support my eight kids and wife and he continued to cut wages. I do not feel like i was treated fairly. Chantel- He may try to say that he started his first business but he had to borrow from his parents and he never paid them back, along with buying business like the railroad company and did not give credit to the original finder. Also, they may say that his money gave him power but he was very greedy, he never generously donated to charities. He only spent money to make vanderbilt university and yes it may give you education but he just wanted to have a legacy. Also, evidence claims he gave his son william vanderbilt 95,000,000 and the rest of his money to his children.Vanderbilt also never fully earned all the money he had by himself. He only earned that money from buying other companies. Notes: is known for working his employs for long hours and short pay. Is greedy in his work life. Close minded. Gave 95 million to his son and only 500,000 to his other kids. Donated 1 million to a university in tennessee. Bought out most companies that were his competitions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
