Make a story about the changes in the XVII-XVIII centuries. on behalf of Western European: a) peasant; b) a hired worker; c) the owner of the manufactory (optional). Explain the reasons for these changes in the story.
I am an ordinary peasant. And I will tell you about the changes that have taken place recently. Serfdom has almost disappeared. But feudal dependence remained. We pay the lord a land tax and quitrent in kind, we perform some types of corvee work and other duties, we pay taxes in favor of the state, church tithes. Some of my acquaintances managed to buy their allotments from the lords, while others were driven off the land in order to turn arable land into pastures for sheep.
b) hired worker
I am an ordinary salaried worker. I work in a shipyard for the construction and repair of marine vessels. Many of my friends work at factories. Recently, their number has increased greatly. My acquaintances are not engaged in performing several actions, but only do one specific operation and at the same time hone their professional skills. They are true masters of their craft.
c) the owner of the manufactory
I am an ordinary manufactory owner. And I am amazed at the changes taking place that scare me. There is no more work in the village and no money, all the peasants come to me, to the manufactory. I have to teach and accept them. Because of this, the number of people I hire is growing. Yes, that’s good, because now my manufactory produces a lot and sells a lot. It is bad now for the weavers who have gone bankrupt because of cheap Indian fabrics.
