Under the WPB:
factories ran 24 hours a day
unemployment rates fell from 25% to 1%
agricultural production soared
bans were created to conserve items for the troops
money was raised through the sale of war bonds
In 1942- The WPB began a system of "rationing"- having the American people
conserve certain items at home that were needed for war.
Items rationed:
-rubber * the Dutch East Indies were taken over by Japan, which produced 95% of our rubber
