Storyboard Text

  • Hi, my name is Derek and I'm here to educate you about the Great depression and how it affected the country and people. The Great Depression was a time of economic distress. The huge rise in unemployment put a huge strain on public finances, causes up to government debts. The effects in the United States were devastating with many years of economic problems and mass unemployment.
  • No jobs available
  • Citizens became furious and depressed from the Great Depression. Unemployment rate had risen up to 25%, leading to no jobs to offer and no money for people to support their families. Many had to rely on the support of free food but that wouldn’t cut it.
  • That's why the government established this act to help the citizens with their financial needs.
  • A short-lived US job creation program established by the New Deal to rapidly create manual labor jobs for millions of unemployed. It was called the Civil Work Administration Act.
  • This created opportunities for unemployed workers to make money and provide for their families.
  • After the Great Depression, slowly the economy improved and prosperity increased.
