In 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt brought in the first “New Deal.” This was first step in helping railroads and agriculture to help realign the economy toward producing more equality. The second “New Deal” came in 1934 which then instated political legislation and social institutions in order to help the working class. These institutions and political legislation come in the form of social security, unemployment, the Wagner Act, National Labor Relations Act and Fair Labor Standards. However during this time corporations as well as labor still learning to readjust still did not come without continuing battles. Then in 1939 came World War II. The government realized they needed to enlist in the help of corporations as well as the working class. Because of the continued confrontations still happening between labor and the corporations, the government would have to do something to produce a harmonious relationship between corporations, labor and the political government. Government then began posing regulations upon corporations and enforcing labor standards bring in a more equitable relationship. As the war continued corporations and labor finally settled in and began to work together with government. They were producing more than had ever been produced before. Labor was happy because for the first time they felt as though they had wealth and power. The corporations on the other hand had mixed emotions. Although their profits were rising and had to make concessions, they still were unhappy with the regulations that were placed upon them. They felt as even though workers were gaining wealth, they were being restricted to operate as they see fit. However, the government then put the idea out there to take their pro... ... middle of paper ... ...ires to help themselves gain back their wealth and power in which they had before making the concessions they did during the war. Unions also should have also realized they had many internal problems such as crime, corruption, discrimination and a weak solidarity for its base. For strength comes in numbers; numbers they did not have and the need for an alliance with a dominate, political party with members which shared the same vision of social equality and not a combination of right-left wing members. Since none of this happened, labor has been grabbing for straws in all directions since the 1940’s and not knowing exactly which direction to go, This has cause the downward spiral that has taken place and still continues today. Without a highly strategic plan encompassing all walks, continued failure will be the inevitable as we watch this downward spiral persist.
