The Curse of the Industrial Era Danny Chavez. Hour-7

The industrial development was a time where factories came to life. Sam slater was the person to bring this idea to America. They hit hard on people. Citizens worked on assembly lines, where they put a job to a person that worked on one part of an object. There hours were long and hard, with little pay.

In this time it started child labor, there was poor working conditions, and there was discrimination against women.

Child Labour

Child labour is the number one curse on my list. Kids need to express themselves in there own ways. Not be stuck in this hole they call a job.

These people believed that, for many children, the work was ruining their health and their ability to have a good life. -Www.WorldboOkonliNe.cOm

Childrens health was being affected by these poor working conditions. Like the quote said "ruining their health and their ability to have a good life." There us no life for kids like these.


This era consisted of unhealthy working conditions. Workers also had very long hours with bosses screaming at their faces. This is also like child labor affected there health. They were payed poor wages. Roughly around 400 to 500 dollars a year. Which is under income to live. One of the biggest curses of the revolution. Working long hours with little pay is called a sweatshop.

At the turn of the century it took an annual income of at least $600 to live comfortably but the average worker made between $400 and $500 per
Discrimination against women

Girls were looked down upon, and women we not treated fairly. They were also under payed and didn't get the same rights as a white men did. Women couldn't vote, and they didn't get the same jobs as men. They could be a nurse or work at the clothes shop. Also a few other jobs.

United Nations in 1979 that defines discrimination against women and commits signatory countries to taking steps toward ending
