My take on industrial reviloution
Today we will be telling you about your past to now, this is about the industrial revolution. In the 1700's our people were just working on clothing and food just basically what they needed. But then people started to make extra and sold that to other merchants and sales men. Then machines were starting to be added into business about 50 years later. This caused supply in demand, people were thinking "since it is easier to make these products, then they should make it quicker and it will be better". Then soon they started using more efficient machines, this led to industrial revolution. In this revolution the most impacted product was clothing. Britain was the most productive industry.
The textile industry is the making of products made out of cloth, recently Britain has taken over and led in this industry. After making these machines a fellow of mine had said "these amazing machines allow me to produce clothing quickly and even inexpensively." A man named Samuel Slater escaped from Britain and claimed that he can "improve" the way clothing is manufactured in the United States! His machine ended up working and now as you can see we are moving along swiftly. A man soon came named Eli Whitney, he introduced an idea. The idea was mass production. Mass production is when you can make many things at once. This impacted the government very positively.
In conclusion these two men impacted this revolution very positively.
How did the machines change Americans jobs?
Our bosses started to pay less, and made working conditions harder. How the workers responded was making groups that try to improve pay and working conditions, these were called trade unions. To go along with this, many people wanted labor reforms. Many people were working at least 10 hours per day, and they wanted to change that but the bosses wouldn't budge.
How did the new transportation change our country?
Transportation affected the Americans very positively.
How does the advance of technology change the daily life and work?
In the year 1860 farmers were producing more than 170 million bushels every year.
In the year 1860 farmers were producing more than 800 million bushels of this per year.
