Industrial Revolution was a Blessing Paige Martin hour 2

The Industrial Revolution was a time when people were treated poorly in factories. They were working long hours with very low wages. Children were also working in these dangerous factories. The Revolution did bring good with it to. The Industrial Revolution was a Blessing because there were jobs for women, labor unions formed, and the railroads expanded.

WOMEN WORKING IN FACTORIES

Women working in Factories is a blessing because before women weren't even recognized. Now women can be the ones supplying for their family, it doesn't just have to be men. The article Labor and Industrial Law states," This aspect of labor law originated in laws to limit the hours of work, eliminate child labor, and protect women in the work force." So women also were starting to be protected in the work place, meaning others respected them. This was the beginning of a long journey through women's rights.

LABOR UNIONS

Labor Unions forming is a blessing. They are a blessing because it brought americans closer together. It showed that we as people have the right to speak up and stand together. The article Labor and Industrial Law states, "Examples of the types of issues regulated by labor and industrial law are: hours of labor, child labor, minimum wage, workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance, worker safety and health, disability compensation, the rights of collective bargaining by labor unions, and the social security system." The people were coming together to fight against bad working conditions.

RAILROAD EXPASION

Railroad expansion was a Blessing. It helped Americans get around and travel quickly. It also helped transport goods quicker. The article Railroad states, "They carry raw materials and farm products to manufacturing and processing plants". This quote goes along the lines of transporting goods faster and more efficiently.
