People were forced to be stingy to survive, and after the depression was over they squandered their money on luxuries and necessities alike. The government also established safety nets for the people such as social security, and food stamps these are still lasting effects of the Great Depression till this
A small amount of Polish people came to the United States before the American Civil War, but most came afterwards (Pula, 1995, p. 1). They immigrated to America due to the occupation of foreign powers that sought after the destruction of the Polish language, tradition and culture (Pula, 1995, p. 1). The Polish was perceived as appalling due to the language and customs that they followed while living in the societies of Prussia, Russia and Austria which caused them to move to the United States. Moreover, the Polish people living in Poland along the Prussia line suffered from the same treatment along with confiscation of the properties that they owned (Lucille, 1951, p. 87). Also, once the Polish peasants were no longer enslaved under the higher classes, they knew it was beneficial to follow the capitalist economic changes.
According to Melissa Hoebee, she said, ”I chose Millersville University for several reasons. It had a strong education program, it was close to home, and my brother also went there (so I had the comfort of knowing people before I attended college there)”.

another self-strategy was the alliance exchange making farmers focus on a central purchasing house. all these actions failed because farmers were too poor or in debt due to prior sales. the system was poorly capitalized, prices were too high for farmers, they ended up being victims to business causing the uprising of boycotts. the subtreasary plan succeed this plan helped farmers by giving them loans in order to grow and sell crops. The back and forth communication and strategies not only lead the famers to a political path but it also began the start of the populist party.
The whole purpose of Moldaw story was to share the memories she has of her father and show how much of an impact he had on her and her son’s. This story can appeal to almost anyone it is a raw nonfiction short story that anyone could relate to. This is the kind of writers that Biostories strives to attract, writers who can write creatively about something or someone that is not significant to the rest of the world but significant to them personally. Moldaw organized her story in chronological order of her father’s experiences and tells the whole story in first person to involve the reader further into the story. Biostories wants their audience to connect to these short stories and wants readers to feel as if this person is a friend and is inviting you in to a personal time in their lives.
This caused many conflicts between Ruth and her twelve children because they wanted to go against the restrictions given to them by society. I enjoy this conflict in the story because it shows the cold hard truth about what these kinds of families had to deal with instead of appropriating the story and pretending The Black Power movements didn’t happen. The story in Ruth’s perspective is set in Poland, where she was born in 1921, and later changes to Suffolk, Virginia, where her father worked as a rabbi. Ruth’s character was formed when she lived in the south in the 20’s and 30’s. Ruth also experienced hardships like her children because immigrants, especially Jews, were not very easily accepted.
Pogrebin also stated “I mean Jews and Blacks,/that’s manageable,/we’re near,/we’re still near enough to each other to reach(Smith 50)!” The Jewish and Black communities know what each of communities are going through they’ve both lost people, and they know what it feels like to be chastised by society because they’re”different” from other people in society. These two communities have suffered great loses in time and could relate to one another, but the media has divided them into two groups who should have joined them together. “In America, identity is always being negotiated”; people don’t know what true identity is or how to look at a person 's identity. Identity is how a person carries one’s self and how that person displays their characteristics and actions. Identity in America is seen as race and stereotypes and things people see on the news and media.
Slavery has greatly affected and continues to affect Blacks in America in the form of poverty. The reparations should be paid to the Black community as a group rather than individuals. Although not all Americans have descendants that participated in slavery, it is part of our collective history as a nation. Although slavery was over a hundred years ago, the effects of slavery continue to affect the Black community and has prevented a majority of them from succeeding economically. The reparations would help contribute to healing of racial tensions and would allow the United States to move forward from the past.
Economic involvements had a bigger impact on the great depression.The great depression was a time of need for the Americans. Due to the supplies and accessories shipped out during the war, America was low on supplies, money and control, and president Herbert Hoover did very little in an attempt to overcome this problem. Men and women were driven into what were called Hoovervilles, which was a collection of teepee huts gathered together to make a community. Just as the people thought they had hit rock bottom, a switch of presidents helped make all the difference. president Franklin D Roosevelt passed law after law in order to help America gain back its economic worth.
They offer a replacement to the regular school lunches, and some kids find themselves skipping out on the school provided lunch options altogether (“Junk Food in Schools”). The USDA places some restrictions on competitive foods, requiring them to “contain at least five percent of the recommended daily allowance of a number of specific nutrients, including protein and certain vitamins” (“Junk Food in Schools”). These restrictions seem to be unpopular because they limit some schools from selling chewing gum or breath mints (because they lack nutrients), but they can sell candy and french fries (“Junk Food in Schools”). This system seems quite unkempt and
The Progressive Era had mainly focused on improving social and economic issues such as poverty, violence, greed, class structure, monopolies and trusts, corruption and etc. I, Jane Addams, am a middle class woman and a progressive worker who has been one of the many who have faced constant unethical social conditions that occurs along the urban streets following rapid industrialization in America. I have witnessed that the influx of immigrants who’ve migrated to America have struggled in engaging in the numerous opportunities America has to offer; due to them lacking an education and knowledge in various areas. I propose that a solution to this problem would be establishing settlement houses to where I suggest it would assist and provide social and educational services to predominantly immigrant residents to who subside in crowded streets of America. One of my closest friends, Ellen Gates Starr, and I have pondered on the idea of naming one of the many settlement houses to be named the “Hull House” where it would be located in Chicago and also provide such services to those in nearby communities and neighborhoods as well.
In the article “Rethinking the Great Depression,” by Gene Smiley, the author expresses his views on some points that lead to the great depression. The article talks about the crash of the market and everything associated with it. Further, he points out why the actual depression lasted longer than it should have in his opinion. The author also speaks about why the government failed the people, and why they had hard times due to the limited money available to them to work for. The article also places most of the blame on the government itself for the lack of money and help to the people during this time.
