Wanted for being a Robber Baron

Henry Clay Frick is considered a robber baron. He bought out all his competition and made a partnership with Carnegie. He controlled most coal and coke industry. Frick also brought in strike-breakers and was known for his "anti- worker and anti-union stance." He lowered wages for his workers, refused to negotiate with Unions, and refused to let Union members work for him. Not only was he cruel to his workers, he used a lot of his money to build his huge mansion. Although he did donate some money to different charities, it wasn't until after he died.
