- from Great Depression
The New Deal brought relief to many people, but the country’s recovery was slow. In 1936, Roosevelt was reelected in another landslide, but unemployment kept rising.
By May of 1938, 11 million people were still out of work.
Roosevelt gave his second inaugural address. In it, he noted that the country was still in trouble when he said, “I see one-third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clad, ill-nourished.”
