Best Answer

The Homestead Act took place at Carnegie's homestead steel plant. The union workers of this plant were protesting because they had received a wage cut. Carnegie was usually kind to the union workers and never forced them to stop protesting. However, he was vacationing in Scotland on that fateful day in 1892. So the results of the strike were fatal. The Homestead Act ruined Andrew Carnegie's reputation of being a fair employer.
