2 Paragraphs

Describe the social and economic changes during the 1920’s.

In the spite of changes during the 1920’s, it gave the workers more leisure time. In the 1914, Henry Ford raised workers wages from $2.35 to $5 a day. He redued their work day fromm 9 to 8 hours a day. Since more leisure time became available, a flood of new affordable goods became avaliable to the public. Avaliablity of electricity led to spread sales of washing machines, vaccum cleaners, irons, radio’s, and refrigitors. Since cities grew, new immigrants, farmers left fields, African Americans, and Mexican Americans migrated to urban aeras. Suburban areas expanded with middle and upper class residents. Skyscrappers beging to shawdow the cities. People began to buy stock using credict. As long as the price of the stock rose, then the buyer could easily pay off the loan before it was due. While many American’s in the cities and suburbans enjoyed wealth, others remained to face proverty and injustice. Most urban resident still suffered from proverty. Factory workers remained reciving low wages comparted to corporate salaries. Farmers incomes declined during the 20’s and led them into an economic depression.
As a result in the 1920’s there were positives and negatives about the changes, upper class familes made it thourgh, while the poor familes barley made it even living in the urban area’s they still barley made it. Jobs we’re still on low wages, so familes who lived far away from their jobs and didn’t have cars to travel would barley have much money. The 1920’s made big changes in many peoples lives.


How did these changes impact American’s daily lives?

Changes of the 1920’s impacted and changed the American daily lives with the car makers Henry Ford. He brought the idea of mass production, the rapid manufacture of large numbers of identical products to the automobile industry. In 1908 the model T was introduced affordable to the public. His company built cars on assembly lines, so cars that took about 12 hours became 90 minutes. In 1919, about 10% percent American familes had owned their own cars and by 1927, 56%percent of American families had owned their cars. Since there was a big boom in automobile industry stimulated growth in other industries, steel, glass, rubber, asphalt, wood, gasoline, insurane and road construction. While those industry’s boomed, other types of forms of transportation had suffered the big increase. People who didn’t have cash would buy on credict. Installment buying is when consumers made a down payment and then pay off the rest of the debt in regular monthly payments. Many buyers gambles that they could sell the stock at a profit before the loan had been due. For the frist time in the U.S history, more people had lived in urban area’s than in rural division but rual and urban social cultural. There had been a increase in the boom of migration as well. U.S born American’s and nativists had argued that immigrants took jobs away from native born workers and had threatened American religious. Immigrants continued coming from Europe, many more Mexicans began migrating north and faced immigrants and discriminations.
In other words, changes in the 1920 had a huge impact on the American daily lives, dealing with transportation, credicts, jobs, and discrimination.

Annotation: This jazz recording was created by Rudy Wiedoeft, it was recorded in 1920. Back in the day, people must have danced to this song with their moves, it was proably played in bar's or elevators. I think this song is at fast pace, makes you just wanna get up dance all around.

Primary Source 3: Waltz - 1920's

1920's
Lisa Langley's insight:

Annotation: well this song does not say much, im guessing this song was done by Waltz in the 1920's. As you can see, this song would be great for two partner dance like the couples in the video dancing together. In my opion i could see this song more of in movies or in the silent theaters they had back then, i couldnt really see this song as a song to dance to.
