5 Industrial Revolution The 1920s experienced an economic boom after WWI New technologies lead to the mass production of many products in urban factories For example, the manufacturing of automobile was revolutionized by Henry Ford, making cars available to many people

6 Urbanization In the 1920s the urban population increased as people were moving to the cities to find work in the new industry The government supported policy that benefited urban businesses but hurt farmers Between urban population increased by 14,797 while rural population only increased by 2,267

7 Immigration During the early 1900s there was an enormous amount of immigration into the United States During the 1920s efforts were made to lessen the flow of immigration The Immigration Act of 1924 put a limit on the numbers of immigrants allowed to enter However, immigrant populations were already established in cities

8 Ghettos Ghettos and slums were created to house all the new factory workers Migrant and Immigrants were forced to live in these urban ghettos and were separated by ethnic group Many conservative (native born) American despised the culture and traditions of these new immigrants

9 Ethnic Gangs and Machine Politics In these urban ghettos, small gangs formed between ethnic groups and families. Street gang leaders were employed by politicians to secure votes through campaigning and violence Machine politicians used these corrupt methods to win elections

10 THE PROHIBITION

11 The Prohibition The 18 th amendment, which banned the sale, transportation, and production of alcohol, sparked an colossal increase in organized crime Suddenly gangs could provide a service, alcohol, that made them extremely popular in their communities Many mobsters, such as Al Capone, became admired celebrities to some people “If I break the law, my customers… some of the best people in Chicago, are a guilty as me” ~Al Capone

12 21 st amendment The 21 st amendment repealed the 18 th amendment This amendment took a toll on organized crime, minimizing the finances and popularity of mobs Organized crime did not disappear, but it did shrink and change
