In addition to women working in the workplace, there was more money in the economy. Before industrialization everyone worked from their homes, but when Samuel Slater brought new machines to the U.S. people started to stop working in their homes to make money working in factories. With so many people working and buying American made items this caused an extreme up burst in Americas economy and money. "There has been a great increase in the United States GNP during the 20th century. In 1900 the GNP was 35 billion dollars. In 1987 it was 4.5 trillion dollars."
Similar to how money in America increased, there were also many new inventions. Before any machines everything was made from scratch and by hand. But once the industrial revolution occurred machines took the place of humans in the workplace. For example Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin. Also the Steam Engine was invented by James Watt, and the Telegraph which was invented by Samuel F. B. Morse."As early as 1607, planters in the South raised cotton, but handpicking the lint from the seed took so much labor that there was little profit. Then, in 1793, Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin. This revolutionized Southern farming."
