After learning about the history of America from 1870 to 1900, you should come away with the idea that although our economy was doing extremely well, the wealth did not reach all sectors of society. As a matter of fact, the working class in densely populated, urban settings, worked longer hours to keep up with high demands for manufactured goods. Salaries did not keep pace with the rise in prices for most consumer goods. This left the common laborer with the double pressure of working harder for less buying power! For this chapter write a 1-2 page essay that highlights these changes in the working class. In other words, describe the social worlds that the likes of J. Rockefeller and A. Carnegie created for laborers in major eastern cities. What was it like to be a laborer during these times?
