What role did labor play in World War II?
The National War Labor Board was established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in early 1942. Its purpose was to prevent strikes and work stoppages that might cripple the war production effort in America. The National War Labor Board would act as an arbitrator or mediator in any labor-management dispute cases that arose.
