Why is it called the Great Depression?
By Lucy Manuel
Hobos, tramps, “ jungles”& “Riding the rails’’.
Suffered the most ever, pea pickers, waste nothing!
Sold land & belongings, left for west
FDR gave New Deal, elected in 1932
Many held strikes
It equals great sadness from losing jobs, money, and homes
Unemployed record high
Pay & business low, Stock Market crashed
Lasted more than a decade
