The Revolution

When the world changed... Written by Joshua Foster

Industrial Revolution

You wake up at 6:00 Am go to a workhouse or factory and do the same thing all day, cramped around lots of people and some of them could have been sick. Then you go home around 6:00 Pm and from the whole week with 12 hour days you get 3 to 4 dollars. The industrial revolution was a major turning point in the society. No child labors were in act so children as young as 5 were working in factories or workhouses. The poor were put into workhouses with terrible conditions. If one of them were sick no one would help them and they would spread their sickness with whoever was in the cramped workhouse. Diseases were spreading because the sewage system ran into their rivers, which they got their water from. Many bad things happened but some good things happened with the arising of the middle class and more jobs. But with good and bad the industrial revolution in 1790 changed the world!

The Assembly Line

The assembly line was an invention that helped mass produce items and goods. The assembly line brought good and bad but it definitely was part of the industrial revolution. The assembly line was about 2 times faster than what one person could do. You only had to do one job unlike handmade products where you had to make the whole thing. If you were the owner you had to pay more people but the products would be less price so more people would buy them. The assembly line definitely helped changed the world we know today.
