Describe the measures workers during the second industrial revolution took to improve conditions. Also describe technological innovations that improved urban life.

My answer: Workers attempted to unionize in hopes of better pay and work conditions. My problem is this is the only measure I can think of so is that all these workers did was try to unionize? Some technological innovations including the steamship, the automobile, electricity, street lights, and the telephone all helped improve urban life. Is this answer correct? And are there any more inventions?
