Long story short, the Industrial Revolution was when major industries and many inventions were used and made in a the time period from about 1760 to between 1820 and 1840. It was a time when showers were rarely taken. A time when people drank (without knowing) sewage water. A time with child labor. It helped others and hurt others.
Inventors and Inventions
Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. He gave better, brighter, and expanded light to the world. Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. He helped with communication across the world. Nils Bohlin invented the seat belt. He made driving safer.
Child labor is pretty much what it sounds like. Except that age 5-12 kids worked in dangerous factories with dangerous machines. "It's the hard knock life". Children were paid a very little amount of money a month. Kids in factories were treated unfairly and could seriously injured. That is why the Child Labor Laws were made.
The assembly line has made good products faster than ever! When you have fifty experts for something, the production speed is slow. But, the assembly line speeds things up! You can have fifty amateurs in an assembly line, production speeds up like crazy! Products are made faster, you can pay workers less, and it's a win-win.
