By examining the textile, clothing, coal, automobile, and steel industries, Vittoz shows that a variety of interest-group pressures were responsible for many New Deal labor reforms. The author demonstrates that labor and its political allies took much of the initiative for proposing new laws and policies and that reforms were possible because portions of the business community believed that government-enforced labor standards could serve their own competitive interests.Originally published in 1987.A UNC Press Enduring Edition -- UNC Press Enduring Editions use the latest in digital technology to make available again books from our distinguished backlist that were previously out of print.
