They made wonderful trading industries in the country to make money on. I have an immeasurable amount of gratitude to those men, even though they caused much pain to the families working for monopolies. As the monopolies fought against labor laws, families struggle to survive. The workers only earned a pay around $1.50 a week, while the monopolies had millions of dollars and started becoming the richest men in America. I am grateful that the workers took a stand in what they believed in, and changed the way we will live forever.
