The dignity of work

The various economic stimuli proposed by the Obama team needs to look back at another time when this country was reeling to recover from the Great Depression.

Most Americans today are too young to remember the WPA and PWA but the legacy of these initiatives can be seen in the infrastructure improvements that still exist today.

A good portion of this nation's infrastructure is crumbling. If people need work, then priority should be given to those projects through something similar to the WPA and PWA. Let's rebuild America.
