There were many contributing factors that promoted the industrial development of the United States. But two that had the most impact from 1865 to 1900 was both labor, and business management. Labor was a large contributor to the promotion of industrial development. With large amounts of labor abundant from migration and immigration into the states, this allowed manufacturing to increase in the amount of products produced per day. With the migration of many Russians and Greeks, the amount of immigrants increased daily. With this never ending supply of workers, industries thrived with producing their products, and with the want from the country for their products, this promoted the development of the industry. Business management also had a huge impact in the promotion of industrial development. The management was the foundation of each of the industry, and in the end decided the success or the failure of the business. Many of the managements of these businesses treated their workers poorly by making them work long hours with little to no pay. This made the life of the urban industry workers hard and tedious because most lived in or below poverty level. At this time of mass immigration the idea of nativism erupted. This to Americans meant that if you look different from us, you don’t belong here. With this idea, the people did not care about the treatment of these people, in the end still becoming successful and was major promotion. But some managers took care of their

The theory has proven to be very effective in the United States. It began changing from a agricultural society to an industrial nation. With the changes in the United States there were more requirements and a decent response from the citizens for more public administrations functions and programs to be established. Public administration changed in the United States after WWI, as the population increased so did the need for public works, public health, and…
status. The thought of a country having a price tag on quality education is unfair, however, very true pertaining to education in the United States. Minorities and people in poverty are educated unequally. “Only one-third of American students achieve proficiency in reading and math by our nation’s own standards. Two-thirds of African- American and Hispanic students achieve well below grade level” (Chubb 1). The need to be educated in the American work force is escalating exponentially. Ten years ago…

Economic History 518
March 19, 2011

Although there have been many speculations made about what may have lead the way for the U.S economy to grow, education tends to stand out among the rest. From the early 1900’s to the late 1940’s, education…
Milwaukee’s and the Black Migration
It was until the First World War that blacks started to spread across the United States, leaving their Southern states. Buchanan says, (1973) “The foundries, tanneries, and meatpacking plants recruited black help because the war had cut off their supply of cheap European immigrant labor” (p. 131). With the decrease in immigrant movement from other countries, companies needed new employees to keep their businesses going. Most of these employees ended up being…

Water pollution has high rates in the united states as well as any other place in the
world. Industries and factories in the united states dump their wastes into bodies of water
causing massive damage to not just the water but the environment. Around 70% of the
industrial waste is dumped into the water bodies where they pollute the usable water
supply. The United States is no different than other countries around the world in polluting
the water, mostly caused by factories…
