The "Prompt Liquidation" of Works Project Administration


From the December 13, 2017, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1942, 75 Years Ago.

"President Roosevelt ordered the 'prompt liquidation' of the Works Project Administration.  War work has reached the point where a national work relief program is no longer needed."

Between people going into the military and working in war factories, there was no need to find jobs for people anymore.  The Great Depression was over.  But the WPA had done its job and we have many things still that came about because of this program.
