Banner, FDR for President

Description
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Campaign banner, 1932. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s election in 1932 and the subsequent New Deal legislation strengthened labor unions and social reform movements. Many within the Roosevelt Administration believed that the Depression resulted from under-consumption due to low wages. Through a number of programs — including the National Recovery Administration, the Wagner Labor Relations Act (which
protected labor organizing), and the Fair Labor Standards Act — the government raised wages and improved working conditions to put the economy back on track.
