The Great Depression, the worst economic downturn in the history of the industrialized world was at its lowest point in 1933, the beginning of the book. Over 15 million Americans were unemployed, and half of the country's banks had failed, malnutrition was a big problem for children due to their parents not being able to afford food for them, and many families were evicted from the houses or lands that they lived on. During this period, most African Americans worked on farms that were owned by white landowners and lived in rural areas. While life before the Great Depression was already arduous for African Americans, their living conditions worsened due to the fact that the farmers they worked for lost their land. As previously mentioned, food prices had deflated causing farmers to not be able to make a profit off of their land.

According to White House’s Council of Economic Advisers, the percentage of people who are middle class has fallen from 50 percent to 42 percent. On the contrary, a 2012 report by the Congressional Research Service reveals that the wealthiest 10 percent of households went from controlling 67 percent of the country’s wealth in 1989 to almost 75 percent in 2010. Moreover, this uneven distribution of wealth has contributed enormously to increased poverty and deprivation in the US.

Workers freedom during the Gilded Age was only applicable to select group of skilled workers and the interest of farmers were neglected in favor of industrialization. Working conditions for most workers were unsafe and wage prices were low. According to GML, many industrial workers labored sixty-hour weeks with no pensions, compensation for injuries.

Italians were slow to take part in the American political process and the political unification of Italy in 1879 did not bring better lives to the majority of Italians, who began to emigrate in large numbers to, other than the United States, Brazil and Argentina.

Simple jobs like nurses or electricians can’t be filled because no one has knowledge of those subject, which causes poor health care and infrastructure in the country. The human development index proves that countries where children with few years of education are overall less developed. South Korea’s recent transformations shows how important a strong education system truly is.

Every single year, thousands die due to unavailable health care. In fact, “lack of health insurance is associated with as many as 44,789 deaths per year” (Wilper, McCormick, Lasser, Woolhandler 1). This statistic means up to a 40% extra risk of death for those who don’t have health care. Not only are people not getting the health care they need, but they are also dying at a much younger age due to this fact. For example, a study found that “13,000 deaths occur each year just in the 55-64-year-old age group due to lack of health insurance coverage.” (Wilper, McCormick, Lasser, Woolhandler 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.

Because a lot of natives fail to get an education they still suffer economically. In particular, their employment rates are far below those of whites. “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).
