Defining Organizational Change

The Korean War & Truman's Seizure Of US Steel Mills
[ send me this paper ]
A 25 page research paper. The 1952 Supreme Court case of Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v Sawyer 343 U.S. 579 circumscribed the powers of the presidency for one of the few times in the history of the United States. Citing both the fragility of the national economy and the needs of the fighting troops of the Korean War, President Harry Truman seized most of the country's steel mills in an effort to avert a steelworkers' strike that could have put troops in active warfare in even more danger stemming from a lack of necessary machinery and materiel. Strikes were commonplace in 1952 when the Supreme Court determined that Truman had overstepped the bounds provided for the presidency by the framers of the Constitution. Other factors were at play, however, and it appears that not all of them were taken into account by the Court. Bibliography lists 9 sources.
