During the Great Depression the most well educated and hard working people were unable to find even the most menial of jobs. It’s not that these people weren’t looking for work, it’s that there was no money to go around. This destroyed companies and workers alike from the top down.

It just just how bad things were that this person who was a proud veteran with more skills than most people was unable to get a job. Many people had to travel west to find work as itinerant fruit and vegetable pickers, although just as many people tried to stick it out wherever they were hoping that things would pick up.
