Thirties epoch is a prominent in the U.S. history which was a well-known decade called (The Great Depression) when the American people had lived under harshest economic and social conditions, even lived the political instability because of the Stock Market Crash at the end of 1929. The American people felt whether because of the government's inability to confront the crisis at the beginning or because of tensions in the social fabric that caused by the inflation of unemployment rate, crime, racism against blacks, and the ascendance of radicalism in its different factions that had taken its positions at U.S. political arena in order to play its role as a substitute of the government's disablement in an attempt to find solutions for the deteriorated situation. The crisis continued until the beginning of the WWII, through that American government tried to tackle the crisis through drafting several bills were ratified by Congress, the U.S. President Herbert Hoover who took the office between 1928-1932 couldn't find a suitable bill to overcome the American people's crisis despite his strenuous attempts that one of them appeared through the comprehensive voluntarism project for providing an opportunity of equal wages. The American people entered a new episode of this conflict when the U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt took the office hoping he will find a radical solution for the crisis unlike his predecessor. Undoubtedly and even weren't sustainable solutions, the President Roosevelt shaped an important decisions mitigated the flames of the crisis, and the pain of American people.
