As Jurgis progresses throughout the book, he undertook the task to assault Phil Connor, who Ona slept with to receive money to provide for the family. Unfortunately, Jurgis went to jail and surrounded by these fugitives, he recognized “They were swindlers and thieves of pennies and dimes, and they had been trapped and put out of the way by the swindlers and thieves of millions of dollars,” (Sinclair 172-3). What Sinclair states above, reveals bourgeoisies to engage in corruption to exploit the proletariats and embezzle the money. Thus, the rise of socialism

This generated anxiety when Luddites violently threatened to burn down factories. The threat of the Luddites violently burning down business owners factories provoked stress and massive tension between the two groups.
