16 Workers lose jobs to machines- (technological unemployment) People began to relocate in search of work: Emigration/Immigration (vocab) These conditions will lead to REFORM movements…

17 Reform movements… Labor UNIONS… Collective bargaining Picket/Strike/Boycott

18 “Industrial Warfare”… (Workers vs. Employers) Proletariat vs. Bourgeoisie) All of this is according to Karl MARX…

19 Governments began to abandon ‘Laissez- Faire’ in Labor- related matters… This will be called SOCIAL Legislation Begins in England with the…

20 Factory Act of 1833 Mines Act of 1842 Then things like Social Security laws… Eventually Spreads to Germany, France, and eventually the US…

21 Movements to Displace Capitalism: SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM (Marxism): Socialists sought to reform society through government/economic changes… Robert Owen/Utopian Socialism (impractical-too idealistic/didn’t work)

26 Marx believed Socialism/Communism was inevitable and that Capitalism would eventually self-destruct… However, he was WRONG!

27 Capitalism would change/improve over time and incorporate many changes brought about by the Labor movement and governments who passed Social Legislation
