The task in front of the nation is a big one, as of April 1, 2009, and much manpower needs to be organized for it. Our level of unemployment should be viewed as an anchor and a drag. Idle people represent a loss of potential that day by day can not be recovered. The idea of make work is repulsive to many but the list of need-get-done's grows and when people are mobilized they are much less demoralized.
Step 3 is the creation of a worker pool on a local basis that puts focus on training, evaluation, and certifications of as broad a range as possible. Construction, Maintenance and Repair, Supply-Chain, Nursing and Heath Care roles, Teaching, and all the technical aspects the many budding industries are just a few of the possible purviews.
The new WPA/CCC would have it's own tasks but would also function as an employment agency and rotate temporary personnel to clients on a contract basis. Personnel could go permanent any time they wish if the client wants them ( no mandatory temp period ) or opt for more rotation and training, evaluation, and certification. Personnel would teach each other and also be involved with canvasing for placement of each other in assignments. Large and small scale manpower needs could be organized at the drop of a hat for any public or private project.

OVERVIEW OF THE WPA
New Deal Art During the Great Depression
One very important aspect of the purpose of such a endeavor is to draw up as great an amount of the idle as possible to prevent the depression of wages from too large a glut of job seekers in competition. When two employers compete for one worker we have freedom, when two workers compete for the one job we have slavery. Thus paraphrased from the Mount Vernon Papers of Henry C. Carey.
My viewpoint is having idle workers impacts on the overall productivity and could this be avoided we all benefit. Who's interest does it serve to have idle workers? Only those who would like to reduce the workers negotiating position. When I go to the workplace to barter an exchange for my muscle power, labor, sweat, skill, knowledge, expertise, and ingenuity, I would like to have the best negotiating position possible!
This principle applies to the contractor as well, if too many contractors compete for the winning of bids the wining price is depressed, if the call for jobs bids is increased the less the idle contractors and the higher the wining bids.
Additionally a benefit would be to increase the ability to compile data on the actual functional quality of our domestic workforce and to be better able to assess the need of preparation and future planning.
If funds are to be set to the purpose of providing a subsistence safety net I would prefer that people have task instead of idleness and depression.
