The Paradigm Shift Project
The Industrial Revolution caused a seismic shift in the lives of the workers who made it all possible. Tremendous fortunes were created, often due to the work of folks who were paid subsistence wages. No one knew what they were worth or what was appropriate to ask for the jobs that were being created.
Now we are in the throws of the Digital Revolution. And again, we do not know what we are worth or even how long our jobs will remain.
Experiencing the lives of workers in the late 1800s through their autobiographies, what can we discover about the people who lived through the greatest upheaval in human history... until the upheaval we are living through now.
What can the past tell us about our future?
