What were living conditions during Great Depression?

The Great Depression was a huge economic disaster. The stock market crash of 1929, also known as "Black Tuesday", was the start of the Great Depression. It began in 1929 and went into the late 1930's. North America, Europe, and other industrialized nations were all involved in the Great Depression. Life during the Great Depression was unbearable for everyone. It had a tremendous impact on the whole entire nation. The economy had no money in it which led to tons of problems for everyone. People were losing their jobs left and right. Immigrants were coming in from other countries and offering to work for almost nothing and taking all of the jobs. Businesses and factories would hire the immigrants because they were saving tons of money by hiring them. People were being fired from their jobs and could not afford to give their families food and shelter. No one could find jobs because there were no jobs available. The unemployment rate was at its highest and the jobs available were at it‘s lowest. Millions of Americans went hungry because they had no money for food and the food was being rationed. The lack of food is one of the things that caused people's health to decline, both physically and mentally. People had very poor diets and were not getting the nutrition they needed. The poor living conditions that they had to endure caused sickness and disease to spread around. They couldn't afford medical care and the medical care standards were not where they should have been. A lot of people were stressed and becoming severely depressed and attempting suicide. The nation eventually recovered from the Great Depression into what it is now. Things are much better now than they were back then during the Great Depression. The economy has money in it now.
