Both the upper and lower classes were changed and they both had different experiences. Economic theories were developed as a direct effect of the revolution, economic theories such as capitalism and communism. Each theory benefited different social classes and each theory had its flaws. The industrial revolution caused the growth of cities to skyrocket. The majority of people in Europe lived in rural areas before the revolution and after the majority of people lived in urban areas.
Coal and iron deposits in the southern | The sparse population of the West did not support much industrial growth, and the economy continued to be based on natural resources. | Economic growth in both farming and manufacturing. | Population Change | There was a high population.By 1870 about 15 percent of the U.S. population was foreign born. | Many Africans Americans left to work in the North and Midwest because of the problems with race. |
Hiring Ratios Upon review of Tanglewood’s historical data for hiring and promotion I found that of the 4,764 total new hires, 82.9% were white, 16.8% were non-white, and 2.3% were African American. More to the point, as the positions within the company increased to Assistant Store Manager or Store Manager, the overall percentage of white hires to African American hires also significantly increased. Of the external candidates reviewed and hired for the Assistant Store Manager position a full 100% hired were white. These numbers suggest that the company did not meet the 4/5th ratio used in determining disparate impact, in other words, greater than 80% of the applicants hired were white. This number strongly suggests Tanglewood would be found guilty of disparate impact.
From the years 1780-1832, Manchester, England was a leading textile manufacturing city soon after its first industrialized cotton mill was built in 1780. The city’s population boomed during the years of the industrialization increasing from 18,000 to over 300,000; predominantly made up of the working class and immigrants. In addition, Queen Victoria granted Manchester a royal charter after her pleasant visit during 1851, acknowledging the city’s great progress and giving it special privileges because of its success. Although many positive effects came from the textile manufacturing and growing population, the repercussion of its health issues, low morale, along with its working and living conditions overshadow its accomplishments. The industrialization of Manchester was successful for the modernization of man, yet its growth also raised many concerns in society.
Industrialization DBQ Throughout history the growth of cities around the world has caused various issues. The growth of Manchester during the nineteenth century caused many issues like over population and filthiness of the city, which have lead to many reactions like the ones from working people. The growth of Manchester led to many people moving there which caused Manchester to become over populated. With so many people living in Manchester it became a place of filth and ridden with disease. Due to the increase of workers’ wages were cut which made workers have bad reactions to the growth of Manchester.
Mergers, acquisitions, and bankruptcies among manufacturers brought about by declining demand for carpet and rugs, excess manufacturing capacity, and dwindling profit margins reduced the number of carpet and rug manufacturers from more than 300 in the mid-1980s to about 100 companies in early 2000. By 1999, it was estimated that 10 companies in the industry produced 91 percent of carpet and rug sales in the United States. Three companies: Shaw Industry, Mohawk Industries, and Beaulieu of America accounted for about 85 percent of U.S.
Capitalist development and economic downturn eroded American workers sense of pride and progress throughout the sixty years leading up to 1840. Beginning after 1844, mass immigration from Europe to the United States gave American business owners and employers a new source of cheap human labor, which further undermined organized American labor. Most of these immigrants were unskilled Catholic Irish and German agricultural workers. American working class Protestants despised them for their faith and heritage, in addition to their poverty. Likewise, by the 1840s, the free black population in the U.S. had expanded due to the emerging belief that slavery was immoral.
Puerto Rico was struggling to develop a growing economy, and because of the inexpensive airplanes fares between San Juan and New York City, by 1970 there were about 1.5 million Puerto Ricans in America. The first immigrants settled in the East Harlem, Manhattan, but they spread out rapidly into the other four New York City boroughs. In 1970, 64 percent of Puerto Ricans lived in New York. By 1980 this figure had dropped to 50 percent, and Puerto Rican enclaves had grown in other major cities-particularly Hartford, Connecticut; Philadelphia; Cleveland; Chicago; Los Angeles; and Miami. During the 1970s, Because economic conditions in the United States was getting worse, more Puerto Ricans returned to the island than came to America.
‘The Tsar Liberator’ How valid is this description was this of Alexander II? In 1855 Russia was ruled by Alexander Romanov in the form of an autocracy in which the Tsar had absolute power. During this period the economic situation of the country was is ruins, due to the increasing size of the population in 1855 the population was 70 million and in 1900 it grew to 130 million, therefore the already limited 6% of ideal farming land throughout Russia was strained, by the vast amount of mouths to feed. In addition the Russian industry was considered backwards due to Britain leading the industrial revolution it was known as the workshop of the world. Furthermore the social climate fared no better with 80% of the population consisting of peasants, there was a huge divide between the rich and poor.
Agriculture was slowly being pushed aside for manufacturing jobs. By the end of the 1800's, 80 percent of England's population lived in cities. Industrialization and Engineering Steam-powered cotton factories enabled Victorian Britain to produce more than half the world's supply of cotton. Coal-mining around Newcastle also expanded rapidly to meet demand. With the upsurge in railway construction, moving goods to shipping ports became easy, while ship-building itself went forward at a rapid pace.
