• During the New Deal, the government hired 60% of the unemployed to build and renovate the nation’s infrastructure.

• Historical revisionists on the right would like to count those working for the WPA as ‘unemployed’ in their absurd attempts to prove the New Deal was a failure.

• The right likes to argue that the New Deal extended the Depression; but if so, it’s doubtful Roosevelt would have been reelected three more times.
