Storyboard Text

  • We finally got some better working conditions..
  • Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt, 26th president of the United States. 
  • Unlike most presidents before him , Teddy Roosevelt was impartial and tried to satisfy both employers and workers. Workers Comp was introduced, and it ensured a better treatment of workers.
  • Teddy Roosevelt set aside federal land for national parks, established the United States Forest Service, and signed the Antiquities Act, under which he declared 18 new national monuments. 
  • In 1906 Teddy passed the meat inspection act of 1906, which was followed by the pure food and drug act. This ensured the prevention of misbranding and made it easier for consumers to know exactly what they were eating. 
  • Teddy Roosevelt improved public transportation (trains) by eliminating the monopolization of railroad companies. 
  • Coal Miners made demands for additional wage increases and a shorter work day, the results led to a coal strike. Coal provided heat to many homes, without heat, the country would freeze. Using his personal connections, Roosevelt was able to establish a meeting that would address many key factors, and bring the coal strike to an end.
