Thankfully, Teddy Roosevelt took incentive to make things better. Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point Principles and Application Guidelines. These are things they should have considered because I think if they did consider the health of the people it would have been a unanimous decision. One thing that also comes to mind is conditions in other countries. Roosevelt conducted two separate investigations.
Teddy Roosevelt discovered the Meat Inspection Act by reading the novel called The Jungle that was written by Upton Sinclair in the ealry 1900's. It was interesting to learn that one book alone could call for so much chaos, but I guess these days we have Harry Potter and Twilight that seem to cause the same pandemonium in America. Since we are a democracy, an outsider would never guess the type of thing happens, but sadly it frequently does. The reality is they got something done that gave America a step forward in a new age of reform. Although this is just my opinion, it looks to me as if Wadsworth and Lorimer are the very image of those people that think only of the progress of the corporation and completely ignore the rights of the worker. I would have fought for harder laws, but then again a quick fix was needed.
Because of my outlandish thinking, I assumed that the chapter would be about Sinclair and Roosevelt and how together they defeated the looming and dangerous meatpacking industry and saved 20th century America. The vile conditions Sinclair reported damaged T. This goes on to what you said later about symbolism. Roosevelt responded with the Meat Inspection Act of 1906. The fact that Neill and Reynolds found even worse conditions that were described in Sinclair's novel absolutely repulsed my thoughts.
I had never thought of it this way, but I agree. Had it not been for him the mean companies may have gotten away with this for quite some time. In 1906, Roosevelt passed his bill to reform the meat industry. The meat packers were successful, but Roosevelt eventually passed a bill that prevented the packers from using dyes and adulterants, which contained chemicals that would be potentially harmful to their consumers, and allotted time for inspection of the meat packing mills at all hours of the day. While reading this selection, it surprised me what was going into the vats besides just meat.
The description of not only the working conditions, but also the description of the meat in general is revolting in my opinion. Unfortunately, the substitution bill passed through the Agriculture Committee. This book allows the reader to learn more than they ordinarily know because textbooks merely highlight an event rather than magnifying the individual components that caused it to happen. Even though these story-like accounts are true and accurate, the main factors in these complex political situations are twisted with symbols to transmit them in an almost surreal fashion. I am just glad that I live in the period where inspections are required. One of the most recognizable politicians in the business is Teddy Roosevelt because he was often caricatured with his big stick. Or was it to lax? If product is covered by a standard of identity and meets the established standard, then pre-market approval is not necessary.
In all plants, sanitation, net weight and accurate labeling including nutrition information regulations are enforced. The establishment number of the official exotic animal establishment where the product is prepared shall be used in lieu thereof. You guessed it, that hard working fellow with a wife and three kids to support just got his wages cut in half. The President needed to create a solution that would placate the outraged citizens. This is one of the reasons why their life expectancy is so much shorter than those of people in American society.
We have President Roosevelt to thank for our safe food and healthy working conditions. Roosevelt wanted inspections of the meat to happen before and after slaughter. When I first started this chapter, I was blown away at the conditions of the meat packing industry. Today, however, a wide variety of meat and poultry products are on the market. Last, I too appreciated how Republicans and Democrats came together to fight for sanitary food despite their different beliefs about other issues. The fact that Wadsworth and Lorimer's substitution bill was even tossed up for further concideration makes me wonder if that kind of thing still happens in the government today. I mean it was awful in almost any business back then.
I believe this is one of the many things that made him a great leader. Reading this chapter makes me very thankful for a diligent person like Teddy Roosevelt. This proves to show how strong willed of a person Teddy was, and how he was going to get his way. People cannot understand all the complex details behind a situation. The cartoons and symbols actually impacted political involvements such as presidential elections.
