why did the United Fruit company take power?- i say they took power by cheap labor, climaxes with a CIA-organized government coup,and their bananas.

How did the United Fruit company control the government?-- they began to acquire land in Latin America for banana plantations, they snatched up around 42 percent of farmland in Guatemala. They gave the exclusive right to transport mail, and clinched a stranglehold on all of transportation and communication systems

Why would Guatemalans hate United Fruit Company? -The workers didnt get paid enough money, provided minimal benefits, and labored grueling hours.
