Urbanization increased rapidly when factories opened, which gave workers the opportunity to make money. In the text it said, "grew to enormous sizes when they were successful." In the article I read, it said that urban cities thrived and more and more workers got jobs which lead to them getting paid. As factories got bigger they took advantage of their workers giving them unfair hours and pay. In response, workers used their rights to crate labor unions (an organized association of workers, often in a trade or profession, formed to protect and further their rights and interests). These groups stuck together to protectwages, hours, and freedoms.
