This week I was going to bring Abraham Lincoln 's plan for reconstruction to the table. It is said that Lincoln started to plan for reconstruction post war. The plan was to address three key areas for concern. First the proclamation allowed full pardon and restoration of any property to anyone who was considered a rebellion or a member of the confederate army with exception of the highest officials and leaders (which is interesting). It also allowed for a state government to be formed once ten percent of the population took an oath of allegiance to the United States, and it encouraged the southern states to deal with slaves in such a way that it would not compromise their freedom.
Up until 1872, the bureau supplied food and medical services, built thousands of schools and colleges and provided countless jobs for those freed men and their family. This social reform was never performed before, which shows its significance in attempting to rebuild the country for assist newly freed slaves . President Lincoln had planned for the reconstruction before his assassination which led to Lincoln’s 10 Percent Plan. It was a reconstruction plan aiming politically by replacing laws that reconstruct southern state governments and pardoning ex-Confederates except the commanders (406). As long as there were more than 10 percent of the vote population in an election, a new state would be recognized.

Darby Lumber Co., the Supreme Court kept the Fair Labor Standards Act, insinuating that Congress had the power under the Commerce Clause to regulate employment conditions. In 1938 the United States government passed a law called the Fair Labors Act, which enforced the minimum wage but also was the first time employers were forced to pay the employees for overtime in certain jobs. At the time the law passed, the country’s first minimum wage was $0.25 per hour. President Franklin Roosevelt saw the act as one of the most important pieces of the New Deal after the creation of Social Security and said it was “the most far-reaching, farsighted program for the benefit of workers ever adopted in this or any other country.” The Fair Labor Standards Act has been amended total of two times, and minimum wage has mostly increased after every few years, though President Obama stated in his State of the Union address, that minimum wage had fallen far behind inflation.

In 1911, one of the most infamous incidents in American industrial history occurred when the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City burned, killing 145 workers. It is one of the most remembered incidents since the deaths were largely preventable. Most victims died as a result of neglected safety features and locked doors within the factory building. While the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire did result in a new legislation for safety in the work place, it was not the most important result. The most important result was the institution of the process to enforce pre-existing legislation regarding worker safety and protection in the workplace along with the laws that followed.
Norris-LaGuardia Act of 1932 was enacted by congress it liberated organized labor from the federal courts injunctions. Prior to the act a federal judge could be convinced that a strike, picketing, or boycott would violate the law they would issue an injunction so that the union would have to stop the strike (Bernstein, N.N.. 2015). Norris-LaGuardia Act is called a "yellow dog" contract, an employee promises not to join the union to stay in contract with their employer. It made it so federal judges could not issue injunctions if the strike was not violent. The act defined "labor dispute" so that there was no possible misunderstanding of the terms of employment (Bernstein, N.N.. 2015).
