  • Pullman Town Analysis

    Imagine a beautiful town full of churches, libraries, theaters and other great amenities. This picture perfect advertisement of Pullman Town was far from the truth, and was actually the definition of an un-American lifestyle. Pullman Town, was created by George Pullman and was a “gift” to his workers to give them a better lifestyle than what they could have provided for themselves. However what is unknown is that Pullman benefited the most from this town, generating a 6% yearly profit on the rents he charged his residents. Not only that, but he also forced and pressured his workers to live in Pullman, firing those who decided not to live there.
