Problems/conflicts in the story
I was surprised to learn about the terrible things that people had to go through when working in the meat factories.
If I were the Character I probably would have moved away from packing town and found other work far away from there.
One thing that reminded me of my life is that Jurgis and Ona who are the care givers work so hard to support there family. This reminded me of my mom and dad ,especially my dad who has missed birthdays and holidays to support his family and without him I would be where I am today.
I don't like how the people were treated in the book and how even when they worked hard they still didn't get a break from poverty and never live the American Dream.
