Another negative social consequence of the Industrial Revolution was 3.alot of people were unemployed due to the invention of
factories. This could’ve been avoided if factories were’nt relied on to do all of the work and people were still relied on to do work as well.
Even though the inventionof factories brought forth great unemployment, the factories still needed people to work the machines which brings
me to the next negative social consequence of the Industrial Revolution, which was 4.workers getting sick and injured due to the unsafe
equipment in the factories and breathing in coal dust from the factories. This could’ve been avoided if the workers were provided with dust mask
and safer equipment.
Another negative social consequence of the Industrial Revolution was 5.workers protesting for getting very low pay. This could’ve been
avoided if the employers paid the workers more money for the work that they did. The last social consequence of the Industrial Revolution was
6.urbanization, or the movement of people to cities. This could’ve been avoided if people didn’t have to work their own farm and make their own
clothes and there was no fammine.
In summation the Industrial Revolution brought forward great change to society, both good and bad. The negative social consequences of the Industrial Revolution could have been avoided or changed if things were done and thought over differently.
