The National Recovery Administration (1933 - 1935) was one of any number of alphabet agencies that the New Deal administration created; the FDR critics at the time, like the historians today, all believed that it was one of the well-meaning Federal efforts that simply prolonged the the Great Depression.

This is 1933 editorial addressed the various violation codes (there were 500 of them) and punishments that the Federal Government was prepared to dish out to all businesses wishing to defy any of the assorted labor laws and price-fixing measures that the NRA was created to enforce.

"...if an individual rebels against the code provisions, there are ways to make it hot for him. He can be posted as a slacker and virtually boycotted. He may be required to secure a license from the government before he can operate. If he defies the government and goes on operating, he is subject to a fine of $500.00 and six months in prison".
