  Carnegie the “Robber Baron”
• “He saw himself as a hero of working
  people, yet he crushed their unions. The
  richest man in the world, he railed against
  privilege. A generous philanthropist, he
  slashed the wages of the workers who
  made him rich.”

CARNEGIE’S JOBS AS A BOY
                                    • “At fifteen he took a job
                                      as a messenger boy for a
                                      telegraph company. It
                                      was heaven compared to
                                      his job down in the dark
                                      cellar of the steam engine
                                      room. In his next job, at
                                      seventeen, he became a
                                      telegrapher, making good
                                      money, $25 per month.”
