Hopelessly Bound to the Stake

The three pieces of information I chose that supported the cartoon were how Laborers
were forced to work fourteen to sixteen hour work days in order to fulfill their expecations of there boss, they worked in unsafe
conditions with people possibly dying and getting hurt, and they were payed very very little even though worked in such dangerous places. These made labor unions necessary becuase due to the bad treatment, the unions got together to fight for better treatment as in working conditions. They also workwed to get higher wagers and shortewr working days. The goverment helped make monopolies since the industralist were the ones that brought them money and helped them make the laws. The money in poltics contributed to freedom of speech and this cartoon on how monopolist controlled workers out workering them.
