The gilded age was a very difficult time to live in, because the majority of people lived on or below the poverty line. There were only two types of people: rich and poor. The gilded age was a time with low safety regulations and low working pay. Workers had a hard life because the rich saw them as mere payed slaves
The Gilded age seemed to me that it was very difficult because people risked their life to build buildings. Also bosses didn't treat the workers like we would today. Workers were low paid, and bosses saw them as "slaves".
The Gilden age in my opinion was hard for different reasons. First the difference between the rich and poor were unfair the 1% of the rich were living a great life while the 99% or poor were working for a good life. Secondly working conditions in factories were unsafe and unfair they had long work hours no breaks and it was dangourers for women an especially children. Also worked for skyscrapers risked there life's working without any safety for them. Lastly even the rich life won't always good the women had to dress and look a certain way to be social acceptable and had to have sergeants help them. In the end the gilden age was not the ideal life.
In my opinion, the Gilded Age was a very difficult time period to live in. As we talked about in class, there was only a minuscule amount of people that were rich and had more money than they knew what to do with. The others were very poor and were stuck living in very small rooms with many other families. Also, during the Gilded Age, people began sending missionaries to different parts of the world, even some parts people had never heard of. This had to take a toll on the families of the missionaries.
The Gilded Age was a very difficult period to live in for the majority of people. The common person had a poor job somewhere of little qulaity and pay. Also, work conditons were unsafe, given the many deaths in factories and constructuion. For many people, life in the Gilded Age was of poor wealth and dangerous work.
In my opinion the Gilded Age was a very difficult time period to live in for most people because only 1% of the population wasn't in poverty. As for everyone else in order to make ends meet and feed their families they had to work multiple jobs. And most jobs that paid well were the jobs that were the most dangerous. If you weren't wealthy then you were risking your life everyday just to take care of your loved ones. So yes I believe that life back in the Gilded Age must have been extremely difficult.
In my opinion, the Gilded Age for everyone but the 1% was very difficult. The other 99% were required to work harder than imaginable by us just to make ends meet. The days were long and the jobs were extremely laborious, the workers were treated almost as bad at the slaves before the Industrial Revolution.
In my opinion, the Gilded Age was a difficult time for all but the 1%. While the 99% were hard at work with even some jobs being life threatening, the 1% were practically kicked back and relaxing while the poor did their dirty work. The 99% had many long days with very little pay for most if not all. Life may not be easy to our eyes these days but compared to that, this is almost a paradise.
The Gilded Age looks like it was difficult to live in because the industrial workers and farmers didn't have a good connection among each other. The workers were always working long hours in dangerous conditions for low pay. Also, working under dangerous condition there farmer didn't care about them. All they care about was to get the work done fast. Many of the workers also lived under the condition of poverty while the farmers were really wealthy.
I believe that it was hard living in this time period. Yes, the 1% were rich while the others were poor, but they earned their right to be at the top. I think it was hard living in that time period only because of the working conditions. Long hours, dangerous, dark, couldn't control the weather, and overall boring.
In my opinion the Gilded Age was a hard time to live in, however not for everyone. As we discussed in class there was 1% filthy rich and 99% living in poverty, but the article we read made it known that there was a middle class because the man was apart of it. According to the Gilded Age notes, many Americas hit a level of comfort, meaning they weren't rich nor poor.
The Gilded Age in my opinion was a very hard time period for many people. Most of the population were poor and were working in tough conditions. For example, children and women would work long hours with no breaks and could easily get hurt by the machines. Not only that but they were only getting paid with a little amount of money. Women who were also rich had a difficult time during this period. Women who were rich had to wear certain types of clothes or look a certain way to be accepted. So the Gilded Age was a very difficult time period for the poor and also rich women.
I believe that living in the Gilded age was very difficult for almost all the people. The few who were rich, their lives were easy, but most people lived in poverty. They lived in very small house with two other families and had little amount of money to buy clothing or food. It was hard for a time for almost everyone during this time.
I believe that the Gilded Age was easy if you was a rich man. First you don't have to worry about not going hungry, and you can move around a lot with no problem. Also your family line would most likely go on, because other rich families would throw their daughters at you so your families would continue in money. Also you would not having to worry about if your children would make a good education. These are some of the reason, the Gilded Age was good for a rich man
For the large majority of the population, the Gilded Age was a very difficult time to live in. 99% percent of the population were considered "not wealthy," these people being the working class or the unemployed. Finding work was not a difficult task, however, factory jobs made up a huge portion of available jobs, and typically had dangerous working conditions, low pay, long days, and mind numbing work. For one person to become rich and successful depended entirely on luck and opportunity, which is something that the majority of Americans lacked.
