Due to the increase of workers’ wages were cut which made workers have bad reactions to the growth of Manchester. Due to industrialization that took place in Manchester during the nineteenth century it had a period of rapid growth which led to the issue of over population. Robert Southey claimed that you could not find a place more destitute than Manchester due to the numerous crowds of people in the street and the endless number of brick and blackened houses (doc. 2). I would expect Robert Southey to write like this directly because he was a romantic poet and wrote with his emotions not facts.
In the late 19th century, Russia began its process of industrialization following its defeat at the hands of Western nations in the Crimean War. Russia's Industrial Revolution was further helped along by its growing population and an increasing labor force. As the industrial process continued, it gave new job opportunities such as: in mining, factory work, and railroad construction. This influx of jobs was taken by an influx of people, where it came from the country to work in the cities as cheap laborers, taking up dangerous and low-paying jobs. In spite of all these changing times and circumstances, the tension between the upper and lower classes remained tenser than ever before, building up under the fabric of society.
Since its declared independence in the late 1700s, the United States has become one of the most industrialized nations in the world. This was caused by major changes that occurred in society between 1890 and 1920. Social changes included the spike in gangs and tenements, along with changes in the role of African Americans Political reform also took place as a result of social change. Along with social and political change came economic change, which took the shape of legislation such as the Anti Trust laws, which increased exports in the United States between 1870 and 1920. Industrialization also caused an increase in urbanization.
In conclusion, there were many social, economic, and political reactions cause by industrialization and urbanization between 1890 and 1920. The Progressive movement was just one that arose during this time, introducing many reforms that can still be seen today. Whether these are good or bad are everyone`s opinion, but it can be said that they had a big impact on life
Entrepreneurs of Late Nineteenth Century The American industry experienced a tremendous industrial growth after the Civil War, continuing well into the early twentieth century. This heavy industrialization saw remarkable economic benefits as well as notable changes in the American way of life. Technological innovations, abundant raw-materials, viable production techniques and the discovery of new materials, facilitated the rapid industrial development. A relatively small group of entrepreneurs emerged during this period and by means of their personal abilities, political support and other factors, managed by sometimes questionable business ethics to acquire huge wealth in a short period of time, while most of the population struggled with harsh working conditions, low job security and poverty. The “labels”, “captains of industry” and “robber barons”, characterize these early entrepreneurs accurately, the latter one being more appropriate.
The substantial increase in population due to immigration that occurs during this time goes on to affect the nation in positive and negative ways. Some of the adverse affects of such a rapid growth in population were overcrowding in cities, lack of jobs, and occasional food shortages. But the hard working spirit and work ethic that the immigrants brought, along with a determined will to succeed, were an overarching positive were crucial to the country becoming what it is today. In the late 1800s, people in many parts of the world decided to leave their homes and emigrate to the United States. Immigrants entered into the United States through several
Another large effect of the Industrial Revolution was the boom of the American population. Immigrants from all over the world came to America for job opportunities and to start a new life. “Among the studies that address the relationship between immigration and industrialization, few go beyond a general or abstract discussion.” -ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. The high immigration levels caused much over-population, and thus came the invention of tenants which brought the evolved idea of “studio apartments” as we call them today. The
The Progressive Era The decades between 1890 and 1920 was a period of vital reform activity that historians have called, The Progressive Era. In this era millions of Americans organized in voluntary associations to come up with solutions to the many problems. Industrialization, with all its increase in productivity and the number of consumer goods, created unemployment and labor unrest, wasteful use of natural resources and abuses of corporate power. Growing cities added to the problems of African Americans versus The Social Sciences American segregation was a bitter part of American history. Even worse, though, are the securing reasons for the need of segregation and the defense of the institution.
Because of the revolution there was a rapid growth of cities and business. The working conditions for many workers were a disaster, but as time went on these conditions soon got better. Women now had a different role in society which may have included staying at home and handling the chores of the house, but it also including women finding jobs and it brought them one step closer to equality. Different economic theories were created as a result. One of the theories was radical and unrealistic and the other become the foundation for many progressive nations such as the
The industrial revolution introduced mass production and greater markets. The world was slowly transpiring into a global village, with all the new machinery and technology being produced. Ultimately, the industrial revolution was a turning point in history that paved the way for technological, scientific, and cultural advancements. However, with all these advancements, there are negative consequences to be faced. This can be demonstrated through the examination of urbanization, the rise of new classes, theories (by Smith, Malthus and Ricardo), and factory conditions.
