In the first half of the 19th century, two new classes emerged within French society: the bourgeoisie and the workers. The bourgeoisie began to play a more important role, received the right to participate in solving state issues. Workers formed a class of wage laborers that increasingly served as the “engine of the revolution.” Changes also took place among the former classes: the nobility and the clergy lost part of their influence, and the peasantry, having received land during the revolution and retaining it during restoration, was conservatively disposed towards some revolutionary transformation of society.
With the development of industry, the number of workers, whose standard of living was very low, also increased. In the cities there were many ruined artisans trying to find work. But, as you know, entrepreneurs preferred to use cheaper female and child labor.
