INFLUENCE OF SOCIAL ISSUES IN THE HISTORY OF MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY Michelle Gilruth The Social Issue of Unions There are many social issues that have affected manufacturing over the years. Many of these issues led to the formation of unions. Before unions, unskilled workers did not fair well. They received half the pay of skilled workers like craftsmen, artisans, and mechanics. 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.
The industrial revolution took place due to an agricultural revolution that occurred because of an increasing population. The introduction of enclosed farming meant that the poorer people lost out and travelled to towns to seek work. The domestic system meant that many people worked from home, spinning and weaving cotton brought in from North America. They were paid a fraction of the cost that it was eventually sold for. Entrepreneurs started to create new inventions that would speed up the process of spinning and weaving meaning more cotton could be produced and exported.

Since there was nowhere to get supplies from, cities had to provide for themselves. With the scarce amount of goods on hand, and the high demand for them, prices skyrocketed. Most of the workers were dead; those who weren’t, charged up to five times what they had before the plague. As the workers’ wages outpaced the prices of goods, the workers began to become rich and skilled in what they did.
During that time in history, industrialization had low hygiene standards, poor living conditions. Overcrowding was due to the sudden movement of many people to the same area (because many farmers lost their land and jobs. Rats, insects and other pests became common. Diseases were spread more easily. Friedrich Engels stated in “The Condition of the Working Class in England”, a variety of characteristics of working class living conditions in England.
There are numerous contributing factors that make this even harder on the population of Mohave County to survive. The need is evident with the growing rate of people only surviving because of benefits like food stamps and unemployment checks that things need to change. This is even more of an issue right now with the government shutting down and putting a stop to programs like WIC and possibly food stamps. The need is for there to be more available positions. The reasons this occurs is due to numerous factors like the number of companies going out of business, lack of job growth, future plans for job growth does not meet the need, founding father’s not allowing large business to come to town, education level of community, sales tax is high, and average household income is low.
During Industrial Revolution many immigrants came to America in search of jobs in factories and a new lifestyle. Throughout history the amount of immigrants have influenced the growth of technology and effect the way factories develop. As immigrants came from their homeland in search of jobs and a new way to live they faced many hardships. With the difficulty of finding transportation to America, immigrants would pay to sail in different classes of boats similar to cargo ships. These boats would transfer hundreds of immigrants to America therefore leaving the boats extremely crowded and unsanitary.
