New England Colonies
For jobs in Jamestown some people earned their livings by cutting timber from dense forests. They also ship, fished, or hunted whales along the coast. They did not have very good farmland so that was a big part of the problem for food limit , because they could not grow food/crops to eat. The New England built houses together that created a town.
Like all the all the other colonies. Another thing in common about the other colonies is that they all believed strongly in religion. One of the big parts including all the colonies was trade. They traded back and forth between each other. Which led them to have some of the stuff Jamestown lacked, such as crops from the middle colonies. England passed laws limiting colonists trades with other countries, witch did not help with the issue of the food limits at all.
Religion was a very big part of all of the colonies but, for the middle colonies it was such a big deal something had to be done. People got kicked out of the town for believing differently than they told them too. This problem was carried on to a Quaker. (A Quaker is someone is opposed to war and felt people should pray in their own way.) William Penn to be exact. The people of different religion were sent off to Pennsylvania. That is where William Penn was. William Penn believed strongly in protecting each others rights, freedom, and to practice his/her religion.
The African Americans jobs included farm work, house work, and cooking and preparing food. The southern colonies believed in trading thing like all other colonies. But, their trades were different. They had auctions. If you are wondering what the auctions were for... they auctioned off African Americans for slaves. There wasn't as many slaves as in the north than the south. Slaves had very few rights and were held against their will and freedom. Witch is always a bad decision to make.
