A French women’s rights advocate, Flora Tristan, said that in the factories, “They (the workers) are all wizened, sickly and emaciated, their bodies thin and frail, their limbs feeble, their complexions pale, their eyes dead… O God! Can progress be bought only at the cost of men’s lives?” (Document 7). This indicates that the rapid growth and advancements of Manchester were a direct cause of the physical issues that arose inside the factories and areas of developments. However, this observation could be exaggerated
The Industrial Revolution was a period in time that many people think changed the world only for the better. Even though the Industrial Revolution brought about many great inventions that have helped us become a great nation, no one recognizes how many lives it damaged in the process. Agricultural workers and especially factory workers had their health destroyed, and sometimes died, from the horrible working conditions that they were placed in. Many workers wrote about and testified in court about the terrible work environments they were put in, hoping to bring about some change and spread solutions to their problems. These people also managed to fit into the ideological and political frameworks of two of the greatest thinkers during this time period, Karl Marx and Alexis de Tocqueville.
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.
This had an impact on the poor, it caused stigma and the poor had a mark of disgrace on their reputation. The difference between the 1601 Act and the 1834 Act was that the 1601 Act had a compulsory poor rate for all who were unemployed Moore states “very first act
OUTER WORLD- social context Firstly outer world. We will be discussing the social context of Ubu Roi and how it affected Jarry’s 19th century playwright. (change slide) In early 19th century Paris was threatened by dirty and unsanitary living conditions; (change slide) coal was the main source of fuel for heating and cooking, (change slide) streets had open drains and (change slide) sewers filled with garbage and human waste. Leading to inevitably more people in the early 19th century dying of disease and illness, rather than people being born. This relates to the way Jarry describes not only the cleanliness of the people in Ubu Roi, but also shows the grossness and foulness of their very existence.
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.
At this time people wanted to spend their money instead of save it for hard times. Society’s hourly pay rate nearly double and tripled during this era. War factories transitioned from making war materials to making civilian supplies, which lead to the boost in our economy at the time. Today, effects of the Baby Boom have many factors that come into play that affect our economy. According to National Academy of Social Insurance “social security faces a financial challenge from the impending retirement of the largest generation in American history, the 76 million persons born in the “baby boom” years, from 1946 through 1964.
Harsh environment faced by workers of the Industrial Revolution d) In the Conditions of the Working Class in England (Doc 7), it is obvious that worker settlements of the Industrial Revolution were of poor conditions. For example, rivers running through Manchester were extremely polluted. This most likely caused working individuals to resent their choice of employment and debate on switching to a cleaner, more stable job (i.e. a farmer). (POV?)
The harsh realities of living as a working class family in Britain before 1840 included a serious lack of basic human necessities. From 1840 to 1965 there were widespread social changes occurring in Britain that altered everyday life for many people. The experiences of the working class transformed significantly through their increased access to education, healthcare, and welfare reform, but at the same time the experiences of the middle and upper classes stayed stagnant as they already had access to many of these basic necessities. Education was one of the predominate social institutions that begin to transform in late 19th century and this directly affected a large number of people. There was a strong desire to educate more of the population
Throughout the french revolution, radical and social upheaval affected french society. The french society underwent its own transformation as the public resented the privileges of the clergy and aristocracy. Two expensive wars caused a financial crisis and years of bad harvest. Secondly the industrial revolution was a factor in the emergence of modernism. The industrial revolution, over time, changed the lives of all Europeans.
