"I see one-third of the nation ill-housed, ill-clad, ill-nourished."
—Franklin D. Roosevelt
The effects of the 1929 stock market collapse rippled through the nation in ever-widening circles of bankruptcies, unemployment, and poverty. In the frantically paced first 100 days of his administration, FDR instigated numerous efforts to save American society from the ravages of the Great Depression—efforts which became known collectively as the New Deal. While many of the programs lasted only until World War II, others became permanent fixtures in American life. Join a noted labor historian as he discusses the 1930's New Deal experience and its legacy today.
