19th Century
By mid 19th-century, many people worked for small businesses or on farms, laboring in fields that would yield barely enough food to feed the family.
New inventions and technology
began to change that, however.

The population of urban areas grew quickly. In these overcrowded cities, laborers often suffered on back streets in poor housing, plagued by terrible sanitation, disease, and violence.

Workers expressed anger at their bosses for paying them low wages for long working hours by organizing public protests that sometimes led to violence. Millions of laborers eventually organized into
in an effort to negotiate with their bosses for better wages and working conditions.

Throughout the 1800s, the demand for labor was so great that
children were put to work

Differences in
to the different cultures of the countries.

Shift in
role of worker - Focus on Labor as the sole commodity of a worker.

The Industrial Revolution
not only the workplace but also the
rest of society: all can by goods,not just the wealthy. For the first time millions could by ready made goods.

16th-19th Century

"accumulation and use of capital had become a virtue; to
save and invest
became both individual and national goals">

America was denied European markets. This was a time when the “seeds for the
industrial revolution
and an ‘American system’ of manufacturing were sown, and the concept of the
modern corporation
took form”. America adopted at this time the ideas of “individualism, personal liberty, and rights of economic property as essential values”

For the US, the next phase leading to the Civil War, concentrated on three forces—
westward expansion, urbanization, and industrialization.
These three factors contributed jointly to business expansion.

most favorable view of any previous generation in terms of social issues
such as same-sex marriage and legalization of marijuana.

The Information Age
has created a situation in which workers who perform tasks which are easily automated are being forced to find work which involves tasks that are not easily automated. Second, workers are being forced to compete in a
global job market
. Lastly, workers are being replaced by computers that can do the job
more efficiently.
Individuals who lose their jobs must either move up, joining a group of "mind workers" (engineers, doctors, attorneys, teachers, scientists, professors, executives, journalists, consultants), or settle for low-skill, low-wage service jobs.

Industry is becoming more
information-intensive and less labor and capital-intensive
. This trend has important implications for the workforce; workers are becoming increasingly productive as the value of their labor decreases. However, there are also important implications for capitalism itself; not only is the value of labor decreased, the value of capital is also diminished. In the classical model, investments in human capital and financial capital are important predictors of the performance of a new venture. However, as demonstrated by Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, it now seems possible for a group of
relatively inexperienced people with limited capital to succeed on a large scale

encourage employers to offer better incentives

Technological changes complement the work of higher-educated workers while replacing work for mid-level workers

exacerbated wage inequality
by containing compensation for low and mid-level workers while increasing that for management where they are merit-based on profits and other indicators.
Globalization is forcing western companies to
