The to resent immigrants and grew toThe to resent immigrants and grew to

The 35 years that were compacted between the years 1865 and 1900 were filled with both new ideas and a frequent flow of immigrants that influenced the treatment and the productivity of the every day American worker. New inventions were constantly being created and innovated to better equip American industrial workers. Advances in technology such as different ways to produce steel, railroads, fast transportation, mass production, and industrialization moving into large cities impacted the everyday life of workers during that time period. Since urbanization was the most important key in a capitalistic society, technology progress was pertinent to stock workers with the tools they needed to get the job done, however that too had its downfalls, and  while at the same time immigration generated a struggle to provide them jobs because corporations preferred cheap and easy labor. 
First and foremost: immigration. Immigration by definition is defined as “the action of coming to live permanently in a foreign country.”. Immigrants looking for a stable income and a chance to make something of themselves often traveled to America and continue to this day to do just that. During the time period between 1865 and 1900 immigrants flocked the streets looking for any amount of pay in return for work. Corporate grants took advantage of this by providing their employees with bad working conditions and low wages because immigrants were more willing to subdue to these treatments rather than native born workers. Since they were more accepting, this made the common American worker dispensable among the rush of cheap, able bodied immigrants that were ready to work. Conveniently, the largest mass movement in history took place between the years 1870 and 1900 landing many illiterate young immigrants with no prior knowledge of democracy in the path of corporations. According to the U.S census of 1900, approximately 25% of the American population was foreign born. Americans began to resent immigrants and grew to develop quite a dismay for them. The American workforce disliked the fact that American companies would rather choose people from other countries rather than hire someone native born. This is were the term nativism comes into play. This is basically anti immigration feelings. Labor unions were completely nativism. They strived to limit immigration and even had acts passed to do so. For example, The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 prohibited any Chinese immigration. 
To conclude the immigration part of this essay, the everyday American industrial workers lives we’re impacted because 1.) the chance at finding a job was jeopardized because the steady flow of immigrants made them unneeded and disposable, 2.) because so many workers were immigrants and they accepted the bad treatment they were provided, companies made it a standard to provide the same treatment to all their workers. 3.) Nativism was ignited in many patriotic and unemployed Americans. It is safe to say that immigration impacted not only American workers but also immigrants, corporations, and the industrial revolution for both better and for worst.
The second impactful element to American workers of this time was technology advances. the American industrial revolution and technology outbreaks go hand in hand. The reason The industrial revolution was so wide spread and prominent was because of new technology. Technology made things such as mass production doable. However, because mass production was so commonly used, it left a lot of workers out of jobs since it could be done cheaper and faster if companies chose to mechanically get the job done. As the number of warm bodies stated to decline, people saw each other, not as co-workers, but as competition, making the workplace much more impersonal and hostile. 
Factory systems began replacing domestic systems where workers would work with simple machinery to produce the materials they were paid to dispense. This made the work load on worker more bearable and easy to do. The location often changed for them, too. Where workers may have worked from home or an attachment of their own property in domestic type systems, they were moved to factories with a crowding of other employees. Conditions were unsanitary and condensed. This, paired with wages lowering because all genders, ages and ethnicities could preform these tasks, is what prompted labor unions to rise and demand better treatment. 
Again, technology and industrialization impacted American workers lives because 1.) mass production caused a number of jobs to decrease, 2.) co-workers began viewing each other as competitors, 3.) workers moved from domestic systems to factory systems, 4.) factory systems treatment was harsh chap so the labor union formed, and 5.) wages went down due to the fact that now anyone could preform the tasks asked of them with the new technology. 
In a nut shell, both immigration and technology both deeply affected American workers lives. Weather that be from equipping them, filling in their jobs, lowering their wages, uniting them through unions or through similar dislikes. No matter who tells the story, it must be said that these two things had an impact on how we recall history
