Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
I'd have to say C!. A lot of folks would have suddenly found themselves unemplyed during the Great Depression and a drop is usually a bad thing!. But where unemployment is concerned it's the opposite because you always hear about unemployment being on the rise as a bad thing but the dropping unemployment rate is a good thing!. During WWII you had far more jobs available, not just as soldiers and sailors but also in the factories and food industry (remeber all those soldiers and sailors had to be fed which meant those companies which produced the food shipped to the soldiers and sailors needed to increase their own work force)!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

The onset of the Great Depression saw the largest increase in unemployment!. George W Bush's presidency saw an increase at the onset!.

The Second World War saw a decrease from
1939 17!.2%
1940 14!.6%
1941 9!.9%
1942 4!.7%
1943 1!.9%Www@QuestionHome@Com

I want to say A, but something's tickling my memory regarding D!. I'd look into that one a bit more!. However, I would hardly category his presidency as "a major historical event" so I'm sure A is probably right!.

I know for a fact it wouldn't be either war, as war is inherently an employer of men!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
