Answers
Jurgis is a young, healthy man who grew up on a working farm and is not afraid of hard work. Due to political unrest in his country, Jurgis and his family decide to move to America where they have heard that they can make a lot more money. They choose the packing houses of Chicago because a friend told them it was a good place to work. This seems to be true when most of the adults find jobs quickly.
