Many men became stressed and angry and they rebelled against life in the relief camps which gave them no hope for the future. Overtime, conditions in these reliefs got worse and worse. It was overcrowded and not a pleasant place to live in. In April 1935, 1500 men from the British Columbia relief camps went on strike and gathered together in the city of Vancouver.
The Red Scare started right after the civil war was over. There had been many riots to accrue during the time of the red scare. In the term the red scare had been a form of lose to many successful people. It took at huge toll on the government as they tried to stop and contain the many job losses, but as the time went by people start to riot in the streets because the of the cuts from their jobs had really affected them. People were losing their lives and the government did all they could to try and stop it.
There were significant divisions between the political and industrial wing of the labour movement after the government refused to introduce a price referendum. The industrial wing, according to Maclean, was furious, viewing the government’s actions as a “capitulation to business and the interests of the economic class”. But more practically, Scott argues that it cannot be overlooked that “men and women were feeling the pinch” of the poor economic conditions the war brought. The economy contracted 10% in the first year of war, unemployment rose, and, while the average weekly wage rose 12% for men and 8% for women, this never kept pace with the rate of inflation. Geoffrey Blainey writes these poor conditions caused the “trade unions to complain that workers were the economic victims of war”, with growing tensions seeing 2405 industrial disputes between 1914 – 1919, 1.7 million days lost to industrial action and strikes, and rowdy women-led cost of living strikes in Melbourne in 1917.
This loss of population made it hard to find laborers and soldiers for war. This caused the empire to pay Germanic soldiers to fight for them. The need to pay for troops created a large debt for the Romans. Another reason that led to the decline of the Roman Empire was their water source coming in through lead pipes. Many people believed this poisoned the Romans which also led to low population.
This positive outlook was not kept for long and as the death rate piled up and nations were not able to feed their people, women growing accustomed to, ¨empty hands and still emptier stomachs,¨(Document 6). By 1916 the outlook had changed and many people did not glorify war but saw it as the devastating event it truly was. ¨Gone was the euphoria. Gone the Patriotic noise in the streets,¨ (Document 7), writes a German socialist Rosa Luxemburg who describes his town in which there was ¨misery and despair everywhere,¨ (Document 7). By 1916 the war had become unpopular and many were ready to be out of it
During the 1929 - 1939 many people were in debt and a lot of jobs were lost. The Great Depression was bad it affected the whole world, the hoover dam was created and the welfare system was also a result of the Depression. The Great depression had alot of effects on people and the world. The trading routes with other countries to America stopped.
In the document Diary of Dr. Waldo (Document C) it shows how bad the conditions were for the soldiers. The soldiers looked like they were not ready to fight. They looked like they were not prepared to fight like other soldiers. In the document Committee of Congress at Valley Forge
People were living off what they government gave them which wasn 't much. Herbert Hoover was the President at that time and his response to what was happening wasn 't so good. He believed that the economy goes through a cycle and that the government should let things run their course and eventually things would improve. As result of this many people thought that he wasn 't doing anything to help the country pass through the great depression, but on his last year as president he started to get more involved and try to help those who were suffering. He established programs and lows such as the Reconstruction
In need of help, the farmers sought aid from the government, which seemed to be ignored, eventually leading to intense frustration and erupting in violence. A group of farmers in Massachusetts lead by Daniel Shays, growing to nearly 2,500, rallied to demand change, but ultimately ended with the violent clash between the group and the state militia (Shea, Green, Smith 52). Shay’s Rebellion highlighted the gaping flaws of the Articles and in the months following, lead to a meeting to revise the Articles, known as the Constitutional Convention. “In late May 1787, some 55 delegates from every state except Rhode Island came together at the Pennsylvania State House in Philadelphia for the purpose of proposing changes to the Articles of Confederation. Congress … did not expect that the Articles
World War Two was an extremely harsh and brutal for everyone involved. As many as fifty to eighty million people lost their lives in this time period, for the simple reason that they wanted others to be happy, healthy, and free; or more commonly, they were discriminated against for things they could not control. Soon after the war started, America swooped in with the intent and purpose to distribute equality, freedom, and justice throughout the world where it was not currently readily available (due to the repercussions and new worldviews caused by the war.) At least, that’s what most people think. Much like the cruel and horrific ongoings of what happened in Jewish Concentration Camps created for the Christians, Jews, Homosexuals, and their supporters; America had practiced similar ideals and treatment towards the Native Americans in our country long before this time.
“Subsequent diplomatic failures to resolve the Maine matter, coupled with United States indignation over Spain’s brutal suppression of the Cuban rebellion and continued losses to American investment, led to the outbreak of the Spanish-American War in April 1898” (History 1). They were justified in doing this because many people were killed, it caused problems not just with them, but with families and it affected the country. “…killing 260 of the fewer than 400 American crew members aboard” (History 1). This took away opportunity for 260
The Great Depression In Canada and The United States of America The Great Depression is one of the worst recessions in all of history. After the war, many troops returned home looking for a place to work. Not many job offerings are available at the time, leaving families with no income. On ‘Black Tuesday’, October 29th, 1929, the stock markets completely crashed.
Lack of freedom, war and poor quality of life are few of the many factors that contributed to the Japanese immigration to Canada. For example, women were not allowed to work outside of the home and their their social freedoms, which included the right to vote and play a positive role in the society, were denied. People were also forced to leave their homeland because of the southern war in 1877, which resulted in the death of thousands of innocent civilians. The war also had negative social and financial impacts. For example, they didn’t have enough jobs, people killed each other for food and framers even lost their land that they had been working on for years.
