The development of these technologies changed transportation, manufacturing, and even communication. These technologies also contributed to creating huge factories, through standardization, and thus furthering urbanization. The assembly line was a massive factor in industrialization, although it was invented pre-civil war; it allowed the mass production of goods and increased worker efficiency. People were now able to afford things that only the wealthy would have been able to afford in the past. On the other hand, the assembly line did indeed deskill many workers, and further reorganized how the people made a living.
Following the WWII the economy boomed in several ways. Due to the high demand of supplies for the military it created jobs and decreased the number of unemployed citizens. The production and expansion of military products did not seize even after the war was over. It opened up factories to create more powerful and sophisticated weapons to defeat our enemies. As we see today we are still seeing changes in our military and defense system.
Industrialization had a major impact on American society. It was a time of growth and expansion for the nation as a whole as it brought about new ideas and resistance to reformation. In many ways industry was helpful to America’s economy, but it was also a hindrance for the vast majority of the population. People like Sam Patch, otherwise known as the working poor, did not have much opportunity to advance in society, so as time passes there’s more resistance and protest to letting the rich get richer. The messages sent from the famous jumps of Sam Patch were the beginning of a new of democracy, and a fulfillment to the true meaning of the word equality.
Although Starbucks does face much competition, one of their biggest threats seems to be themselves. They have grown quickly which means they had to spend numerous amounts of money to open new stores and expand their products. “The company had its success through baby boomers in the 90’s, but now the Generation X is not liking the environment of the shop and the young generation feel out of place in the coffee shop, above all the price of coffee seems to be little expensive to them ("Case: Starbucks- Going Global Fast", 2012)”. With Starbucks wants to grow r rapidly and business oriented, it could be possible that they forget how to give customers that one on one customer service. Starbucks was a coffee shop that allowed friends to come together over a cup of coffee and now it has expanded with Wi-Fi in stores, and online stores.
This shows how much he pushes to make America a better place. The government also becomes more involved with the economics of the American people as well. The government became more involved with the new deal and that led to their involvement in “Big jobs usually go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow small ones,” (Grapes 21).This quote shows the hoped/ actual results of the government involvement. Although it still affects the U.S. today Roosevelt help the U.S. by getting the government more involved with the people and in turn improved the Great
During the 1990’s, it was one of the fastest growing retailers in history. This was mainly due to the fact it trained its employees to form enduring long-term customer relationships rather than push for immediate sales. In 2001, a new CEO implemented a number of new initiatives intended to make the business more competitive. These changes led to significant dissatisfaction, low morale, high turnover, reduced productivity, and general discontent among the associates (Dr. Ronald L. Hess, Jr., 2012.) As a result, the company suffered a decline in customer satisfaction and financial performance.
A single factory might hire thousands of workers. These jobs brought people to the cities. Third, the factory system allowed ordinary Americans to own all kinds of things. There were more goods to buy, and they became cheaper as methods of manufacturing continued to improve. For example, the first cars were so expensive that only rich people could afford to buy them but cars became cheaper when Ford invented the moving assembly line and the work went faster.
for the better. At the start of his presidency he mainly focused on bigger businesses to stimulate the economy, but as time went on he found himself being driven to the center of need, the working class. The New Deal had many upsides but it had many failures too, with programs being unconstitutional and an absolute waste of American time. FDR’s presidency with always be noteworthy and held on a pedestal for all of the effort he put into changing the U.S.. The New Deal also changed the way the U.S. was took upon the role of president.
Business elites exploited their work force and made profits to the maximum degree. Time had changed and no one could make adjustments and adapted as quickly and smoothly as business. The number of immigrants allowed to enter United States was restricted by quotas. Workers became much more united after the publication of the novels and the fire that burned at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company. Theodore Roosevelt stepped up and warned businesses to “act properly.” Those business elites that cooperated with the government elites were considered good trusts.
The American Industrial Revolution changed many lives of many American during the 1800’s and early 1900’s. She was becoming one of the most important industrial nations during this period through aggressive political negotiations, economical and military power. Americans were discovering better ways of manufacture of goods, making transportation more reliable and creating communication more accessible to the general public. The population began to grow at a rapid rate and technological advances promoted the growth of industries in rural areas throughout the US. New technologies allowed business owners to reduce labor and the hours in the movement of materials from one point to the other.
