There are many parallels between the industrialization of the United States after Reconstruction and the modernization of the American workforce in the last twenty to thirty (20-30) years as it transitions from industry to a service-oriented economy. With your knowledge of current events and what you have studied in class, compare the two (2). Please respond to the following:
- Compare the physical migration of workers during U.S. industrialization and present-day intellectual transition into a new type of workforce.
- Give at least two (2) examples of the role that technology played and plays in both scenarios.
- Based on the two (2) experiences described above, describe the roles citizens as consumers play in a country’s desire for a fast-growing and yet sufficiently stable economy.
