Question by : 1850-1899 article about Norway and what it was like?
I need to find an article about Norway and what it was like in 1850-1899
Answer by Claystead
I’m sorry, I could only find this little snippet:
In 1850, Norway was still a pre-industrial society, with 3/4 of the population involved in fishing and agriculture. There had been little development in Norway during the last 150 years and there were few who believed that Norway would undergo the change which took place over the next 50 years.
Population growth in Norway from the 1800s led to a surplus of labor in rural areas, increase the number of smallholders and land shortages. Most people who worked in agriculture not only lived off the land, but engaged in fishing and logging as well. The work was hard and there were few aids and in harvest season children also had to make an effort. From 1850 the population grew quickly and developed new industries in the cities, forcing the changes.
Land shortages and surpluses of labor meant that many moved from villages to the cities or emigrated to the United States. People walk meant that there was a shortage of labor in the villages, which meant that many farmers had to move to a more standardized management where the use of machinery was important in order to operate the farm.
People walk out also that there was good access to labor in the cities, and the industry began using machines that made production more efficient. Steam machines made that no longer relied on hydropower for building factories, and much industry grew in locations with good access to raw materials or in cities with a good harbor.
Many of the machines were difficult to maintain for adults because it was difficult to get to, so there were many children who worked with machines in factories. This can be seen as a continuation of how children had to take part in farm work in the villages. Child labor was widespread and the children often had to work long hours, and the teachers were tired of students who fell asleep in class. There were teachers, not parents, who agitated against child labor. Parliament passed legislation in 1892 that determined that children under 12 years are not allowed to work, and children under 18 should not work more than 10 hours.
