Workers not being treated right by big businessmen?

Workers of the Sinclair Meat Packing Plant speak up today about their working conditions, and how unsanitary the food is coming out of the plants. One worker stated, "An employee would scoop up meat that is piled up in the corner of a room with a shovel, and if there was a dead rat within the meat, a worker would not trouble themselves to take it out!" Others claim of the horrors of the storage areas, with rat feces on the floor and people falling into the boilers with the cooking meat. Due to these conditions, there will be an inspector arriving at the plant within a week, and until then, well, the workers will have to manage.

Safety First!

Progressivism is the favoring of progress, or the change and improvement as opposed to keeping things as they are. In this political cartoon, it shows the difference in business officials compared to the actual workers' well being, while all the business leaders are looking for profit. These business leaders treat their workers to poor, dangerous, and unsanitary working conditions for very low pay. Doesn't that sound like a great job?

War Update! What Caused This Terrible War?

Europe- The conflicts all started on June 28, 1914, when Gavrilo Princip assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand. European rivalries lead to the outbreak of war in 1914. Nationalism, imperialism, militarism, and alliances set the main stage for war. At the beginning time of this Great War, Kaiser Wilhelm II was the ruler of Germany, and on August 4, 1914, the German troops crossed the boarder into the neutral country of Belgium, which caused Great Britain to join in the war because they had promised to defend Belgium. Then came the war, with militaries using many weapons to kill their rivalries, including poison gas, machine guns, airplanes, tanks, and especially trench warfare. Tanks could cross through No Man's Land with ease, going right over the barbed wire fences to the other enemy lines, being protected by the heavy metal sides of the tank. It soon turned out, though, that trench warfare created a stalemate, or deadlock, resulting in using new weapons and technology, especially poison gas that could be thrown to the opposite enemy line.

Movies! Radios! Entertainment!

After the invention of Phonographs, Radios come along, revolutionizing our music industry! Although many people have different opinions about jazz music, most jazz right now is blues-type tunes. Want a new form of entertainment? Movies are becoming very popular throughout the 1920's, especially for people who returned from war. Most movies or films as of now are silent, except for films accompanied by live musicals. All of you out there wanting to see a movie, head on over to your nearest theater to see a film today, or if you're in a bit of a pinch, go on over to a Nickelodeon to see a film today!
