In England in the 1700's, many poor people in rural areas left their farms and moved to cities in search of work. Yet life in cities was not easy, and jobs were very hard to find. from what you know about England in the 1700's, can you explain why so many people were leaving farms and moving to the cities then?

~anything at all to help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
