Whether it was on the bottom or top, the rich and powerful made sure to keep them on the top and everyone else on the bottom. In Sinclair’s book The Jungle, he displays how the Chicago meat factories treated the immigrant workers horribly. Jurgis learns of this new method the factories called “Speeding-up” Sinclair writes,
