Working Conditions During the Industrial Revolution
Thanks For Watching
Children worked up to 19 hours a day. Not only did those children work for long hours, but they also were in horrible working conditions.
Often children worked before they went to school.
Children plowing and harvesting land outside of a factory.
Women working at a knitting mill.
Many children were unhappy and fatigued by the work they did in the factories.
Often times, factories were overcrowded and hectic.
People working in factories often followed the same routine day to day along with their neighbors or children.
Children were usually overseen by an adviser. If the child was not working the adviser would punish the child, sometimes chaining them to the machine.
In most factories the passageways are narrow, there are no any safety systems, windows, air conditioners, or good bathrooms.
More people are working from their homes which give them the opportunity to work in a comfortable environment.
These factories mainly rely on the work of technology
Today children consider house work as a hard job. Mainly because its the only job they've had.
Some people work part-time or begin the working world by working at fast food restaurants or becoming a waiter.
In bigger offices their is usually a receptionist desk to greet the customer and make the customer feel welcomed.
Today there are assembly lines to get work done faster.
This textile factors are mostly controlled by technology and maintenance
by people.
Machines are very dangerous. Many children are often injured or killed while working with them.
Today if children are required to work they normally attend school first.
For some children today, having a job is an option.
Although many people complain about cubicles, the only dangers are becoming bored or lonely.
In most cases today, to get a full-time job you have to be an adult. During the Industrial Revolution children and adults had to work for most of their day, but now daysm men only work maybe 40 hours a week.

Nature of Work
The economy began to move towards the production of manufactures and industrial goods, rather than agricultural staples. The evidence for this is built upon the Percentage of GDP which is composed of Manufactured Goods, and Agricultural Goods, respectively. Countries began to produce and export a greater share of manufactures than ever before.
Women's Role in Society
The industrial Revolution made more job opportunities available for women.
They had low paying jobs such as Laundry workers.
Women worked in the textile factories as seamstress, and miners.

Women began to work more hours than previously so; and with the Industrial Revolution the demand for children in societies tended to increase, and thus birth rates grew substantially. Women in particular were a driving force in the Outwork sector of the economy, which would lay the foundations of a consumer revolution.
