The building of railroads also created many jobs for the immigrants looking for work. It was dangerous and physically toiling, but paid good money. Communities began to develop near the railroad as it inspired a more interconnected society, and they were able to work together easier due to the decreased travel time. The farmers could send more crops longer distances for less money, which had two positive effects. The sellers found new markets in which to sell their goods, and individuals who lived on the frontier were able to obtain goods that were previously unavailable or extremely hard to get.
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
The massive number of European immigrants that entered into America’s east coast from the late 1800’s and on forever influenced the growth and development of the country. Fleeing crop failure, famine, rising taxes, and land/job shortages, many immigrants journeyed to the United States because it was perceived as the land of economic opportunity. With hope for a brighter future, nearly 27 million immigrants arrived in the United States between 1880 and 1920. The majority of the immigrants entered through Ellis Island, leading it to become the gateway to America and become recognized as a national symbol. Many of the immigrants, not knowing the way America worked, didn’t stray too far from the East Coast and moved into areas filled with people of similar languages, traditions, and beliefs.
America is one of the most diverse countries in the world because so many people immigrated to the United States in the past in search of new opportunities. Immigration is the action of coming to live permanently in a foreign country. People from all over the world travel to the United States for a better life. Without diversity, the United States would not have the culture it does to this day. America needs immigration because immigrants help to develop new ideas, a diversity of culture, and they founded and helped to create the United States.
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.
As well, farming became a popular trade so much that smaller farms had a difficult time competing. Allowing employment to grow aided as a beneficial aspect to America’s prosperity, but incidentally allowed for smaller businesses and private sectors to fall apart as they were being bought out from the bigger companies. Looking at today’s society, small businesses still struggle along with the once thriving ones. This is an effect of the post-war’s quick efforts to grow the economy. This method worked for many years following the war, but now the U.S. is falling back into a recessional state with companies that once ran the country are now
Apart from the social injustices, the progression and good far outweighed the bad. It was two steps forward and one step back while the economic effects were one huge leap forward and a just as big step back. There were more than a handful of inventions and discoveries that revolutionized American society, led to urban sprawl, made tasks exponentially easier, and were the centerpiece for recreation. Cars were mass produced and people decided to live outside the cities and take vacations more frequently. They produced many new jobs with the need for new roads since the American landscape was drastically expanding.
Pedro Fages entred in America through Sacramento river with the intention of colonial -exploratory venture in 1772 After his successful entry came another explorer Gabriel Moraga, on a journey to find suitable sites for the construction of missions (Cultural Clash). He was so overwhelmed with the vastness and great resources of Sacramento river that he named it “io de los Sacramentos, or river of the blessed Sacrament “.The popularity of river increased which boosted the culture and economy of California state (Cultural Clash). The Sacramento river valley got another high when gold ore was discovered in it attracting millions of people coming in wake of getting rich (Cultural Clash).Many immigrants settled here forever, completely transfiorming the American culture. This ever growing acclaim of river attracted companies like Hudson bay company which created Siskiyou Trail that ran through the mountains between Oregon's Willamette Valley and the northern part of the Sacramento valley. (Cultural Clash) This trail helped in developing the trade with other states giving a high to California's economy.
1 часть The United States, having won its independence, began to develop rapidly. The population was almost all rural. Most people lived on farms and plantations or in small villages. Communications were poor and slow, because the roads were bad. However, little by little life began to change.
With the increase in need of immigrants, international conflict from the recruitment of immigrants may pose to be a problem and should be planned in accordance. Currently, the U.S. competes with countries such as Chile, which offers immigrants $40,000 in equity-free funds and a one-year visa to begin a company in its country. The lucrative opportunity that the Chilean program offers has created more than 1,600 applications from 70 countries, with U.S. based contenders leading the way (The Partnership for a New American Economy and The Partnership for New York City, 2012). Immigration policy intended to improve the economic, social and cultural well being of the United States needs to be developed to prevent the fall and crisis of the economic stability of the United States. Comprehensive immigration policies will prove to be essential in addressing the inadequacy within our current
