Cottage Industry and the Factory System
First Argument Claim
How did the cottage industry decline in British society? According to Harris, J. (1981) Journal of social policy “The Sweated trades: Outwork in nineteenth-century Britain,” review by Bythell (1983) ascertain the cottage industry opens access to the development of home employment in family. Families spun yarns into textile in the comfort of their homes for an income, with the help of hand tools. Business operator supplied raw materials, distributed to cottage industry to assemble into finish garment. People begin buying extra merchandise, textile trader look for quicker and cheaper technique of producing fashion.
According to the article, “Cottage industry and the Factory system” retrieve from the website http://www.historywithmrgreen.com. Illustrate “the cottage industry suited to pre-urban times; workers did not travel from home to work, due to the state of the road is a footpath.” “Cottage industry had some flexibility, to balance farm and household chores with the factory system; this being especially important in winter.”
Mantoux, P. (1962) express these eras transfigure the way people worked and lived. “New knowledge invented, a large division of the residents migrate from the countryside to urban area in quest of employment.” “Factories used far less manpower per unit of production and therefore lowered product cost.”
Bythell (1983) echo several writers’ observation “Man has been able to make tools for himself.” Bythell also prove the argument of this essay, machinery created an increase for factory system production, and caused a decline to cottage industry.
