The Old WPA
For Our program we will improve on the Original Works Progress Administration.It was the most famous of Roosevelt New Deal Programs,and it employed 8.5 million people,and it paid them an average salary of $41.57 a month.It mostly employed unskilled men to do jobs like construction of public rods,bridges,parks,and airports.Some of the problems that the WPA had was that it paid low wages,and it did not employ everyone,and for the people it couldn't help were sent to state relief programs were they were paid $10 a week.
Our program will fix and improve from where the WPA left off.
The program will also pay workers with families an extra $20 a week.Our program,unlike the original WPA will send only a small percent of people to state relief programs,it will pay the rest $50-$60 a month while they go to counseling to help them find jobs.
