What are some books, stories, or poems like Upton Sinclair's The Jungle

I'd love to read more works like The Jungle, and know more about its contexts. Ideally, but not necessarily, I'd like to read things that are similar, but not American, to get some perspective. This is partly for my own pleasure, so I'm interested in connections that are a bit stretched as well as obviously similar texts. Also, I'd like to teach Sinclair's book in a first-year university English class eventually, and so texts that might be interesting points of comparison would be very useful. Thanks!
Bonus points for Canadian content in particular!
