Two titans of the steel industry, and one journey that went became sour all revolving around one large steel company and the battles it took to reach millions. That is what I say when I think of Andre Carnegie and Henry Clay Frick. In the 1870’s a strong and extraordinary team was in the making between these two men that was unknown at this time. Carnegie set out to be extremely successful in the steel industry. Carnegie began building despite the depression that was in the future. Over time there were positive happenings. What comes along with positive aspects also comes the negative aspects as well. Frick became partner to Carnegie in 1889, and the positive adventures began.

The Carnegie Company would then push prices down and retain workers. The Homestead plant was acquired in 1883 which $4 million was put forth to equipment.

The Union wanted to renegotiate however, Frick had a stipulation. That was lowering minimum…

“The survival of the fittest” seems to…
