on the agenda for employee well being and safety.

Using hyperbole for the idea that I can bring “World Peace” creating a “Utopia” shows the audience/listeners that I have high goals and by saying how I plan to start my goal for creating a “Utopia” by fighting against terrorism and ending the war with Iraq in a responsible way, shows them that I know what I am talking about and know where my first steps that are needed to be taken. I will also seem like a smart/caring person, especially since I am most likely trying to cause change that almost all would agree with and support!

During an age of mass industrialization and urbanization, obtaining social justice was of vital importance because with social justice established, social control would naturally be achieved due to the satisfaction of citizens being treated equally. Progressive reformers moved to correct flaws in government and improve societal equality, but they soon found the widened divisions in American society to be difficult, if not impossible, to overcome. (Out of Many, 606) Progressivism was characterized by a series of movements, each of them aimed in one way or another at renovating or restoring American society, its values, and institutions. (Out of Many, 612) The three basic social issues addressed by the Progressives were women suffrage, freedmens civil rights, and working conditions.
