John D. Rockefeller treated his workers pretty well. He paid higher than market wages, citing that it would end up slashing costs in the long run. He was a fair employer, and commonly rewarded his employees with large bonuses and lengthy vacations.

He is NOT the man portrayed by socialists like Roosevelt and supporters of the Sherman Act.
