The Great Depression began on September fourth and lasted until the late thirty's. It affected peoples lives in many different ways, but they still all shared poverty.

The Impact on jobs

The Dust Bowl

During the great depression many people relied on the government to give them food and money. Many people working on the farm had a lock of water. The air was very dry and hot. Because of this lack of water, the dust bowl began. The dust bowl killed many farmers crops resulting in even more money loss.
