Children with special needs are most certainly taken better care these days. If you think otherwise, then you have no idea how shitty it used to be for them. Not to mention that child labor, which often wasn't very different from slavery, was still very common in USA in the 20's, before it started to disappear in the 30's.
Yeah, housing prices are higher (It's called "inflation", check it out). People on average also have much more money, and can buy much better houses with much better facilities, than they could in the 30's.
But yeah, now women are allowed to go to work. The horror, the horror.
