Bread Lines Seen in California

Bread lines were regularly seen in the 1930s during the Great Depression, when unemployment peaked at more than 25 percent and the stock market lost 90 percent of its value. Today, California's unemployment rate hit 8.4 percent.

A very sad video of residents of San Diego County standing in line outside of a Salvation Army for donated bread can be seen below.
