The Great Depression by Brittney Yuen

Companies began to lose money and didn't have enough money to pay employees so many people (beginning with younger employees) were fired and didn't have enough money to live stably

“men who had white collar jobs with oil companies, owned businesses etc and ate on credit at our place and brought their families there to eat, some as much as three meals a day. They ran up debts for food as much as $20 to $40 and then transferred out of town or bankrupted on the bill.”

People began to steal from businesses because they didn't have enough money. An example is that people would eat at restaurants and leave before having to pay for their meal. This caused businesses to lose money and not have enough to stay in business
