After World War II, American society changed dramatically. One change was the GI Bill. This bill provided for veterans after the war. The benefits to this bill was low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, cash payments for college, and one year of unemployment compensation. Another change was the population shift. Many people in the United States started to move to sunbelt states, which describes sunny areas from the southern atlantic coast to California.
