Direct Job Creation in America with Steven Attewell

In this episode, we’re joined by Steven Attewell, adjunct professor of Public Policy at the City University of New York’s School of Labor and Urban Studies. His recent book, People Must Live By Work (University of Pennsylvania Press), examines the history of direct job creation programs from the depths of the Great Depression and debates over the Employment Act of 1946 to the War on Poverty and the Humphrey-Hawkins Act of 1978.
