World History
Laura Gauthier Negative Consequence #1 Factory System of the Industrial Revolution Air pollution:
Before the factories were built there were not many machines burning coal, oil, or fossil fuels. All of which produce air pollution. Air pollution does not just affect the atmosphere but also people. We breath in the air pollution and it affects our bodies in a negative way. You can physically see the pollution going into the air. The smoke coming out of the chimneys is the air pollution. Negative Consequence #2 Dangerous working conditions:
The people working in the factories are at great risk every time they are near a machine. Most of the people working the machines are not properly trained. Also the people who work the machines are young women and children. The clothing they wear are their everyday clothes, they don't have special clothing to wear to protect them. In addition normally their clothing is loose fitting. Which means that their clothing is more likely to get stuck in the machines. Positive Consequence #1 Provides jobs for millions:
Even thought the new machines took the place of the weavers and the spinners, people still have to maintain and control the new machines. The factories created jobs for millions. Now more people could have a job and get paid. You would think less people would be dying from malnutrition, due to having more money to spend on food. Intended purpose of the factories The intended purpose of the factory system is to speed up the production of goods. Before the industrial revolution, people would stay in their homes and make the products. The spinning wheel and machines for weaving were kept in the person's house and ran completely on man power. The first new machine was called the Spinning Jenny it could do the work of 16 spinners and relied completely on water power. The industrial revolution completely changed the way products were made. Positive Consequence #2 Britain gains more money:
Since the factories make it so textiles were made faster, Britain could sell more product. The more goods they sell, the more money they make. The industrial revolution certainly helped Britain's economy. With the government having more money they could be able to make changes to the towns such as paved roads, railroad tracks, bridges, etc.
