Straggling in a Good Economy, and Now Struggling in a Crisis

The coronavirus pandemic has shown

how close to the edge many Americans were living,

with pay and benefits eroding even as corporate profits surged.

First published

in Life Magazine’s February 1937 issue,

World’s Highest Standard of Living

became instantly recognizable

to many Americans during the Great Depression

for its starkly ironic juxtaposition of an idealized America

alongside the grimmer aspects of everyday reality.

 

Often thought to be an unemployment line,

the photo was actually taken in Louisville

after the flooding of the Ohio River,

which killed almost 400 people

and displaced about a million more across four states.
