Perspectives on Industry
As factory work replaced artisan labor and mass production disrupted small-scale local economies, many in the working class found themselves spending long hours at dangerous jobs with no protection against injury or abuse. Industry also created new problems such as pollution, and gave rise to the Gilded Age, a time of monopolies and great socio-economic inequality. In this activity, you will have a chance to consider some of the complications that arose during this pivotal era.
