When World War II ended in 1945, the United States embarked upon an unprecedented period of economic prosperity, driven by the increase in industrial production markets brought about by the war. Unlike the Great Depression and the war years, Americans had a surplus of goods and services from which to choose, and the money with which to purchase them. Non-farming businesses grew by one-third, and housing construction became a booming industry. However, the economic situation was not improved for the poorest Americans during this time. The economic boom brought high inflation, which kept poorer citizens from saving any money, and small farmers faced hard times because of government policies that benefitted larger, corporate farmers. The lowest-paid workers in the country were the migrant farm workers, with sales clerks and unskilled laborers (such as gas station attendants) not far above them. Happy, a sales clerk, and Biff, a farm worker, represent this segment of the American workforce in Death of a Salesman,and each of them struggles to retain his dignity in the face of his lowly position in a largely affluent society.
Life was hard and money was tight.
Very austere and war directed.

Baseball's just about it in America.

What was life like before Albert Einstein moved to America
Life for the Poles in America was like life for everyone else. What it was like depended on what period of time is being considered. Live in 1803 was different from life in 1703 or 1903 or 2003.
It started in the late 1940s, but America joined in the 1960s.
Life in colonial America was very simple. Everyday life included things like, farming, outhouses, candles for light, and cooking on an open fire.
Lots of manual work. Lots of children in the family. In 1940 improvised life style. Gadgets and mechanical help to do chores of work.
Not that different from North America
the same as America
Hard for them.
