Transcript: US leaders during the decade THANK YOU! "Our language is the reflection of ourselves . A language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers" A major invention we still use today is colored T.V "Humanely Done" In this event operation wetback was created and used in 1954. Dwight Eisenhower launched it to remove thousands of undocumented workers. Mostly mexican nationals. 4,800 people were arrested on the first day. By the end of the day 1.3 million were deported. This included abuse of children and separating families. The term "Wetback" was applied to Mexicans who swam across Rio Grande River. That is today called "Ethnic Slur". This deportation lasted only a couple of months sending now 2.1 million Mexicans.

SIDE B Operation wetback is a very serious situation and it still effects us today.Operation wetback is a horrible idea of getting rid of mexicans, Mexicans are human beings trying to make a living for there family and do good by there kids. This event can separate family's and be a horrible experience . Donald Trump wants to keep this system going. Operation Wetback could be used less violently and more fairly but trump decides not to, This can have negative affects in our future. Harry Truman-was the 33rd president of the United States an american politician of the democratic party.1945-1953 Joseph Stalin- The leader of the Soviet Union from the mid 1920's -1953 he was basically the dictator of the state. "Operation Wetback" Donald Trump is planning on reviving Operation Wetback. Immigration today has increased and trump is planning to build a wall and remove immigrants "humanley done" Trump said in his interview that "force them because we give them a fortune, Mexico makes a fortune because of us. A wall is a tiny little peanut compared to that. I would do something very severe unless they contributed or gave us the money to build the wall." Enrique Pena Nieto responded in saying trump is ignorant and he will not pay him to hurt his people unfairly. "mexicans in the U.S. work with passion,they do their jobs well, Sanchez said. Since 2008 Our federal government still hasnt made an agreement on immigration today. 1950s background "Operation Wetback" Operation Wetback was launched in the response of the Bracero program.Which allowed millions of mexicans work in the U.S on short term labors. On August 4, 1942 the united states concluded a temporary agreement for the use of mexican agricultural labor. Another response would be "successful Unionization"in 1965 the National Farm Workers Association.Headed by Cesar Chavez dedicated his life to improving treatment,pay, and working conditions. This Association had a first against grape growers in California. Chavez battle with the grape growers improved and labor conditions would last for years.

Transcript: the three c's of the 1950s Presented by Whitney for COMPANY Conformity Conformity WHat was conformity in the 1950s? Conformity- is society's standard on how people were supposed to be, no one acts a different way, nobody is a leader, and everyone will follow society’s rules on how they play their part in life. In general, conformity is the process of everyone doing the same thing as what everyone else is doing. Example: Living in the suburbs Gender roles Buying material things Conformity in business Conformity in business How did business feel about conformity? companies did not want any creative minded people at their jobs they just wanted workers who did what they were told, so conformity was just what they wanted; people who followed others without a complaint. PERSONALITY TEST PERSONALITY TEST To make sure that people would beable to fit in with others that they are working with, companies would give personality tests to place those with similar personlities together . Relationships Relationships Conformity has affected relationships, because people only want to get know those who have the same interest of theirs, only because they have only been around people who have the same personality as theirs. In addition, some people began to like some things that everyone like, but truly they do not like the same thing. And end up not being true to themselves just to fit in. They start forming relationships with people they do not like. In addition, for those who do stay true themselves and follow the rules of conformity, people stay away from for them, because they are not like everyone else. Car- Centrism Car- Centrism In the 1950s, cars became very popular and important to everyday life and were very expensive, but they were easy to pay for and concerning those who live in the suburbs the demand for a car increase. This also caused a need for more roads, leading to the creation of the highway system. In the end with so many cars on the road the beginning of problems occurred. Noise- With cars always on the road they created tons of noise distrubing the peace of the environment around them. Air pollution- was becoming more commen because cars created exhaust from burning gas. Car accidents- with more new drivers on the roads, car accidents became frequent, and claimed many lifes each year. The problems The problems People needed a way to travel to the towns and cities that where far away to where they live, this leads to the creation of the highway system; which is a series of interstates roads that are connect together that join 48 states together. Because of this people now could go anywhere they wanted or needed to go. HIghway system HIghway system Because of the creation of the highway system, there was a new way of transportation for companies; which was long haul trucking. Were trucks could carry supplies for companies from using the highways. In addition, restaurants could be built along the highways so people could eat when they became hungry and gas stations could be built so people can fuel-up while they are on the road. Moreover, all these places created jobs for the American people and more money for American companies. New jobs and oportunities New jobs and oportunities The suburbs where build in rural areas away from cities and towns which had all the mandatory things to live or provide for their lives. Therefore, cars became necessary to get to towns or cities. Moreover, with extreme propaganda and easy credit terms for cars, it made it easier for people to want and buy cars. Suburbans and easy payment Suburbans and easy payment Example of propaganda Example of propaganda Consumerism Consumerism When WWII ended America's economy florish because of all the money we made from the war. During this time 60 percent of americans were in the middle class, and with a more than enough money that americans could uses their money to buy any thing they wanted. During this time period people were promoted to buy many things so they could follow the america dream of having tons of material things. The things that people started buying were things that could make house life easy for the women like washing machines, dryers, freezers, dishwashers, etc. Also for people bought televisions, tape recorders, and new record players for their entertainment. For the outside of their homes, people could buy grills, swimming pools, and lawn decorations. the products to get the products to get Because of the creation of credit; buy now, pay later, consumers could buy a large amount of stuff and pay on an installment plan. Installment plans are when a person pays all their fees in a fixed time period. The only problem with this was that consumers were getting so many things to point they could not pay back the money and end up in debt. Then they became so busy with paying their debt, they were not able to save up money for their future. How did you pay? Credit of course! How did you pay? Credit of course! Promoting a product
