What was the Industrial Revolution, and how did it change the structure of work in the United States?

According to your textbook, approximately 90% of laborers in the United States worked on farms at the end of the 18th century. By 1900, this percentage had dropped to about 50% of laborers. Based on your readings this week, please answer the following questions:

  • What was the Industrial Revolution, and how did it      change the structure of work in the United States?
  • What effect did this shift in economic systems (from a      largely agrarian society to an industrial society) have on workers and      their families?
  • Over the past 50 years, how has technology changed the      workplace even further?
  • In what ways are your career options different from      those of your parents and/or grandparents?

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
