The Civil Works Administration was established during the Great Depression to rapidly create manual labor jobs for millions of unemployed workers. President Franklin D. Roosevelt unveiled the CWA on November 8, 1933. Roosevelt was convinced that jobs were much better for everyone than cash handouts. The CWA's workers laid 12 million feet of sewer pipe and built or improved 255,000 miles of roads, 40,000 schools, 3,700 playgrounds, and nearly 1,000 airports.
