For in­fra­struc­ture, why not im­i­tate the WPA?

The Denver Post - - PERSPECTIVE -

The en­tire na­tion is need­ing in­fra­struc­ture work to­tal­ing bil­lions of dol­lars; there are many men and women who can­not find work. Why don’t we cre­ate an­other work­force like the WPA from the 1930s? The wel­fare and unem­ploy­ment money could eas­ily cover salaries and train­ing, and the men and women would have mar­ketable skills af­ter the in­fra­struc­ture work is com­pleted and our coun­try would be safe again. Work does won­ders for the self-im­age. Nancy Martinets, Den­ver
