Due to these changes in the way of life and the economy, standards of living began to change as well. These changes were partly due to the price controls set on the market by the federal government. Most of these controls were set to control inflation and maintain prices at the levels they were at in 1942. Acts by the National War Labor Board that limited wartime wage increases by around 15% helped curtail inflation and stop the cost of living from skyrocketing. This led to inflation staying steady around 3.5% between 1942 and 1946 compared to the 10.3% in the sixth months prior to April 1942. However, during this war wages still rose on average around 65% which meant most American civilians enjoyed a higher standard of living than pre-war times. However, as the average standard of living rose, other areas such as the rural south faced tougher economic times. As their crops’ prices were strictly controlled by the government the marginal farmers who could barely turn a profit were forced out of business and forced into lower wage farmhand jobs. The wages of these jobs failed to rise as quickly as those of the national average which left them working long hours for very little compensation. The effects of this downturn would be felt in the South for many years following the war. The last major change that occurred during WWII was massive population shifts throughout the nation. This was first spurred on by the nearly 15 million Americans who enlisted in the military and the 11.25 million of these who were sent overseas. This left new opportunities and jobs in the factories of the north for the unskilled laborers of the South. These jobs were especially welcoming due to the dramatic increase in wages that were mentioned above. Over 700,000 African Americans left the South in 1943 alone to look for factory jobs in the North and West. This migration was also due to the intense segregation experienced during this era in the South and their desire to escape to the more progressive North. Shortly following WWII, the South and all of America faced the Red Scare. This “Red Scare” was the fear of communism that could be seen throughout American culture in the 1940s and 50s. This coincided with the beginning of the Cold War with the Soviet Union, often seen as the face of communism. This scare was partly due to the stronger national government that had been created during WWII. By introducing income taxes and regulating prices the governm>GET ANSWER
