What it Will Do
There are many new goals in the 1930s. Some of these goals are about agricultural, Civil works, Social Security, and more. These topics are areas to create jobs during the depression. These jobs are needed because many people lost their jobs recently. These all are trying to pull together, to pull the country out of the Great Depression.
Agriculture Adjustment Act
We have new laws about agriculture. The Agriculture adjustment act ( or AAA ) has changed many policies about agriculture. It is a law that is supposed stop the large amount of crop growth. The purpose of this is to raise crop prices. This is done by not growing crops on all farm land, just some.
