The Great Depression (1929-1939)
A Coggle Diagram about Labour Camps (Created to allow work for men who were unemployed and homeless. and Established by Richard Bedford Bennet on October 28th 1932), Farmers (Farmers in the 1930s were in great trouble), Unemployment (Millions of people were losing money, ownership, and jobs), The Great Depression effected everyone. Farmers were effected because everyone was trying to have a low enough price that people would buy their product, but the price would still be sustainable for them. This drove countless farmers to go out of business, and many of them traveled to cities to find work. But because there were no job openings their anyway, the city's population became a large amount of unemployed people. We believe that a multitude of these farmers were left by themselves with nothing but other unemployed people in the city. This not only drove the people insane, but also the government, as they did not have many options for these farmers and other unemployed people. , The relationship between the two factors unemployment and labour camps is that the people who ended up in labour camps ended up their because of the unemployment rates. People had no jobs, and they needed money to but food, and other essential items to live., Farmers were undoubtedly in a very tough position; they were forced to evacuate their farms and settle into urbanized cities, where there was not much room for them to stay. People living in the city were gradually losing their jobs and all the prices were dropping meaning companies could not maximize their profit. Since farmers were coming in at a fast rate with likely not much money to spend, finding a job would be dramatically more difficult to do. With this, unemployment numbers would continue to increase as more and more farmers who lost their farms kept migrating in. and Work Cited:
