This paper examines the New Deal which was the form of economic stimulus used by the Roosevelt Administration during the Great Depression. The paper discusses the aims of the New Deal and the projects and programs that it implemented. It also discusses the success of the New Deal and why the plans that Roosevelt implemented worked.
From the Paper:"The Wagner Act was passed in 1935, and it guaranteed workers the right to organize and to choose their own representatives for collective bargaining with employers. It also prohibited an employer from interfering with the formation or administration of any labor organization and provided rules and procedures for carrying out collective bargaining under the control of the National Labor Relations Board. The Board was empowered to hold elections in order to decide which union was to represent the workers in bargaining with the employer. Employers felt that the Wagner Act was one-sided, maintaining that the Act supported labor entirely, since employers and their representatives could not exercise their constitutional rights to freedom of speech among their own employees. Some commentators point out that the National Labor Relations Board received considerable cooperation from both labor and management once World War II had started. After the war, though, the public began to agitate to amend the Act because it prohibited employers from performing certain labor practices and because there was no provision against unfair union practices. The act also required a union to bargain for all employees, including nonunion workers. There was thus an amendment made by the Taft-Hartley Law of 1947 which officially became the Labor-Management Relations Act of 1947."
