Seems Like Only Five Years Ago

I mentioned the JTPA program

The law was enacted to establish federal assistance programs to prepare youth and unskilled adults for entry into the labor force and to provide job training to economically disadvantaged and other individuals facing serious barriers to employment. It was part of the Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development project initiated by the United States Department of Labor in the 1930s.

In order to carry out its purpose, the law authorized appropriations for fiscal year 1983 and for each succeeding fiscal year to carry out adult and youth programs, federally administered programs, summer youth employment and training programs, and employment and training assistance for dislocated workers.

Of course Very Serious People poo pooed the idea because deficits!
