Secretary of Labor
We need to make both north and south dependent on each others economy (we can do this by sharecropping)
As you know southern farmers are sneaky so farmers must get their sharecrop report checked at an official office then sharecroppers will get their pay
This will solve the freedmen from getting ripped off
- We must convince southern farmers that we are dependent on each other(this will reunite our agricultural relationship)
- At right is a picture of sharecroppers(Sharecropping was a common way whites exploited blacks in the south)
- Sharecropping will replace slavery
Secretary of Agriculture
- My job is to work with the farmers and produce food throughout the country.
- Mainly produce corn, wheat, and cotton.
- Policy: farmers will get $3 a day for full time, and $1 a day for part time.
- Reconstructing the farms: need mechanical plows, water, workers, and government funded money.
- Sharecropping will replace slavery. (have office to make sure freedmen are getting paid the right amount)
These sharecroppers are picking cotton.
These farmers are working with plows, in the field. They are sharecroppers.
We will grow lots of this.
