Video Summary

Randolph Bromery perfectly explains the NYA to the tee. He explains the problems with it as well as the many benefits it had as a part of the New Deal. He points out that it helped the youth gain money to help their familys as they continue their education. He also points out though that for some people this wasnt the best option and some slacked or quit school because they'd rather just work instead of doing both.
