Before the Industrial Revolution, most workers worked at home or on farms. With the introduction of machinery and factories, this work moved to centralized locations of cities.

Immigrants to the US and farm people seeking new opportunities in the industrial cities found work in textile mills and other types of factories. The working conditions were terrible and dangerous. They had to work long hours for bad pay. Often times women and children worked in these industrial factories.These conditions existed in other parts of the industrial revolution world as well.

It helped in the industrial revolution because the decreasing death rates from the advancement of producing crops, and the decrease of famine helped many people move from the old farming life to the cities which was located in Britain. People came to work in the factories and many people worked to progress the industrial revolution in Britain.

Before the Industrial Revolution, all work was done by hand, and now it is mainly done by machines. Also, when the Industrial Revolution came, the style of living for everyone changed creating other classes, other than "Rich" and "Poor"; it helped create the "Middle Class."The industrial revolution changed the way many people lived and worked due to rural to urban migration, stable wages, and mass production which led to cheaper products.

Many people went from working on farms to working in factories in the North, while industrial needs and new inventions encouraged planters to raise more cotton in the South, increasing the need for slaves
