Fast Food

In the 1950's new technology such as the assembly line restaurant revolutionized the American way of life and changed the average Americans diet from home cooked food to fast food. McDonald's was the first restaurant to have an assembly line kitchen which made food fast and easy to get. This was created to make food faster and make more money which resulted in the U.S. eating less healthy. However it did create new jobs and more food for the public.
