One of the biggest problems that arose in the revolution was the unbearable labor force inflicted upon the children of all ages. many kids did not have a life outside of the workforce which in my opinion would be quite a hard life to live.-Meadow
The biggest issue we have covered so far has been the harsh labor force towards children to help meet the needs and production of what was being introduced in the industrial revolution. In order to produce the textiles and new clothes that were being introduced kids as low as ages 6 and 8 were sent to work early in the morning for long hours. They hardly got a break and were fed very little and poorly clothed themselves. If they didn't meet the demands of work required they would be abused and beat. Conditions were harsh and it was a major issue that arose during the industrial revolution. -KM
one of the biggest problems of the industrial revolution, was the child labor and the horrible conditions they had to stand. the children were working manual labor of up to 16 hours a day some were two miles away from there homes. if they were late of did not keep up with their work they were beaten. i connected to this because earlier in English we read a book about sweatshops and the child labor that is still being used in many countries. so that means that children from the industrial revolution to now have been working in poor conditions and some against their will. ~Mary M
Xan Burnard-The Biggest problem with the industrial revolution is the pollution, because it is a problem that we still deal with today, and is killing the planet slowly.
the biggest problem i think is the child labor and how many hours they have to work and if they are not at work on time they get beaten by the owners of the mills.
jobs were lost, lots of people were starving and not eating a lot, young children are working in very hard conditions, and been beaten and 14-16 hour days, very little sleep and no breakfast. children get home from working all day and if super wasn't made then they'd go to bed and have to wake up for food later in the day.-db
parker. child labor and no laws when it came to pay wages proper amount of hours and care for the health of workers.
Child Labor was a problem that arose during the Industrial Revolution because it was much cheaper than paying a man's wage. I connected this with what we have recently studied in English about sweatshops, I feel for the children who have to give up their childhood to work in not the greatest conditions for next to nothing. What is most sad about this is it is extremely hard to break from this cycle of poverty and to acquire an education to create a better life. - Martina
the biggest problem that came up during are class about the industrial revolution was that young boys and girls are working in this mills that is hard labor work and well there doing this they would get whipped or belted if they slowed done doing there work and there hours were terrible with lots of children working more then 12 hours a day with only one meal and lots of the times they wouldn't even eat what was given to them. and in the really bad cases the were locked up at the mills so they couldn't leave and if they could escape they would just get bought back to the mill. so this created a terrible life for all these workers.

Christian J--Pollution is a thing that we can relate too cause we still burn garbage.
Child labor was one of the many problems that Britain faced during the Industrial Revolution. I felt a connection to child labor because in the stories we read the children have to work long hard hours, rarely getting breaks and I complain about coming to school and learning in a heated shelter where I get to sit in a desk and the most work I ever have to do is lift my pencil and put it to paper.- Erin Kobelka
One of the biggest problems is child labor. Kids were made to work for little pay in poor working conditions. They spent long hours working hard. I connect with this because they had to work extremely hard and I complain about having to go to school everyday and I'm sure they would easily trade lives.
Child labor was one of the worst because children were over worked
yo whats up its tyson over here i think one of the biggest problems is that there is only 1% of farmers that farm now and it use to be 88% of farmers. i connect with this one because it the food that i eat
I would say that the biggest problem is pollution. with the industrial rev. it caused people to wonder how far they can go with inventions, it made people more greedy over time, needing more new clothes, new everything, which led to factories being ran in overdrive to meet peoples needs, overtime the factories have given off a crazy amount of pollutants which hurt the environment we live in today. i connect to this because it makes me wonder if the industrial revolution happened differently maybe we would not be as concerned about our lives today.HP
I think that the loss of jobs has been the worst result of the industrialization of the world. Maybe you could use the term "Lazy". Technology has advanced this world immensely and a result of it is that people don't receive jobs because a "robot" or machine has taken their place. Our society strives to make machines do our work so we don't have to, and that to me is the biggest downfall. -Gavin Meikle
kovan- I think the biggest problem is the countrys that have never reached industrial revolution are the problems.
I think that one of the biggest issues were how little the workers were being paid because there were so many resources and amount of jobs compared to money. This causes child labor and many other issues that led to much worse situations for workers.
Industrialization is a process that was extremely consequential and beneficial to society, however it was not, by any means, a process that played out flawlessly and it certainly had its own problems. One benefit of industrialization was the improvement of the speed of production. This, however was also one of its biggest problems. TO reduce costs of labor, child workers suffered exploitation where they were required to work long days-sometimes as long as 16 hours everyday. This, although a necessary stepping stone in the advancement of industrialization, was a cruel and problematic system. Children exist to provide for the future generation- and to eventually make it. They should not be treated as sources of cheap labor in horrible working conditions. This is not healthy for their fragile bodies. Child labor was a horrible part of history, and it was the dark side of the industrial revolution.- Arian
