This chapter explores the economic and employment situation in Britain from the close of the First World War. It charts the unfolding of a world economic crisis in the 1920s and the response and actions of various international and national organisations. Early organisations and protests amongst unemployed groups are examined to demonstrate how the out of work became more organised following the economic crash of the early 1930s. The rise of unemployment in south Wales and the north-east is compared, and the economic and social conditions in both regions in the interwar period are placed within a national and international context.
