Impact of the Industrial Revolution Early 1800's

As the industrial revolution started working conditions and wages were terrible. Long hours of standing and hard work with numerous harmful gases and toxins in the air and also hot steam and coal made it very dangerous.

Coal mines

Since the industrial revolution brought all kinds of new machines and technology that used coal, it became a valuable and profitable resource. But coal workers were closer to slaves then workers. Low wages long hours of hard strenuous work in small dangerous caves that could collapse at any moment also the fumes were very harmful and terrible for the lungs.

Child labor

Since the industrialization more workers were needed and also since there was money needed to be made children as young as seven were forced to work in dangerous factories. Also they didn't demand as much pay and could work longer hours.

Changing Role of Women

As the demand for workers became higher as more factories and machines were being delovoped the role of women started to change. Instead of staying home cleaning and being a housewife they were needed in factories and on the assembly line.


As more factories and technology started being made more money was flowing through the economy and more houses were being built. Also since more people were able to have jobs more people were able to buy houses.

Changing class structure

As jobs became more plentiful and more people were able to make a living wage the middle class began to grow. More people were able to live in peace and have good wages due to unions being formed.

Forming of Union

In my opinion the most thing that came out of the Industrial Revolution was the forming of union for workers. People became sick of terrible working conditions with dangerous hot coals and steams everywhere and harmful toxins in the air and also low wages. They formed workers unions and demanded better working conditions and higher wages.


Communism is a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs. I believe it is at the top of the chart because it uses the most government control and the government has the most power in this form of control than any other.


Socialism is a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. It's second on the chart since the government has a large part to do with it but not as much control over everything as communism a more of a share the wealth idea. The government just helps to keep everything flowing and under control.


Capitalism is an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state. It's even lower on the chart since the government has even less power and control and is ran more by the wealthy and private owners. This helps to make sure there is no dictatorship and also takes everyone to work together.


Anarchism is the belief in the abolition of all government and the organization of society on a voluntary, cooperative basis without recourse to force or compulsion. Total opposite of Capitalism government has no form of control or power due to this it's lowest on the chart.
