The application of scientific knowledge for the use of practical purposes is commonly defined as technology. During the 1920’s is when the entire craze began about technology, when the invention of the car was discovered. During this time new advancements, discoveries, and inventions improved the lives of many Americans. Technology results in expanding innovative ideas that are built on existing ideas. Different industries are developing new technologies according to the needs and requirements of today’s society. These advancements vary from generation to generation, impacting employment, agricultural techniques, social, mobile and audio technologies.
Today, there is renewed concern that technological advancement may displace much of the workforce, creating widespread unemployment. Technology has shifted employment in major ways. It has made some labor intensive jobs easier to do cutting the time in half.

Farmers use machineries such as motorized equipment, modified housing, and biotechnology, which allow improvement in agriculture. As a result farmers are able to feed more people but the repercussion is the need for less workers. Acreage has grown in size due to radical efficiency.
