Muckraking influenced American society during the Progressive Era in many different ways. They wrote articles and constant complaining how some people in the society did some bad things. one of the example is the meat packaging that Upton Sinclair published to the society. That the place they used to do the meat packaging it was not clean at all and sometimes you wold find some dead rat on them and more like that.
