Which war? People have the same types of jobs during a war as during peace time, but a few less people have jobs providing luxury goods and services and quite a few more are working in defense-related industries and in the military. * Some cared for the dead and the dying, * Some worked on farms and in defense plants, * Some got wealthy servicing the black market. * A few were not effected by the war at all, but the vast majority were. * Some worked a regular job and did volunteer work regularly. * Some spent the war locked in internment camps. * In Alcatraz the prisoners built things for the services and did their laundry. * For many, life went on while awaiting that dreaded War Department Telegam.

That changed rapidly during World War 2, especially from late 1940 onwards. At first, there were all kinds of restrictions on the jobs that "enemy aliens" (that is, people with German or Austrian passports) could do. For example, many of the early refugees had to go into domestic service. Later, it became policy to make full use of their skills.

They didn't have any jobs because they were evacuated apart from working for the people they were staying with.

In world war two there were many jobs for both genders. With the soldiers off fighting, women here had to take on the job roles in factories to continue production as well as send goods over to troops. So jobs during World War Two were: Factory Jobs Soldier General Nurse Doctor Farmer (people still need to eat, even in a crisis) Government Messenger Sniper Spy Various jobs on a boat Various jobs to do with airplanes

During World War 2, people at home helped by filling in at the jobs that were vacant. People also helped by giving their support by writing letters to keep the spirits up of the soldiers.
