The Jungle a novel by Upton Sinclair contained many unique characters which were used as color for this story The character of Jurgis Rudkis was the strong central character that the author developed as the cornerstone of this novel The story was based on the life Rudkis led in the town of Packington The remaining characters in the story merely made appearances and aided in the tale of Jurgiss experiences Mr Rudkis originally from Lithuania was a strong overpowering person His initial appearance was during his wedding day in Packington The celebration was delayed because of his familys desire to provide Jurgis and his bride with a wedding feast This problem was happily solved and he eventually worked at various positions in the town Jurgis someone who believes in the value of hard work was nave in thinking that anything can be accomplished through the application of it Jurgis was forced to send his family to work in order to survive He was horrified to discover how the meat packers where he worked took advantage of their employees The workers at the plant had no benefits worked long hours and were paid poor wages Jurgis decided to join a Union and took a stand on the issues with some other family members For the first time in his life he saw the corruption of a town and its employers His solution to most problems I will work harder no longer sustained him He had believed hard work could conquer all but found that it could not beat the corruption that spread like a cancer in this town Jurgis soon becomes injured at the plant and bed-ridden Ironically this was also a special time for him He finally got to know his son and spent quality time with him It was also a time of depression for Jurgis He deteriorated and became a wreck of his old self Eventually he returned for work
