The story underscores the mindset of society during a time where machines were threatening to take over jobs(Rabinbach pg 132). It was a time in which people could quickly rise to the top in management positions but they would go out on a limb and get themselves in above their heads financially. It did not take long to discover that jobs could be lost at the management level as people scrambled in upward motions to survive the industrial attrition aspect of society. Carrie was a woman caught without skills, or a way to survive and she did what millions of women in her era did(Smith pg 78). She turned to men to take care of her.
