When Jurgis wonders around into a socialist rally he hears a speech that speaks to him(pg 250). The experiences that Jurgis encounter made the structure of the novel corresponding to him. His intentions affect Jurgis’s character the most because his rebirth had same similarities that Upton Sinclair have. Sinclair want to reform the everyday living of incoming immigrants that were being degraded by the meat package industry so he wanted to spread that message across to the readers. Of how this everyday living is being made in the street of the United States.
The overconsumption of carbohydrates like grains and potatoes that break down into sugar in the body also can cause these health issues. Many people are quick to point fingers at eating meat for these health problems, but there are other reasons for health problems of this such. Meat is constantly blamed for Western diseases when these diseases are new, but meat is an old food. As stated by Kris Gunnars in his article, “Humans and pre-humans have been eating meat for millions of years (19). Blaming an old food for new health problems makes absolutely no sense” (Gunnars).
In recent years, discussions and debates related to animal ethics have become heated. It is not difficult access news reports nowadays concerning how animals are treated inhumanely in food manufacturing industries. In 2014 for instance, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal shot a video and disclosed to the public how gees were overfed in farms in order to produce Foie gras. The sufferings and pains of animals in meat production have caused vegetarianism supporters to raise their voice, demanding a higher portion of human beings to become vegetarians. They claim that consuming meat products is morally unacceptable because “the action of killing animals cruelly” is morally wrong; it brings misery to them.
Jurgis started off firmly believing on his American dream of having a better life where he would work hard and earn lots of money. He took up work in a meatpacking plant where he had to sweep blood and body parts of slaughtered cattle. The job was unsafe and the conditions were bitter but he continued working a he was happy to get a job so fast. In the packinghouses the condition were deplorable, every part of the animal was used to make profit. Even spoiled meat was marked as good and sold out to public.
This has to stop its unfair on the chickens lives, they have souls and feelings too, they are breed just to live in those horrible disgusting conditions and die in the same conditions, and for what? They suffered their whole lives just to be eaten in less than ten minutes. Some don't even get eaten they just waste away. More than 16,422 people have signed a petition against McDonald’s battery cages and in result McDonald’s eventually agreed to become a free rage business but only after trying to avoid it in every way possible. This just shows what kind of a business McDonald’s is.
The reason Schlosser chose to go into the meat-packing plant himself was so the reader trusted him; and therefore could believe what he described. Next, Schlosser uses similes to describe his experience within the plant. Schlosser describes how the deeper he went into the plant the worse and more horrific it got. At first he says it just looks like the “back of your local supermarket”, but then he explains how it gets violent, and more slaughterhouse-like (169). The simile is meant to highlight the darkness of the plant on the inside rather than what it is expected to be.
Upton Sinclair wrote his novel “The Jungle” that described the issues with the food industry. The main issue was the the unhealthy and cruel working environment in the Chicago meat-packing industry and the unsanitary conditions under which food was produced. In the early 1900’s enforcing common things like hand washing, cleaning tools, using first aid to cover wounds and requiring the use of hairnets were unheard of. Therefore the meat was often contaminated with dirt, sweat, human hair and even human blood. The machinery being used to procces the meat was also an issue.
Gary Steiner 's was very unhappy at how animals are treated so his motivation to write this short story about animals and how they are being slaughtered by people daily is the animals themselves. Steiner 's writing is very cohesive and very well crafted as it displays to the readers his true feelings to the people who eat these animals and his true feelings to the animals themselves. The writing is very clear, and his ideas are very well conveyed, understanding of this short story was made easy by Steiner 's writing style and format. Steiner seemed to be quite angered by the people he sees daily eating animals as a joy or as a form of appreciation on the day of Thanksgiving or many
Then it flashes back to the past for a moment. They had to get married there because Ona’s dad didn’t approve, so they moved to America with Elzbieta Lukoszaite and her kids. When they started working, they had weak factory jobs. They saw how corrupt America was when they were hired by these guys who took a cut of their salary and butchered infected meat and shipped it to the public. The whole family just gets jerked around.
The difference between the tenements and the factories is who they affected. In the factories, the disgusting acts affected everyone. The meat that the workers were canning was not very safe. “It seemed that they must have agencies all over the country, to hunt out old and crippled and
