The Norris-LaGuardia Act was implemented in 1932 in order to eradicate certain legal and judicial barriers against the actions of organized labor in the United States. The Rift between the trade unions and the employers are not unknown to the world, as this issue has been raising its head every now and then in the history of industrial and labor development.

When does the government have the right to legislate morality? Prohibition taught the American government the negative consequences of controlling what people do or how they act and showed what happens when the government tries to legislate morality. The 18th amendment, which was also known as the Prohibition, prohibited the sale, manufacture, and transportation of alcohol (George, Robert P). The 18th amendment was passed on January 16, 1919, but did not go into effect until January 16, 1920 (Hoyt, Alai). This started the Prohibition Era in America (Hoyt, Alai).
I find the notion that we should “occupy Black Friday””(Andrew Leonard’s “Black Friday: Consumerism vs. Civilization”).

In 1914, this act was made to strengthen the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890. The new Clayton Act did not allow corporation to gain stock to create a monopoly. If a company was to violate the law, its officers were able to be prosecuted.
Eventually Roosevelt backed down. In 1903, Roosevelt wanted Congress to create a Department of Commerce and Labor to investigate corporations engaged in interstate commerce. When Congress did not want to do it, he took measures to ensure that they would pass it and they did in the end. Through these things in the reading along with the other things he did we see that Roosevelt while progressive went about it differently than Wilson did. While Roosevelt was able to get
The Prohibition, for example was the ban of liquor from being manufactured and sold. In 1906 the Anti- Saloon League started making attacks on the sale of liquor. In turn many factories supported the ban of alcohol, (the Prohibition) so they could prevent any accidents to come and increase worker efficiency. In order to save grain for producing food there was, in 1917 after World War one started, a wartime prohibition. The 18th Amendment was then suggested by Congress which banned the manufacture, transportation and sale of intoxicating liquors, for state ratification.

The Pendleton act influenced the Corporations, the name for it was the Pennsylvania Idea. In the late 1800s’ senators, mainly republicans senators, the republicans that wanted to become president.
