The New Deal was a time of reform and new plans, FDR is now known as one of the most famous and influential presidents, however during his presidency the new movements became known as possible socialist programs. Primarily, Social Security because it refuted self- determination and the idea that those should work for themselves and not be given things in life

along with individualism of the common man rather than the holistic approach. Conservatives believe that people should work until they’ve saved enough for retirement done by oneself. These approaches to Social Security still remain in place today as by some it is seem as socialism because other people are supporting those who are unable to do it themselves raising everyone to be equal. 5. How did the New Deal benefit workers? During Roosevelt's presidency with the New Deal the Wagner Act was put into place. Wagner introduced the National Labor Relations Act in the Senate. The Wagner Bill proposed to create a new independent agency to enforce employee rights rather than to mediate disputes. A board of three members were appointed by the president which is known as the National Labor Relations Board. It gave employees the right to form and join unions, and promoted collective bargaining with unions by a majority of the employees in an appropriate bargaining unit. The measure endorsed the principles of exclusive representation and majority rule, provided for enforcement of the Board's rulings, and covered most workers in industries whose operations affect interstate commerce. Overall, during the New Deal, the Wagner Act supported the working man and improved their working conditions. 6. Explain how FDR threatens checks and balances through his New Deal legislation? The implementation of checks and balances was put into place to prevent one branch of the government gaining too much power and overruling the other two. Much like in Abraham Lincoln’s presidency and many times in Jackson’s, FDR tested the use of this system many times in consensus with the Judicial Branch. FDR is known as the president to get us out of the Great Depression and his new deal was the main help, however it caused much controversy throughout both the Supreme Court and Congress through the passing of his laws. Part of the New Deal's plan were reform programs, and there were so many that the acronyms became known as alphabet soup. FDR felt it was a necessity to pass each program to get out of the Depression, however the Supreme Court did not rule in the same favor as the president. The court claimed many programs unconditional including the AAA and NRA.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
