During the Great Depression there were so many things people had to face. Many lost their jobs, homes, live savings and really anything they owned. Most of the Americans blamed this crisis on Hoover though since he was the president, but this all suddenly changed.
In 1932 someone new and more improved got elected, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. During FDR’s campaign, he created an inclusive program to fight the Great Depression which was also called the New Deal. This Deal program had lasted from 1933 to 1935, focusing on relief, recovery, and reform
What they did
In the New deal it included many different programs to help the Americans with their tough times and to also gain what they had back.
One program was called the Public Works Administration (PWA). This program was created by the National Recovery Act on June 16, 1933 to help the unemployed do work for money.
The workers for the PWA were paid to build roads, schools, airports, hospitals, post offices, dams, sewage plants, government buildings, port faculties, and courthouses all over the country.
The significance of the new deal program was that it provided employment for the ones without jobs, it stabilized purchasing power, and it improved public welfare and contributed to a revival of American industry.
