It depicts the events that went on in a meat packing factory leting the world know

Secrects of health dangers and truly unsanitized enviorment. In 1905 the time of immigration

was very common, many coming from other countries in search of finnacial sucsess. During this

time there was a a novalist reporter named Upton Sinclair who was under cover as a worker in

the factory were there were rumors of unsanitary actions going on. There was no actual

evidence of these actions being conducted. People becoming sick was being reported all of the

distric but with no clear truth of were the soure was coming from. While there Sincliar reported

extream signs of health distress with meat packing falling on a dirty floor, insects were all over

machines , workers were seen with no gloves and some eving being grouned in the machines
