Rescuing the American Dream

Record #:
State workers suffered immensely during the Great Depression whether agricultural or industrial laborers. President Roosevelt's New Deal aided the state's cotton and tobacco farmers by introducing the Agricultural Adjustment Acts. New Deal programs created opportunities through construction of new schools, hospitals, airports, found jobs for women in canneries and sewing shops, and put young men to work maintaining state parks.
