During the Great Depression, unemployment was high, jobs were hard to come by and lots of folks had trouble putting food on the table because their meager budgets were stretched to the limit.
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
With the U.S still recovering from one of the worse depressions since World War II, many people today are looking back at those “hard times” to learn more about how our parents and grandparents were able to manage.
