The living conditions for the poor and working

The era known as the Industrial revolution, was a period, in which essential changes occurred in agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, economic policies, and social structure in England. From the cottage industry to a system of factory based manufacturing that comprised of complex machinery, new energy sources, and development in transportation. Prior to the changes that occurred in this period (1760-1850), manufacturing was generally done in people’s home, using simple tools or machines(Cottage industry). With the rise of industrialization, society’s attention turned from human power to mechanical power. This revolution escalated in Great Britain when a series of inventions lead to an increase of manufactured production. In an arms race people all over the world began to transition to complex machinery to perform task faster and more efficient than human labor. While industrialization lead to an amelioration in manufactured goods and a improvement in living conditions for some(middle/upper class), it also resulted in stern employment and living conditions for the poor and working class. As factories were rapidly being built, businesses needed people to work. With an abundance of people willing to work, employers and business owners could regulate the earnings to as low as they wanted because they knew people were always willing to work as long as they got paid. Work conditions were horrendous. men, women, and children labored long hours for very low wages with hazardous work spaces, poor sanitation, and no job security.

Instead they continued to keep the working class suppressed by leaving these issues unaddressed. During this time there was a very influential man name named Karl Heinrich Marx, whom was born in Prussia on May 5, 1818. He was one of the nine kids born to Heinrich and Henrietta Marx. His father was a successful lawyer and activist for Prussian reform. He was homeschooled until he was 12, then attended Jesuit high school in Trier, Germany for 5 years (1830-1835). In October of 1835, Marx began studying at the University of Bonn for two semesters, until he was imprisoned for drunkenness and disturbing the peace.  At the end of the year his father made him transfer to the University of Berlin. In Berlin, Marx studied law and philosophy and was first introduced to the philosophy of G.W.F. Hegel, who was a professor at Berlin until his passing in 1831. At first he was not very fond with Hegel, but then associated and became involved with the Young Hegelians, which is a radical group of students who criticize the politics  and religious establishments of the day. In 1836, Marx became
