National Industrial Recovery Act

On June 16, 1933, this act established the National Recovery Administration, which supervised fair trade codes and guaranteed a right to collective bargaining. The NIRA was one of the most important and daring measures of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. It was enacted during the famous First Hundred Days of his presidency and was one of the main was to help reverse the collapse of the Great Depression.

NIRA was divided into three sections, or titles. Title 1 promoted centralized economic planning by instituting codes of fair competition for industry. Title 2 provided $3.3 billion for public works projects. Title 3 contained minor amendments to the Emergency Relief and Construction Act of 1932.
The NIRA was supposed to make it so people couldn't get shorted when they worked such as less pay than others or less hours. It made fair practices. So they wouldn't get cheated out or someone wouldn't get more than everyone else.

For two years it attempted to make structural changes in the industrial part of the economy and to alleviate unemployment with a public works program. It succeeded only partially in accomplishing its goals, and on May 27, 1935, less than three weeks before the act would have expired, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional.
