Industrialization and working conditions

Industrialization and Working Conditions


I industrialization spreads

I. Industrialization Spreads

A. Industry comes to America

  • Samuel Slater a young millworker arrived to America from Britain in 1789.

  • He used his knowledge of the machinery created by water frame inventor Richard Arkwright for combing and spinning cotton  his mill opened in 1793 in Rhode Island

  • Textile mills spread throughout New England- ex. Lowell, Massachusetts where 10,000 workers were employed in the Mills by 1850.

B. Changing Labor Conditions

  • Businesses were not regulated by the government there were no laws about hours, safety, or child labor

  • Early 1800s British workers formed labor unions to represent the issues of the workers

  • Parliament soon banned unions and strikes (work stoppages)—what do you think their reason was for this action?

  • 1832- Sadler Report described abuses in factories and led to Parliament passing laws that limited work hours and require child workers be at least nine years old.

  • 1871- labor unions became legalized in Britain
