Advancement means to develop and improve a cause or plan. The Industrial Revolution changed our world with new ideas and technology that advanced us to a world with an easier life. “The iron and textile industries, along with the development of the steam engine, played central roles in the Industrial Revolution, which also saw improved systems of transportation, communication and banking.” (www.history.com) These changes that were occurring created the world that we live in today. Improvements in transportation and communication gave us the cell phones and cars that we have grown accustomed to on a daily basis. “While industrialization brought about an increased volume and variety of manufactured goods and an improved standard of living for some, it also resulted in often grim employment and living conditions for the poor and working classes.” (www.history.com) Although we advanced in technology and industrialization, some problems did result in the working conditions to make the future happen. Increase in slavery and child labor became a huge impact on the advancement of technology. Even though the changes that were made, caused such a great and amazing change for the world, it did have its downsides.
