Storyboard Text

  • In the 1870s the cities started to grow quicker due to the many helpful features the city had. Now that the city was growing so large it meant that more diseases were spreading. Scientist called the causes of the diseases the germ theory. Finally some workers created mutual-aid societies which reduced the number of sick people.
  • During the Industrial Revolution millions of people were working in the factory.The workers had rigid schedules and the shifts were usually up to 12 to 16 hours a day. They lost fingers,limbs and even their lives. The coal dust released from the machine destroyed the lungs of thousands of children. since demands were rapid workers created assembly lines to work faster.
  •    As industrialization progressed the cities started to move west. While this happened the city became more healthy and started to get urban renewal. This took down all the tenement housing to create boulevards and public buildings. After a while the splendid housing pattern shifted . Now the poor were moved into slums 
  • The Industrial Revolution brought many harsh lifestyles to the millions of people living in the city. Due to the rapid urbanization it led to population growth and higher demands for workers. This also caused the housing to become  more compacting making people have to live in tenements. they struggled living in these nasty smelling slums.
  • As an end result to the inequity of the workers conditions reformers demanded laws for their rights of being human.  This helped them be able to create a workers  organization that were called labor unions which gave the workers better wages. 
  • Overall, the Industrial Revolution became more successful with the workers lives. The revolution offered the standard of living which showed the comfort in society. This showed that families ate dietary meals unlike before. although there was so much success there still was inequity between workers and the middle class.
