This document contains written statements and oral testimony of witnesses who testified at a U.S. Senate hearing on the proposed Community Works Progress Act of 1992. The testimony centered on the United States' massive unemployment problem and the need to provide jobs and hope for many people. Sentiment was strong for passage of the Community Works Progress Act in order to create programs such as those developed by the Works Progress Administration of the 1930s. Such a program would create jobs and enable young people to get an education and upgrade their skills so as to live a more productive life in the future. At the same time, participants in the program would provide work needed by the nation as a whole, such as work in schools, with youth, with the elderly, in building roads and bridges, and in clean-up projects for parks and cities. Those who testified included senators, representatives of youth advocacy organizations, and city officials who had experience in similar types of programs. (KC)
