Urbanization and it's effects

By: Eric Husemann

Working Conditions: People worked long irregular hours, also some jobs were dangerous such as coal mining to fuel factories. No type of heating or cooling system so temperatures increased and decreased at rapid rates.

Living Condition's: There were awful living conditions. People lived in run down houses and apartments that were very compact with other families so it was very cramped. Treatment rooms (Hospital) housed many which caused problems for more sickness and evenly spread treatment.

Child Labor: Children worked long hours and most were forced to do work because they needed to help provide for their families. Children worked hazardous jobs just like adults, this made injury more prone for children.


Definition: becoming more life a city.
