Industrialism; Similar to many things it had positive and negative effects. For example, the big factories could give many men, women, and children jobs with no past experience needed. On the downside, most industries, and factories were so focused on the profits, owners lost sight of what was important. The CEO’s didn’t care about their workers. Which lead to harsh and even dangerous working conditions, and unfair wages. The factories became so focused on the big picture of expanding the company to make more profit they did not care the sacrifice the workers had to make.
Workers soon formed unions. These factory workers could come together to fight against the unfair conditions. For employers unions became harmful. Before the unions, the factories could hire many people, force them to work long shifts with low pay. After the unions had formed, and workers began to go on strike. The factories then started to fall behind on orders. When the factories are not able to supply the demand they lost money.
The unions were helpful to the workers though. The worker’s voices became louder when they became united. If only one worker had gone on strike then the company would just replace them. However, when that one person formed a union, and they all stood together they were able to show the employers things had to change.
