That’s why this era was known as gilded which implicated the outer growth on the price of corruption, poverty, and mistreatment of the workers.

America went through a really tough time during this age as there were so many amendments being done. The industrial revolution was a reason behind the era of gilded age as America and some part of Europe switched from agriculture to industrialization. This switch resulted in millions of farmers, workers and immigrants influenced towards cities. However, the cities weren’t ready for such an inclination in the rate of the population which resulted in the death of folks due to diseases which were preventable.

In such an era, the tycoons got a monopoly and they started association busting, misrepresentation, terrorizing, viciousness and their broad political associations with gain leeway over any contenders. Looter noblemen were persevering in their endeavors to accumulate riches while abusing specialists and overlooking standard business rules even the federal courts got corrupt and blend their support with and the reason being very few court cases won against monopolies and trusts during the Gilded Age.
