American History of the 1930's
Running a background check on the 1930s in America is a sad thing. The Great Depression left many without jobs and around 25% of the entire country was unemployed. Considering that the country had nearly 123 million people, that was a significant amount of people without jobs. The average salary dropped as well, with some earning as little as $20 a month and others earning around $40 a month. Food prices were fairly low, but most couldn’t afford even the basics. A dozen eggs cost 18 cents, soap was 6 cents and a loaf of bread was just 8 cents. The following resources cover even more topics relating to America in the 1930s.
