Dr. Ruth Ellen Wasem Presents "Lessons for Today from Employment Act of 1946"

New Deal programs followed by wartime deficit spending showed that government could - and man felt should - play an active role in stabilizing the economy and creating opportunity for workers. The Employment Act of 1946 was a dramatic step toward this goal. Please join Dr. Ruth Ellen Wasem as she discusses whether the Employment Act of 1946 is the sort of focus needed today to spur hiring and strengthening the economy.
