Karolis Braciulis Nectar in a Sieve P5H Setting:Rural India Rural areas were calm until industrialization(tannery) showed up. The Tannery can be helpful or bad for the village.Ex. If you get a job at the Tannery then you can make more money than working in the fields. It also is turning the rural village more into a small town.Some negative effects because of the Tannery are that prices on food have risen, and some farmers cannot afford to buy food now. The Tannery is noisy, and disturbs the peace of the village.
What people began to realize is that in the beginning the settlers did not have the appropriate knowledge at the time that was necessary to avoid the mistakes that were made. Their mistake was over working the land that had not adapted to the kind of agriculture that was thrust upon it. The weather during the 1930s also did not help, and as Mark Svoboda says, “Mother Nature holds all the cards.” Lots of people suffered a great loss during one of the most difficult times in U.S history. People had committed suicide, experienced foreclosure or bankruptcies, and some ended up extremely sick and died. These problems were everyday in the Dust Bowl, and made living during the depression even more difficult for them.
Many farmers could not compete with these low prices and lost or sold their farms.

And he wasn’t alone. If people did not get their money fast enough from a bank and it closed, that money would be lost forever. The failing banks alone had a huge affect on the economy of the country for this reason. Even though the Great Depression was not President Hoover’s fault, many Americans blamed him and where not happy with how he handled this severe situation. Homeless people built “Hoovervilles”, which were small shantytowns where homeless individuals and families lived.

Clavers found it a bit harder to befriend her neighbors in Michigan. Being from Boston, the Clavers family were used to a specific way of living that opposed that of the western frontier. Not only did Mrs. Cavers have pre made assumptions of westerners, but her neighbors have also believed that because the Clavers family were from eastern civilization that they thought of themselves too good for the simple frontier life. On one occasion Mrs. Clavers found herself immensely ill and unable to care for the rest of her family who was also beginning to fall of illness. She expected her neighbors to come and help relieve her of some household duties but they never came.
But also, these places are tiny towns where ex-slaves could dwell after being free during the Civil War (Jeffreys, 1994, p. 677). In addition, when many industries escaped from central cities and older industrial sites, there were degenerating infrastructure, environmental pollution, and poverty. Deteriorating communities in the economy do not have many choices. Some poor people are so desperate that they just choose a low-paid job even though the job is very hazardous. They just need to choose between joblessness and the job that injures their health and their family and community.
It is a tough reality of the Great Depression that “dead broke” farmers were forced to sell everything they own at auction and received as little as pennies per acre for their property (268). This continued until the government created an “adjudication committee” which “gave [farmers] a chance” to keep their property by working to create a new payment schedule (249). Although being a tremendous gift to the farmer, it was created to assist banks and businesses that realized that allowing a farmer to refinance actually benefit them because they would not have to rent the land to farmers... ... middle of paper ... ...e Ku Klux Klan often became the union figure in some mining societies (234). Either way, mining towns were consistently unstable, as strikes would break out over the unfair labor conditions and government intervention, with armed personnel and strikebreakers on the side of the miners, would be necessary for any mediation (229). Although the changes were seemingly small, the Great Depression forced America toward progressive policies, characterized by the importance, success, and continuation of developing labor unions in mining towns.
However, Jack takes this trivial piece of history and treats himself as if he were the richest man alive. This idea of wealth without working hurts Tess and her family throughout the novel. Her family and their working class lifestyle are representative of the struggles of the working class in England. The fictional country of Wessex, where Tess and her family lived, was intended to show trials and tribulations of the rural people during the industrial revolution and social dislocation (Ghosh 6474). The industrial revolution caused problems for many of the people of Dorset, Hardy’s native land.
Maycomb is town with traditional old generation because their thinking is different than the city people, they dress differently and people like Aunt Alexandra would want to teach their kids about their family name or its legacy. Everything around Maycomb is old as well, like the road of Maycomb changes color when it rains(sparknotes.com). The description of Maycomb when she recalls as an adult, makes people feel like its a slow and boring town basically. The town has hoover carts and dirt roads, this sets the readers an idea that the town must have be a poor one because of the Great Depression, where almost no one has a job and there are no money to buy things. Scout also describes how the town felt like it was more than 24 hours a day and nobody is hurrying to anywhere for there’s not really a specific place that one would go at that time(goodreads.com).
