With the development of cities and industry, Americans have increasingly been dependent on a cash economy, supplying fewer of their needs directly. This dependency makes unemployment a dramatic problem, especially in urban centers, where large numbers of out-of-work people are tracked to tension and called for public involvement in their relief. But what about rural areas? As farming has declined, and small bussinesses which depend on farming have fallen suit, rural people have had to find new sources of employment. Increasingly, they have had to commute to urban centers to find jobs, and rural unemployment and underemployment have become a growing problem.
