Social Problem 
addressed during 
the Industrial Age 
(social movement, 
law, etc.)?

change from the 
industrial age it is 
nothing like back 
then  

when they were 
broke into threw 
they place the 
people and their 
different categories 
of working in those  

as it was like back 
then it has 
completely change 
we do not have 
those like we did 
years ago   

change in the cities   they had three 
different groups the 
upper class,middle 
class and the lower 
class. the highest

home was

been doing what 
the the adults 
stayed home to do 
and the adults

they have really 
changed. kids

graduate they can 
no longer work .
