Overpopulation became a huge issue, as living spaces were extremely crowded. Populations in these areas are still high today.
I'm on my way to work..but it's just so crowded! I can't remember a time when I wasn't shoulder to shoulder with other people.
The working conditions were extremely poor in the Industrial Revolution. Workers were not given many breaks and had to work in crowded, smelly factories. Pay was extremely low too.
Sir...please sir. I have been working without a break, in the heat for 6 hours! My fingers are about to fall off! May I please take a break, I need to quench my thirst!
Not until your shift is over! Filthy slave! If you're so tired, why don't I put you into the cistern! That will wake you up! Now, get back to work!
Pollution was a big issue, caused primarily by factories, pollution had a massive impact on people's health.
*Cough, cough* Finally time to head home, but this pollution is making me so sick! The streams are filled with waste and so are my lungs! I wish there weren't so many factories releasing smoke.
Cholera became a wide-spread disease. Many people died from it. This was because sewage often infiltrated drinking water. In the long run, poor health standards affects disease which are passed through generations.
Hi papa! I'm back from work. I can't wait to drink some water, I'm so thirsty!
*vomiting* No! Not the water! Some sewage leaked in again! I think I've got a case of cholera!
Urbanization affected the lives of many, people left rural areas to seek job opportunities. Long-term: Without the industrial revolution, we'd all still be living in rural areas.
I remember life on the farm, where such problems rarely occurred. I want to stay in my house...
Not in this urban civilzation! I hate this overcrowded urban lifestyle, I miss the rural farms. If only there wasn't so much pollution and overpopulation, it wouldn't be so bad.
