The Roaring Twenties Modern America Begins  Birth of the Modern Economy  The economy started to become much more diversified than ever before.  We see the service sector start to develop. Some people work in factories, and there are still a lot of Americans in agriculture (farming).  Majority of Americans Live in Urban Areas  For the first time ever, the majority of Americans live in Urban areas.  Note that the census defined a city as holding 2,500 or more people.  America Electrified  By the end of the decade, many Americans have electricity in their homes.  This allows people to have household appliances such as toasters and washing machines.  The Automobile Industry  Many if not most families own a car by the end of the decade. Getting Better All the Time…  The American Federation of Labor  This union fought for “bread and butter issues” such as: safe working conditions, better pay, lower working hours, and paid vacations.  Welfare Capitalism  GE and Ford pioneered welfare capitalism with the idea that happy and healthy workers are productive workers.  Welfare capitalism provided for the needs of employees with benefits like: health clinics, pensions, day cares, and gyms. “The Business of America is Business”-Calvin Coolidge  Republican Administrations  The 20s were largely characterized by having Republican presidents such as Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover.  They were pro-business, had a balanced budget, and the US was a creditor nation. (Meaning that other countries borrowed $ from us.)  Auto Industry  Henry Ford created the Model T car. They were uniform down to the color.  He also was the first to use the assembly line to build cars. This and the standardization of the vehicle itself made production much less expensive.  He paid his employees $5 a day which was two or three times more than what people with similar jobs at this time would have made.
