Was the WPA a reform?
President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the WPA with an executive order on May 6, 1935. It was part of his New Deal plan to lift the country out of the Great Depression by reforming the financial system and restoring the economy to pre-Depression levels.
One of Roosevelt’s main reform policies that came under question was the National Labor Relations Act (1935). Also known as the Wagner Act, this unprecedented piece of legislation fought to form a better relationship between labor and management (Roosevelt 1).
In addition to the Agricultural Adjustment Act, the Tennessee Valley Authority Act and the National Industrial Recovery Act, Roosevelt had won passage of 12 other major laws, including the Glass-Steagall Act (an important banking bill) and the Home Owners’ Loan Act, in his first 100 days in office.
The Relief programs, on which this section focuses, were implemented to immediately stop the continued economic freefall. These included the Emergency Banking Act, which ensured that only solvent banks remained open, and bank holidays that would close financial institutions when a wave of financial panic occurred.
Relief was direct, immediate support for unemployed and poverty-stricken Americans. Recovery meant bringing the economy back to the level of stability and prosperity. Reform entailed introducing measures that would prevent a similar crisis in the future.
The programs focused on what historians refer to as the “3 R’s”: relief for the unemployed and poor, recovery of the economy back to normal levels, and reform of the financial system to prevent a repeat depression.
RELIEF: Giving direct aid to reduce the suffering of the poor and the unemployed. RECOVERY: Recovery of the economy. … REFORM: Reform of the financial system to ease the economic crisis and introducing permanent programs to avoid another depression and insuring against future economic disasters.
The New Deal is often summed up by the “Three Rs”: relief (for the unemployed) recovery (of the economy through federal spending and job creation), and. reform (of capitalism, by means of regulatory legislation and the creation of new social welfare programs).
