The Industrial Age accompanied America into the Twentieth Century. In the 1900-1909 decade, factory jobs lured rural families to the cities. The first electric appliances were introduced into the American home and by the end of the decade a few automobiles were chugging along the rustic buggy paths. Many Americans had leisure time to enjoy the theater and Vaudeville was at its peak. Working conditions, however, were bad and workers needed laws to protect them. In addition, growing cities brought problems. President Theodore Roosevelt led the people who called themselves Progressives in efforts to right these wrongs. The programs established during the Roosevelt Era impacted America throughout the Twentieth Century.
