How would you know a city has been infected with the Black Plague? You could tell by there not being a lot of people and everything looking poorly and not in good condition.

What are the ways that the loss of common laborers changed Europe during the plague? There were a lot of more jobs and less people to fill them. Even the poor people have stuff that the rich used to be only able to have because there was so much stuff of people dying.
