the bubonic plague and how it affected the peasants

By David Webb

The Bubonic Plague affected  the  peasants  in medieval Europe by helping to end feudalism because they started to demand higher wages and  because the peasants started dying. The peasants that lived  got to be in demand. Plus the people were dying so that just mean less peasants=less workers so they just started asking for more pay. The advantage for the higher wages was the black death was killing a lot of  people so that meant there was less food and desperate nobles. So then if the nobles said no the peasants would simply walk off the job. So basically to sum up this the peasants would simply walk of the job or quit if they didn't get higher wages therefore the nobles were so desperate that they agreed to give the higher wages and better working conditions.
