WWII caused a boom in the economy, pushing America back on its feet. By: Annie Lester, Sam Sasin, And Garrett Kalenick The great depression affected the middle-class and low-class people of North America.
According to eyewitnesstohistory.com, "Many rich people felt no impact at all, , and were oblivious to the suffering of others. Up to forty percent of the country never faced real hardship during those years. "
At the start of World War II, the poor became a little richer, and the rich became even richer. The Great Depression was in most industrialized areas of the world. Such as: -North America -Europe (The USA was effected the worst.) The Great Depression ended when a great amount of spending for WWII began. People needed supplies for the war, so began spending lots of money for ammunition, weapons, and soldier necessities. The Great Depression ended because of the bombings of Pearl harbor. Those bombings sent America back into business. With needs for materials for the war such as: weapons, tanks, warships, air crafts, etc. The need gave jobs to over 17 million people, and sent over 12 million overseas. This shot America right out of the depression. The Great Depression was a horrible time for middle class Americans. 1 in 5 Americans could not find work. International trade was depleted, big industries were the main job source. Every American tried to make a dollar or two anywhere they could. Kids up to the age of 4 and up were working in factories, mines, and anywhere they could. Everything from food to houses jumped in prices all around the country.
