This was caused by the lack of regulations and laws which allowed businessmen to get away with paying their employees unethically low wages without benefits. This lack of regulations and laws also enabled business to cut corners, which lead to unsafe product, such as spoiled meat as seen in document 2, and child labor, which is seen in document 3, in order to save money. During the gilded era, corrupt politicians added to the problems and injustices. Document 4 shows this using a comic.
Liam Lynch Mr. Ryan English III--Research 26 August 2016 The American Dream Republican nominee Donald Trump is receiving criticism for his stance on illegal immigration, and although the criticism may be in good faith, perhaps the statements being made are true. In 2014, there were 8.1 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. labor force, potentially taking jobs from work seeking Americans (Rivera-Batiz 485).

1. I believe that Reagan’s first term as the president is a result of the work administrations prior to his did the opening of China by Nixon and other administrations keeping those doors opened allowed Reagan to focus on the Soviet Union. I do not believe that his presidency was a watershed, his administration focused on the domestic and foreign equally. Trickle-down economics allowed for corporations and CEOs to pay less in taxes and did work for a short time, unfortunately greed took over, and moves to cut cost and increase shareholder profit led to the outsourcing of jobs which plagues the US work force today. Large increases in the military spending left the US better prepared to fight conventional battles on the eastern front; however,
One law was the Interstate Commerce Act which helped to economically aid workers. This aided workers because railroads had to openly publish their rates, so their companies could not be charged more than they deserve to be charged. Prior to this law, railroads could charge large companies very little and small companies too much. Another way the industrial worker was affected by government actions was through the Chinese Exclusion Act, which affected the workers socially. This act outlawed all Chinese immigration to America for ten years, although it actually lasted until 1943.
The growing of large businesses in size, number, and influenced changed the United States severely. The economy was greatly relieved but the politicians were corrupted and the people very unhappy.

A housing bubble was created by banks liberally mortgaging out homes to anyone no matter their credit and bundling mortgages together and selling them to other banks. Because of how they were bundled their credit ratings never reflected the actual risk involved; this practice was unethical but profitable until the system collapsed in 2008 and caused massive losses for both banks and homeowners. The losses were so drastic that Congress voted to bail out several of the banks at the expense of the taxpayers, many of whom were unemployed and facing foreclosure. The economy today is still recovering as interest rates and unemployment continue to return to
