New Deal agency established to create codes of fair practice

Formed in 1933 by the National Industrial Recovery Act, the goal of the National Recovery Administration was to create codes of fair practices and set prices, and to allow industries to come together and write "codes of fair competition." The codes intended both to help workers set maximum wages and maximum weekly hours, as well as minimum prices at which products could be sold. The Supreme Court unanimously declared the NRA law unconstitutional in 1935, stopping its operations, but many of its provisions reappeared in the National Labor Relations Act passed later that same year.
