Britain was able to communicate cheaply because of the sea. Because Britain was an island ,it was hard to invade,they had a strong navy. Rivers supplied water power!! Britian had COAL:) Britain is an ISLAND! Iron helped make the machines. Coal helped them to power steam engines. AND ALSO GOVERNMENT!! Unlike other Revolutions where the government didnt agree with the changes, Britians Government liked the idea of the Industrial Revolution because it made them rich. AND MORE ADVANCED!! THERE ARE NEGATIVES AND POSITIVES! BUT!! Working Class Conditions POSITIVES NEGATIVES Child Labor Crime Rate Increase Population Increase..... Pollution More Advanced Cities Mass Production..... Working Class Conditions Life in the Tenements Workers lived in unsanitary palces.They barely cleaned up the houses. This caused disease. Because they were so packed together ,their diseases spread quickly. Low Wages The workers were overworked and got low wages for all the work they've done. The Workers had no insurence.Not even the pregnant ones. They often lost limbs while working.And they had to go to work or loss the job. And the houses gave off ordor. The workers lived in packed houses.These houses held about 12 people in a room about ten square feet. Most of the houses didnt have windows. Tenement owners often turned basements and attics into places to rent. The workers had no protection to the weather.They surfered when it was hot and cold. The workers were treated poorly by their bosses.They weren't really recognized as a human should be and their life were depending on the job.This was clearly not a happy life. Child Labor Also Had Positives And Negatives The factories needed small hands to work some machines. Children grew up without an education. Children often got beaten for not doing what they were suppose to do. Children got injured by the machines Parents got extra money from child labor More workers for the factories. The Government Did Not Care The workers were many.
They didn't like they way they were being treated. They decided to strike. So they hired strike breakers. But the Government said that was illegal. Big guys who beat up the workers on strike. They lacked a good childhood. More things got made faster in the factories. The children who suffered from child labor never had a chance to be real kids.They were never able to have fun or be teenagers. Mass Production Mass production is when a factory can get alot of things made in a short time period. Because of mass production more things are available to people. The factory workers now have to rival each other . The government wants this because it makes the country more advanced. More advanced countries equals more powerful countries. Because they want more people to buy their stuff. Advantages of Advanced Countries. War England had better weapons during war because of the industrial revolution.
