The rise of new technologies allowed for new industries to sprout out, which included Food Processing (Flour Mills, brewing, meat packaging, etc.), which would eventually shift to dairy, Leather (tanning, boots, etc.), Textiles (spinning and weaving), Tobacco (cigars, cigarettes, etc.) and Wood (sawmills, pulp and paper, etc.), in new areas. All of these industries led to the development of unions, who fought for the rights of workers. However, many of them are striked down.
