Assuming you mean US progressive President Woodrow Wilson. while he was certainly a progressive, Wilson was also quite distracted during his two terms by a World War, and his desire for a permanent peace afterwards. On the domestic front, workers did make some gains, there were child labor laws put in place, a minimum wage (of sorts) established, but worker safety did not improve much, nor did unions make significant gains. In fact, Wilson allowed a backlash against communism during the First Red Scare that drug some union workers and leaders into the net of the Attorney General's office, wrongfully so. I don't give him very high marks.
