We believe that the second industrial revolution was more of a blessing for Americans, rather than a curse. With the invention of many different types of transportation, it made everything incredibly more accessible to the world, which therefore lead to so many other beneficial products and ideas. Without this revolution the world would be stuck because we would be kept within our own geographical areas without ways of purchasing and selling products. Everything would be complicated, instead of using big factories and other resources to simplify processes. The second industrial revolution increased immigrants and immigrant labor that became a major factor in all of the progressive movements. The entire second revolution was a time of growth for the United States because they continuously learned so many new things throughout this time period. This was a step forward the world needed to take on order to be where we are today.
