The industrial revolution led to rapid changes in people's living and working conditions. In response to poor working conditions, labor movements organized alliances known as unions and pushed for reforms. Reform movements happened around the world, but started in Britain and the United States.  They focused on labor rights, social welfare, women’s rights, and working to end slavery.
