What significant labor legislation was signed by President Hoover?

President Hoover signed into law without comment the Norris-LaGuardia Act of 1932, named after Senator George Norris of Nebraska and Representative Fiorello LaGuardia of New York. This law prohibited judges from issuing injunctions, or court orders, limiting peaceful labor striking.
