Summary
The Great Depression left millions of able and willing Americans bewildered and jobless. . . The dole was not enough; good sound men and women wanted to earn the help they got. This Prelinger Archives film illustrates how the Work Projects Administration program of public works benefits both unemployed workers and American society. Construction of all types is spotlighted--roads, reservoirs, bridges, sewers, airports--along with slum clearance for parks and playgrounds, traffic-surveying, textile- and garment-making, initiatives involving nurses and teachers, and more.
