The Fair Labored Standard Act happened, which created minimum wage. Also F.D.R received $5.5 billion dollars from Congress to create around 3.3 million jobs for jobless people. This made the Great Depression not so depressing. The court then ruled the National Recovery Act. This gave F.D.R less power. So F.D.R made 5 laws that gave him more power. Then there were many deaths and retirements of the Supreme Court, so F.D.R could put in people he liked. | After Roosevelt was elected again, Gardner began to dislike F.D.R's ideas.