Personally I believe that the Gilded Age was on the easier hand for the wealthier men. For instance they could build and buy things when they wanted to. Also the children could get education as needed and the family was thought to be "set" with no worries of going hungry or any lack of necessities. But I do feel that the Gilded Age may have been difficult for women seeing that they had to live up to a man's expectation in order to survive. Such as their hair, men liked long hair so women were expected to have long hair in order to get married. Women who had short hair didn't get married. Lastly, when were expected to dress a certain way, this resulted some women's organs being crushed. But that didn't matter.
The Gilded Age in my opinion was an easy time to live in. New technologies were invented to make the middle class' life easier and fulfill their dreams. The growing economy allowed for better housing as well.
I believe that the gilded age was pretty easy. The middle class may not have as much as the upper class but they’re not in poverty yet. Because of the factories people are able to have get jobs, earn money and spend their money in department stores. Both classes may have a big difference in their wealth but they are both happy with what they have.
The Gilded Age was a rather difficult time period for those that were living at the time. The first reason being that almost all of the population was living in poverty. To put it in perspective, for every one rich person, there were 99 poor people. Which meant that it was hard to achieve wealth at this time. Another reason why it was so hard to live during this time was because the wages were low in the factories and the working conditions were rough for the employees.
The Gilded Age was a difficult time for the lower hard working class and the easiest time to live for the rich nonworking class. Working conditions were dangerous and poor. With long hours and little pay and a lot of workers were dying of boredom half the time.
The Gilded age seemed good, depending on where your view point was. If you are a rich white male, you could theoretically move from one point of the U.S. to another with general ease. On the other hand if you were poor, you were either huddled in a small room with probably 2 other families, not even including your own. Or, you are on the street not having enough money to get a house, and barley even enough to eat anything.
Living in the Gilded seemed easy. There were always new inventions and technologies being created.There were new buildings being built which provided a job opportunity to those able bodied white men. And there were better housing for better living conditions.
During the Gilded was easy for the rich white men. They could live anywhere and move at any time when they wanted. But for the poor people it wasa hard life because they weren't getting pay will from their jobs.
During the Gilded Age it was difficult for the lower class and pretty easy for the upper class. The lower class had to work very very hard in order for there to be more buildings. The upper classes didn't have to work as hard or in bad conditions compared to the lower class. Also, the pay was very limited for the lower class and they also had to work everyday for very long hours. This eventually led to a lot of people dying of boredom. Overall, the upper and middle classes lived far better than the lower class in the Gilded Age. The lower class had to work their hardest everyday, which eventually led to people dying of boredom.
I would describe the Gilded Age difficult. Many people had to work long shifts, which led to boredom, in dangerous conditions. They were also getting little pay for their shift, which was another reason for poverty.
The Gilded Age was an extremely complicated time. Living conditions for each class were different, so the difficulty was different. For the rich, life was easy, as they had all the money they needed to be comfortable. For the middle class, life was good, but not without hardship. For the poor, life was monotonous and difficult, as they had to work long days for little pay.
The difficulty of living in the Gilded Age differs depending on the class you belonged in. The upper class was rich and was able to pay for what they wanted so it was easy for them. The lower class was poor and had to do laborious or dangerous jobs making it difficult for them to live.
Living in the Gilded Age could be easy or difficult depending on what class you were in. For the rich, it seemed fairly easy because the rich had numerous opportunities and way more money. For the poor, life was hard because they worked long hours doing dangerous jobs.
Depending on the point of view of the person, the Gilded Age was easy or difficult. Coming from a rich white man, the gilded age was easy because technology kept advancing making their lives less complicated. On the other hand, poor males and females were paid much lower wages than necessary to sustain themselves.
It all depends on who you ask in the Gilded Age. It was easy for some because they could afford the new and advancing technology.Then it might have been hard because people where working in dark and cold factories working for low wages and health risk. So in the end it wasn't easy and it wasn't hard.
I believe that the people were in a bad living life in this age because they were working almost the whole time. And all for basically nothing to which they were paid vey small amount or matter yet, they still worked knowing that the condition of the work could get then kill. The farmers were no good to them and they all ran with low hopes.
The glided age was very difficult time for 99% of the people, and the other 1% had life made for them. It all depended on on the class you were in, like if you were in the upper class (1%) life was a breeze and the lower class (99%) life was really hard a rugged. Working conditions were really poor and dangerous with very little pay and long working hours. In order to be come wealthy it was the luck of the draw bc no one really knew how to become wealthy.
The Gilded Age, in my opinion, was a hard time to live in. Not only was everything getting more and more expensive by the day, it was also full of hard working people not getting paid what they deserved. There was a very large difference between the 99% and the 1% and if you didn't fall in that 1% it was hard to do anything. The 99% of the population was trying their hardest to make a living and survive while the 1% could do anything they wanted.
