Upton Sinclair was a well-known muckraker who spent several months investigating the working conditions of the Chicago, Illinois, meatpacking industry. His findings became the basis of his 1906 serialized novel The Jungle.

This book gave a fictionalized account of the lives of meatpacking workers with blunt descriptions of the unsanitary and often dangerous conditions that they faced. The public outcry that followed contributed to the passage of two new federal laws which helped ensure sanitary conditions in meatpacking and other food industries.

Do you think that muckrakers like Sinclair are still needed today? Your answer should be at least 1 paragraph
