This image shows that there’s an American family who is putting food on the table for his family. Outside their window the Dynamiters who is the banker and the employer are throwing a bomb of wage cuts, the bomb will burn everything. The artist feels sympathy for the family, he took his time to draw everything in the house with a lots of details. But the artist didn’t really care about the banker and the employer because they were trying to kill innocent people. The banker is cheering his employer by saying ATTA BOY. So, basically I think the bankers and the employers don’t care about what happens to people as long as they get money. Employers over employers is one of the main causes. Wage cut happened to be one of the main causes of Great Depression.

“Atta Boy!” says the BIG BANKER to the EMPLOYER/OWNER while the hard working American Family suffers the consequences.

    Z Power, as the title suggests, this cartoon was in the 1920s. If you had to guess, do you think it was triggered by the riots, strikes, and social instability of 1919? Do you think it happened before or after the Stock Market Crash of 1929? It think its interesting that the “Red Scare” and the Palmer Raids put the blame for social instability on immigrants, socialists and communists while this cartoon puts the blame on Capitalist Bankers and Business Owners.

    Life was tough when there was monopoly during the 19th century. Child labor, unfair wages for women and children, long working hours and so on.
    Sadly, this kind of horrible station still exist in our world today.
