Life of a factory worker during the New Deal

A Factory Worker was hit hard when the Great Depression came around. Thankfully the New Deal was created. For people who didnt have jobs were offered jobs. But it might have effected the factory worker because they might have been paid more before and then when the factories started hiring new people they were probaly paid less and this could have effected them because they could have been the supporters in their house. Resulting that they become even more poor than before and that it puts them into debt more.

Anti-German Propaganda (WWI)

This first propaganda poster shows people what could happen if they didn't join to help their country's fight in the war. Which this probaly shows an extreme exageration as to what might have happened.

The second propanganda poster shows how the American people should be even more influnced to go into the war so that they can stop the enemy and protect the women and children.

The third propanganda poster shows how the Germans had control over other countries and armies during WWI.

The fourth propanganda poster shows Uncle Sam wanting the American people to do their part and help in the war. Its saying that it is in your hands as a country to pull together and defend the country's honor in the war.

This is a modern day propaganda poster and it shows how people think that our soldiers are over there in war now just for oil. It is really different to propaganda back during WWI.

One of the problems that the progressive movement looked upon was women's rights. They passed new laws like suffrage for women. It wasn't easy for these laws to be passed. This would give women the right to vote and many other things. The National American Women Suffrage Association (NAWSA) adopted the so-called Winning Plan: grass-roots organization with tight central coordination. The Cultural assumtions about the "woman's sphere" weakened as women became active in many fronts. They were sucessful in the women's rights during the Progressive Era.
