During the time of the Great Depression in the 1932's, banks foreclosed on more than 200,00 farms,homes, and businesses. The average salary was around $1,368. The United States population was 123,188,000 in 48 states. Food prices were very cheap. Having said that, here are some examples {Milk 14 cents a quart, Bread 9 cents a loaf,Round steak 42 cents a pound, and Lynchings $21. } Men and women were thrown out of work and then tons of people went hungry because of not having jobs. The unemployed Americans relied on local relief. Farmers burnt their crops and didn't plant their seeds. The reason being is because of the food prices being so low, no one was able to farm. Many children at play committed suicide or crimes to survive. During the depression, each state provided its own benefits. Around the USA over 60,00 workers lost their jobs every week. President Hoover increased taxes on all imported goods.

Try living like this every day, sleeping in a cardboard box all your life.
