FILE - In this Sept. 7, 1942, file photo President Franklin Roosevelt addresses the nation via radio and repeated his message to Congress, that it must pass anti-inflation laws by October 1 or that he will take the matter in his own hands and use his executive power to bring about ?overall stabilization on prices, salaries, wages and profits. Roosevelt did establish wage and price controls as part of the nation's emergency response to World War II. Businesses can't attract workers with higher pay so instead they compete through added benefits, including health insurance, which unexpectedly grows into a workplace perk. Workplace plans get a boost the following year when the government says it won't tax employers' contributions to employee health insurance. (AP Photo/File)
