During the Great Depression, many people were desperate for a job, food, shelter, and security, all of which are standards expected in the modern world. However, in the midst of an economic crisis, the people who had stability despised those who could not achieve a steady way of life. Farmers who hoarded the food that could keep people alive would not help those in need. By selfishly withholding aid, the farmers failed humanity in a way, “that topples all our success,” showing that what they did was not right (Steinbeck 349). When faced with the injustice of people being too poor to afford what they need to survive, those who had resources were morally obligated to help feed those

The Industrial Revolution brought down the prices of crops produced by farmers, this meant that farmers were not making enough money to pay off their debts. This increasing problem was slowly digging farmers into a hole with what seemed to be no escape. To add on to their everlasting money problems, middlemen and railroad companies were price gouging the farmers. This meant, the companies were asking farmers to pay prices which had been far higher than the actual value of the products needed for the farmers to raise crops. Companies did this, because they knew that farmers could not buy their goods from other businesses due to the fact that there were not any others in sight.
The soil and fertility of the land was different than what they had experienced in their homeland and therefore they struggled to find ways in which to make and grow food for themselves. They came during a terrible winter when it was extremely difficult to find anything from the land they could eat. In William Bradford’s “Of Plymouth Plantation,” it demonstrates how new food affected the lives of the colonists such as “digging up, found in them divers fair Indian baskets filled with corn, and some in ears, fair and good, of divers colours, which seemed to them a very goodly sight having never seen any such before”(11). Finding and exploring new food to eat affected the colonist because they now had to adapt and change their diet to fit the products that they could now harvest in their new home. They had to learn how to plant these crops and how to help them grow and harvest them.
The pueblo’s chief wouldn’t let John participate in their traditions, he says “‘But they wouldn 't let me. They disliked me for my complexion. It 's always been like that. Always.’ Tears stood in the young man 's eyes; he was ashamed and turned away” (Huxley 117).
Since government does not support citizens, some of them have to migrate to the U.S to make more money due to debt piling up. Additionally, the citizens say that the government do not support farms, nor does the government tell citizens about funding available for certain programs and businesses.

In Chapter 5 there is a passage that discusses the frustration the doctors are having toward the Lees. Neil and Peggy were very upset at the parents for their noncompliance and it was difficult to work with the Lees because of how hard the work was and they had to face resentment, instead of appreciation from the Lees. They were also frustrated that the Lees never paid for any medical care and didn’t seem to appreciate their generosity for helping them when Medi-Cal was a low insurance program. Lia’s parents made Peggy and Neil feel as if all their year’s education, awards, and the amount of time they spent educating themselves about the Hmong didn’t matter. They struggled watching Lia fail to receive treatment and thought they could give her a better life (Passage summary found on page

Unlike Tennessee, Mississippi suffered from decreased farm prices throughout the depression. The great depression caused many farms to go into debt, and also a lot of banks lost many people to go hungry, because of their life savings gone to waste. .
