Why was the decade of 1830s known as great economic hardship in Europe

The decade of 1830s brought in a large-scale of unemployment in Europe.

Most of European countries witnessed employment opportunities going low in number, whereas job seekers were many.

Cities were extremely overcrowded.

As a result, slums emerged as more people migrated from the rural areas to the urban areas.

Small producers in towns faced stiff competition from the imports of cheap machine-made goods from England where industrialisation was more advanced, especially in textile production
