Yes. According to the U.S. Census, unemployment was 9.66% in 1941. This makes sense being that we were ramping up industrial output in support of Lend-Lease. When you look at the unemployment numbers from the start of FDR’s presidency you clan acually see the flaws in the New Deal that liberals lament for even today.

At first unemployment went down some until the end of 1937, then the economy began to tank again and unemployment took a sharp rise. It is only with the begining of industrialized efforts to support the European war effort that these numbers started to trend back down again.

Unemployment during the 30’s after 1933 varied between 15% and 25% for the most part.
