The United States during WWII went through many changes and is thought to have pulled us out of the Great Depression.
The reason as to why it pulled us out of the Great Depression is because farmers had produced over 324 million more bushels of wheat, 422 more bushels of corn, meaning that 5 percent of the world was producing half of the worlds manufactured goods.
The government also took greater control of the economy by making goods less available. Americans were limited on their purchases of groceries and gas, as well as redirecting fabrics which then switched up the fashion worn. Most factories attention was put on war materials which led to less production of other items.
As more men were leaving to fight in the war, woman were now given rights to be apart of the work field. Woman were seen being welders and electricians. Ford Motor Company even lifted a ban to hiring women for anything but secretary positions, which led to women making up half of their work force in Michigan.
Although woman's rights were becoming more free, other American's were not allowed to any freedoms because of their culture from their ancestors. This was mainly the Japanese. They had taken them out of their homes and sent them to jail, with no evidence of any wrong doing.
In January of 1942, they started sending them to facilities in Montana, New Mexico and North Dakota
The Japanese were unable to tell their families as to where they went and after several years, a desision during 1945 by the Supreme was made: In Endo v. the United States, it was ruled that the War Relocation Authority “has no authority to subject citizens who are concededly loyal to its leave procedure.”
