The African American are less likely to make it through school system, this have resulted in the poor educational system. The educational system is just becoming ruined and eventually it would categorize everyone as underclass. This is the huge reason why African American male make up most of the prison and absent to their families. “In 1950, 17 percent of African American children lived in a home with their mothers and not their fathers. By 2010 that have increased to 50 percent.”
Women in the nineteenth century lived in an age characterized by gender inequality. Throughout history the treatment to women has been unfairly. Back in times women were in charge of the house and taking care of the children. They did not have any job to paid and support themselves, only the men’s used to work. Women had no voice, they had to deal with every mistreated or unhappiness in a relationship.
Most of the men that enlisted in WW1 belonged to the working class of Australian society. This often meant that the wives of the men were left at home to look after the children without financial support of their husband who had always provided a families primary source of income. In the aftermath of WW1, in a rebuilding phase, many fields were destroyed, building were dismantled causing an increase in food prices and cost of living. Manufacturers had to rebuild and retool to produce goods.

African Americans suffer the most and it started before the depression. The strain became intense they were experiencing the economy at their lowest, business was becoming slower.
The experience that the majority of urban and rural Americans shared together during the depression was a flat out lack of income. The differences were very few, but in the cities, the depression was more prominently visible because of a higher percentage of the population (Schultz 2014). Besides the lack of income and employment, most Americans underwent periods of time being extremely hungry. In the cities, people spent hours waiting in breadlines and were losing their homes to only end up living on the streets in communities referred to as "Hoovervilles" nicknamed after the president (Schultz 2014). In the country, families suffered because of unusual droughts of the 1930 's that caused crops to fail miserably meant the already indebted farmers commonly lost their properties.
The percentage of Americans that were losing jobs was outrageous “25 percent of all workers and 37 percent of all nonfarm workers were completely out of work. ”(Great Depression) and that only increased. The people moved and were kicked out of their lands feed to find work elsewhere but work was scarce and was no where to be found. The african americans also had a harder time finding work as the whites were given unfair priority. Their was a substantial gap between the rich and the poor and the poor was the lowest percentage of people in the Americas.
Since people believe that women have always been responsible for work at home and in the labour force, they have always been paid less, both when their jobs are not the same as men, and when the work is exactly the same. According to the statistics by Historica Canada (), women earned 52.8% of what men earned in 1911, 58% in 1971 and 66% in 1996. This type of discrimination is commonly seen in India, however in India it is difficult for women to get occupations in certain main cities due to cultural and religious issues according to the article by Chatterjee
People are overcrowded in these households and only earn social security, veteran or disability’s income. The reservations do not have industrial employers and most of the employers include federal and tribal governments. The condition has resulted to high level of unemployment, which does not only affect individuals but the entire society. The employment problems are driving many Native American families into a state of poverty which has forced some to become homeless. Housing is another factor causing poverty in the Native American Reservations.
Once they arrived they need a place to stay, but since the man did not have much money they had to live in tenements. The tenements were awful. As many as twelve families would live together in a single floor. They were often surrounded by trash which smell was almost unbearable. They were also near to the factories where many worked at. In these factories, the working conditions were just horrible.
The Industrial Revolution in the 1900s was a time of substantial transformation throughout society. Not only did countries become greatly dependent upon one another, but it has also influenced people’s lifestyles and the global economy. The effects of this are still relevant today. Of course this has brought many benefits, but resulting factors such as urbanization and the hunger for industrial and global economic growth has led to many problems, not the least of which is climate change.
“Typically, Tribal and Federal governments are the largest employers on the reservations. Many households are overcrowded and earn only social security, disability or veteran 's income” (Aid). The lack of jobs and economic opportunity mean that, depending on the reservation, a lot of adults on reservations are unemployed. “Among American Indians who are employed, many are earning below poverty wages. The overall percentage of American Indians living below the federal poverty line is 28.2%.
Because of the little money the farmers were making many were forced to leave and find work elsewhere. One-fourth of the people who lived in the Dust Bowl left the region. Many of them had skills beyond farming, and when they didn’t find work they suffered extreme poverty.(UXL Encyclopedia of Weather and Natural Disasters. Ed. Amy Hackney Blackwell and Elizabeth Manor.)(p223-225).
During the period of great depression business trade that went on between countries became stifled. Many farm produced was reduced and industry jobs were slowed down, especially the farm produced. Many farmers could not produce because of falling farm prices, less consumption and the continuous laying off of workers all affected the farmers so much that there was decrease in exports. Coupled with the effect of the post-world war 1, much of the thriving of 1920s was a recurrent sequence of debt for the American farmer, reducing from farm prices and the necessity to purchase expensive machinery. Thus, the rest of the nation’s felt and saw it as a severe drop and the United States loss much of his external
Not enough to supports their family and themselves, many left the city to become a farmer. (Discussed in Video Lecture 05.01). As discussed by Dr. Carrigan in lecture 05-1, there were unpredictable wage drop. “Between 1873 and 1879, the wages of unskilled laborers dropped from $1.81 per day to $1.29 per day.” Professor Carrigan also discussed that, “United States
