I will Include at least five examples in my discussion. Before the industrial revolution, people didn't need clocks; they worked from sunrise to sunset. After the revolution they needed clock to keep up with there work schedule. Most Americans lived in the country,farming. After the revolution most Americans lived in the city's. Many children work in factory's to earn money for there family. Before the revolution things were very quiet but after the revolution there was lots of noise due to the machines. Also people suffered form lunge damage due to all the extra air pollution. Before the revolution children didn't have public schools but fter the revolution public school started to pop up everywhere. That are some of the examples of how the industrial revolution helped/hurt us.
