Throughout The Jungle, Jurgis and his extended family suffer numerous tribulations due to poverty, misfortune,difficulty with the law, alcoholism, illness, corruption, and abysmal working conditions. Jurgis and his family traveled from Lithuania to achieve the American dream. They were met with nothing but tragedy and heartache yet they believed that they would make it someday, they would be the American dream. In spite of the situation in which Jurgis resided, ultimately by the conclusion of the novel he found deliverance from destitution and despair through joining the Socialist party movement.
When Jurgis went to work for Brown's killing beds, a slaughterhouse, he soon found out that not everything was done sanitarily and by the books. In one incident, a cow that was ready to calve was brought into the slaughterhouse to be butchered because the packers wanted to save time and cattle food. This was not acceptable according to government standards, but whenever it did happen an employee would go and tell the boss and the boss would then initiate a conversation and distract the government inspector. By the time the government inspector came back the cow would be cleaned out and the entrails, including the calve would have disappeared, someone was to slide all of the innards under the trap for later use. Depending on what task an employee performed at the slaughterhouse determined how hazardous it was for the employee to work. If one of the employees in the pickle rooms scrape their hand or finger pushing a truck they might end up with a sore that could put the worker out of work all the joints in his fingers or the skin on his hands might be eaten away at by the acid. On the other hand, the butchers, floors men, beef-boners, and trimmers would not have to worry about acid, they have to worry about sharp metal objects, such as a knife. It was rare to find someone, in one of the positions mentioned above, that has full use of …

The Jungleby Upton Sinclair is a harsh representation of how life was in the 1900's. It is about how
people, not just foreigners, but Americans as well had to struggle just to live and to keep on living even at
the bottom of society. It tells how a family has to endure hardships and tragedies just to barely make it.
Stories and rumors were being told by many to persuade people to leavetheir country and go to America
in search of happiness and success. But what was told turned out to be false in the sense that success and
happiness are exactly the opposite. What a small Lithuanianfamily found out was that America wasn't
One problem that faced this Lithuanian family is that they needed money. They were told that
you made more money when working but they were not told that everything cost more as well. The family
that included, Jurgis, Antanas, Marija, Ona, Jonas, Teta and her children were in America without a place
to live and start their lives over again. Without a place to live they luckily find a friend from their
homeland that tells them where they can live for low costs. The place they were sent to was a tenement
shelter where it was over run and filled with rodents. But being new to America and not having jobs this
is all the family could do to stay out of the cold.
Food was another problem that faced the family. Without work combined with the cost of living
the family had little money for food. With twelve family members food was a necessity. But you can't buy
Already Sinclair has portrayed life in America is not what it is made out to be. Problems in
society such as unemployment, lack of food, and lack of places to live, have all contributed to the Family's
With the family down on themselves the healthy, big, and strong Jurgis sets out to help the
family by finding work and supporting the family. Jurgis find a job at a stockyard where animals
