Previously, Japan was at war with a lot of countries that the U.S. did trade with, this made Japan a military target. Before the attack on Pearl Harbor, the U.S. wasn't planning on being in the war.

Many farmers went off to fight in the war, leaving farming jobs open for P.O.W'S or Prisoners of War that were captured by the U.S. and were put to work on farms.
