He fought for many reforms and government policies that favored working people over the wealthy industrialists. An ardent conservationist, Roosevelt took many steps to control the use of and to preserve natural resources. He has been described as was one of the most popular, most controversial and most significant presidents. He advocated for social reform, women's suffrage, child labor laws, the eight hour work day, workman's compensation and a living wage. At a time when people worked 7 days a week, he argued there should be one day of rest each week.
