Introducing the New Deal!
The Great Depression Comes to an End
The Start of the Great Depression
Since (not because of) the stock market crash, many Americans were left unemployed. A few unpaid rents later, many were left homeless and starving.
WWII and the "War Economy"
The New Deal was introduced in 1933. It was a government program to provide food and shelter to the needy. The New Deal helped to provide jobs on building dams, it helped with a Social Security for senior citizens, and it made laws like minimum wage.
1939 is the start of an improving economy
Japan attacks Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The attack led to U.S. to join the war. Although America wanted to remain neutral in the war because the country was repairing itself, they had to join because American citizens were killed.
From 1940 to 1943, weapon production rates raise significantly in the U.S as WWII begins (September 1, 1939), and the U.S. joins the war (1941), thus many defense-related jobs open up, especially for women.
