Paper # 2
The country that I am researching is Jamaica during world war 2. A lot was going on during this time in Jamaica and the United States. Since the United Sates were at war during this time they were very strict about who they would let into the country as an immigrant.
During World War 2 and about a decade after natives of Jamaica were leaving the island for a better living in the United States or Britain. The reason for this was because in Jamaica the average citizen didn’t have much money, if any at all and the job market was very scarce. Basically you didn’t have any means of living or power if you weren’t part of the government, owned a bank or owned a private company, such as a store or factory. It is like a big circle of power because the banks and government worked hand and hand and if you wanted to start your own business you had to get approval from the government to build and most likely borrow a loan from the bank. Therefore the government and banks held the power in Jamaica. The relationship that Jamaica government has with the United States is that they joined the United Nation on September 18, 1962, according to the United Nations website.
The group of people that had the least power in Jamaica post World War 2 is the average citizen. The average citizen basically didn’t have any rights of say so in Jamaica.
