1) What qualities did Sinclair believe a person must have to succeed in Packingtown?
2)According to the passage, what is the plant owner's main goal.
3) What does Sinclair mean when he says, "...there was no place in it where a man counted for anything against a dollar....?"

When it was published, The Jungle was so shocking that it launched a government investigation of the meatpacking industry.  The investigation eventually led to the establishment of laws regulating the industry.  Using the internet, research an area that our government regulates now (meat packing, environment, pharmaceuticals) and report how this is enforced today.
