Industrial Revolution 2 The Improvements of the Industrial Revolution that Lead to the Industry of Today The Industrial Revolution sparked much change at the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century. The nature and natural way of doing things for most people of the era changed greatly starting from where people were able to work down to the most basics of family life. There were numerous inventors that were vital to the advancement and continued progress of the Industrial Era. Most of these inventors came up with crafty solutions to problematic issues that arose of the time, making things seem much easier for the workers of the time. With the start of change it would appear to be obvious that change would continue throughout the era and beyond. The present day gives a view as to how much things have really changed and how much can still change in the future. The conditions started of the Industrial Revolution started off as appalling and disgusting. Conditions were often unsafe and unsanitary for most workers. There were many workers in the early stages of the Industrial Era that lost limbs and even died. There were often lots of cruelty, such as rape or abuse that happened due to the majority of employers being more like slave drivers than average people with authority. ( Bentley, Ziegler, & Streets, 2008) As we see in the report from the House of Commons “In 1832 said that there are factories, no means few in number, nor confined to the smaller mills, in which serious accidents are continually occurring, and in which, notwithstanding, dangerous parts of the machinery are allowed to remain unfenced. The report added that he workers were often abandoned from the moment that an accident occurs; their wages are stopped, no medical attendance is provided, and whatever the extent of the injury, no compensation is afforded." (Spartacus Educational, 2009)” Many people were beaten for the poor performance started to slip or fall behind.
