Found a neat little article from November 1965, about the Government Works Program to use out of work people to harvest crops. I thought it interesting enough to scan & share, hope you enjoy.

They couldn't do that today! They'd put all the illegal immigrants out of work! The ACLU would have a conniption!

It is a shame the way our society is now a days. This should be able to work the way it was designed then. Now everyone wants to sue because of anything they can think of and the bad part is judges award the f'ing idiots their claims.
