@skyBudgie9303 This is true, because during the gilded age you had the rise of industrial America, Railroads, and wealthy businessmen who had considerable political control. there was an notion at the time that Americans who were poor or out of work deserved to be in that position and it was not societies obligation to help them. funny thing I believe when teddy Roosevelt was president he cleaned up a-lot of the corruption but this was at the beginning of the 20th century.
