Because of these economics times that the world is currently in, the company found its business in disarray subsequently an action plan was put in place for the company could be saved. More than 34,000 of jobs were lost in the US and Canada alike at that time. As of January 16th 2009 a week after the motions were initiated in court, Circuit City decided to close all 567 remaining stores in the United States. The lost of these jobs have not only affected the company but their employees have suffered irreversible damage in these economic times. The communities were these jobs were lost have been devastated.
Hard Times shadowed across the globe as the stock market dropped rapidly. During the term of presidency of Herbert Hoover in 1929, the United States became a jobless nation and left many people homeless, penniless. The economy’s confidence was lowered as numerous banks failed. Since Americans were unable to look for support amongst each other, the government and charity were the only industries they could depend on for providing food. Amidst of such a high suicidal rate the United States grew in need of a new leader that would take higher precautions on how the country should be ran in order to enable them to rise out of the Depression.
Could all these things have come together to cause one of the greatest depression that America had felt? Many citizens revolted against their elected leaders and large discontent rose in America during this time period. New political factions rose in the era. Could this have been the birth of the progressive movement? The depression of the 1890’s ruined banks, farms, and many of the train leaders were declaring bankruptcy during this time period.
It’s a wonder anyone could have survived such a way during this time period in America. The first to happen to this family was little income. They were barely making it through when he lost his job. Several men during this time period became a part of the category, “unemployment.” The unemployment rate increased a lot during the great depression. People who lost their jobs could not feed themselves, pay their rent, and support their family.
The NDP favors a more equal distribution of wealth among Canadians and has supported controls on foreign investment in Canada. The New Democratic Party is the better choice for Canada. Jack Layton wants to reduce pollution and fight against global warming by putting new investments in renewable energy solutions.
People called these times the Great Depression. During the Great Depression, workers lost their jobs and many people went hungry as well. Milton didn’t want these things happening in Hershey, so he planned all kinds of new building projects to make sure all of his workers had a job. One day, someone had pointed out a steam shovel at one of his building sites. (The steam shovel did work for forty men.)
Crop prices fell by over fifty %. People went hungry because so much food was produced that production became unprofitable. Others were unemployed because they had produced more than could be sold. Huge numbers of Americans had their lives upset by the Depression. Tens of thousands of migrant farm workers travelled the nation looking for employment.
There is a large, growing gap between the rich and the poor in this country and the Canadian government is to blame. Throughout the previews decades, they have made an attempt or have given the impression that they are very concerned about the poor; they had meetings with representatives from every province in order to find a way to minimize poverty. Proposals were made in this meeting, such as improved social services, social utilities and opportunity programs directed to the needs of the poor. This was back in 1971, and today, 30 years later, there are more Canadians living in poverty than ever
The problem however, arises when steel prices by the ton drop. In an effort to save the company, Carnegie’s manager took it upon himself to make a cut in wages in order to adjust the budget. Many of these workers were barely making it then so of course this was a huge issue to face. They thought Carnegie was behind them; however, he had become a hypocrite that would do anything to save his company. They closed companies down with no prior warning, locking out over 1,000 individuals and leaving them with no job.
In these winter months there were signs of the country’s morale and unity breaking, it was not helped when Germany was hit with an influenza epidemic, wiping out 20-40 million, the resistance to the disease was lowered due to decline in living conditions. Inflation was also a problem facing Germany after the war, the people were forced to work longer hours, but wages still fell below the inflation rate. As a result of these effects social discontent grew, and anger was expressed at sharks of the industry who appeared to be making money from the war. The
