Industry: The Begining Of Ruining Earth On A Large Scale

 

 

The Industrial Revolution in Europe was basically a great change in the order and function of society.

 

-On surface level, it changed society into one that produced using mass production, factories, etc. Really!

-This caused a need for workers, except that the new efficent methods meant that there were less workers needed. Oh no!

-This lead to a) higher unemployment rate, b) lower wages and labor conditions c) disgruntled, poor workers. No Fair!

-This pressure created a tension in society, leading to revolutions everywhere. Let's get `em!

-The outcome of these revolutions made for a different societal hierarchy, one in which the laboring class was a large part. Why us?

-After things began to settle, advances were made in the quality of life, and the laborers banded together to create better lives for themselves. It all worked out.
