The Factory
The Factory is from Chapter 9 of Upton Sinclair’s famously known expose, The Jungle. This book will educate students on the extremely horrific conditions in the Chicago meat-packing factories and the hardships the workers experienced there due to the corruption that existed. Upton Sinclair is an exemplary muckraker and is a prime example of an upstanding citizen. His purpose was to inform people about this morally bankrupt industry and through this piece successfully does so.
