Big businesses, such as oil and railroad companies owned by John D. Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan, tended to dominate politics. Even businesses on smaller scales did very little to provide security for workers, which fueled the desire for reforms even more. The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911 was a catastrophic event that proved a change was desperately needed, but when the owners were sentenced and merely fined, it only seemed to, once again, prove that the courts did not side with the victims. In response, more and more people, such as Rose Schneiderman, began to attempt to organize unions because of the lack of support from the government. Although the government did make attempts to stop monopolies and trusts, such as the Sherman Antitrust Act, the attempts were not strong enough to make any progress.
In 1962 United States Steel and other leading steel corporations increased their steel prices, despite of the fact that the United States was emerging from a recession. John F.

Not long after Congress passed the first laws regulating the industry in hopes it could protect people from unsanitary handling of food. This was the Progressive Era in real action and Sinclair was telling a story that people still aren 't completely hearing today. Sinclair was a devout socialist and while his perceived cure may not have been the answer for all the world 's woes, his belief in watching the effects of unregulated capitalism is still a struggle in today 's world where so many live in greed, excess and without a care for their common man. What would he have written about the financial collapse in 2008? Or the oil spills over the last few decades?
America felt that trades between them and allied nations were being taken advantage of, and they felt that they just needed to end the war.

Many Americans break the laws of California and other states everyday. Frank Trippetts argument is that many people who say that they do not break the law are actually breaking in a way that no one can find out about.Frank Trippett supports his claim by showing examples of different ways of breaking the law. I disagree with the author's argument because it is unrealistic to not pay your taxes with the code that is given to the United States government, people polluting the world with loud noise, or speeding down the highway. Some people who disagree with his views will say that it is okay to break the law if no one sees it or hears about about it. The counterargument is that when someone is speeding down the highway it is the cops job to go after the person who is speeding.