The Gilded Age from my point of view was easy, most think it was hard. I believe it was easy because new things were occurring to make everyone's life easier, of course it was harder than today but if you lived there it was easier than the time before that. There were rich people like there always had been and alot of poor people but their life wasnt VERY hard like it used to be. The things invented help their work become easy and the things they buy cheaper.
Life during the Gilded age was very tough. If you were born into the rich, you would obviously be rich. If you were born into a poor family it would be tough because you had to work you way up. Also, during the time period it was very hard to work your way up and become rich, so only the strong had the "chance" to change their financial status.
I feel as if the Gilded Age was a very difficult time period to live in. Everyone was living in poverty, and the condition of both working and living were poor. Despite a very small percentage of the population being rich and wealthy, the poor worked pretty much their life away at a very small wage. Working conditions in this time period were very extreme, which consisted of low wages, long hours, and dangerous jobs. The Gilded Age was only fit for a few, and those lived extremely well. All around it was a tough period to live in, and you were doing good to make it through.
Living in the Gilded Age was difficult as a majority of the population of the U.S. was impoverished. Work conditions were rough as they were based around the business men's interests and not that of the workers. People would work long hours and in dangerous conditions just to have food and shelter for their families.
The "Gilded Age" was a difficult time to live in. Often described as a time where it was glittering on the surface but corrupt underneath. The late 19th century was a period of greedy robber barons, shady business practices, and vulgar display. Most Americans living in the Gilded Age knew nothing of the millions Rockefeller, Carnegie and Morgan were truly intaking. They worked 10 hour shifts, 6 days a week, for wages barely enough to survive. The pros out weight the cons in this situation 1% of the population was thriving leaving 99% to suffer poorly.
The Gilded Age in my opinion was a difficult time period to live in for the middle class and those living in poverty. They had difficult jobs, poor working conditions and there were some bosses that did not care about their workers. As for the wealthy, they lived a extremely luxurious life. The some wealthy people had so much money that they did not know what to do with their money. For example, one wealthy man built a railroad that stretched from the east coast to the west. After the construction was completed he had it torn down. I think that it would be difficult to live in the Gilded Age as a middle class or a person in poverty, but easy to live in the Gilded Age as a wealthy person.
Of course not everyone lived in comfort during the Gilded Age, but I believe that it was easy for the most part. The middle-class did not have the money to spend extravagantly, but they had the opportunities to work for it due to new companies and technology. These, and others, were available to them for them to reach a degree of comfort.
Based on what we talked about in class and the activities we did, i would say that it was difficult to live in the Gilded Age for a some people. It was at times difficult for people in the middle class to get what they wanted but for a majority of people they got what they needed. This was also a step up from what immigrants expected so it wasn't hard for them. Of course, it was definetly not hard for the 1% of the population who was rich.
In my opinion, the gilded age was a difficult time for many people because 1% of the population was filthy rich and 99% were living in poverty. Also, the ones living in poverty were forced to work long hard hours with no breaks while getting paid a small amount of money. When working in the factories, it was easy to get hurt by the machines and the workers were treated almost as bad as slaves.
As a wealthy businessman in the gilded age, it would be pretty easy to live having a almost unlimited amount of money and almost no regulations. It's even possible to influence the outcomes of laws because you own so much.
Living in the Gilded age, in my opinion was a very difficult time for most people to live in. The middle class in the Gilded Age were the people that had money but weren't capable of buying anything they wanted, they only had enough for things that were needed. The poor worked long hours and had very harsh working conditions, to only get paid small wage. The rich had a very easy life and was not difficult at all.
The Guilded Age was both a difficult but privileged time. People who live in middle class or poverty had not only the opportunity to work, but to get paid for their labor. It wasn't very easy working in these conditions and that is where people would say the Guilded Age was a bad time period.Overall, the Guilded Age had both negative and positive aspects.
The Guilded age was quite a difficult time to live with everything going on. If you were rich then you had it easy but the majority were poor and looking for any form of a job. The jobs provided at this time were tough and very dangerous work for young and old alike. Because of this, the guided age was a very tough time to live in.
For most, the Gilded Age was a tough time especially for the poor. Not only was money an issue, but health, sanitation, and living situations as well. Jobs were absolutely terrible, low paying, and extremely dangerous. Children alongside adults experienced the harsh working conditions. A lot of the rich took advantage of the poor and their critical need of money. Getting rich was not easy in this time and usually the rich stayed rich and powerful while the lower class struggled. So, overall this age was a difficult one to live in, with little hope.
