The PWA was the centerpiece of the New Deal program for building public housing for the poor people in cities. The competition over the size of expenditure, the selection of the administrator, and the appointment of staff at the state level, led to delays and to the ultimate failure of PWA as a recovery instrument.
The cautious and penurious Ickes won out over the more imaginative Hugh S. Johnson as chief of public works administration. Political competition between rival Democratic state organizations and between Democrats and Progressive Republicans led to delays in implementing PWA efforts on the local level.
Ickes instituted quotas for hiring skilled and unskilled black people in construction financed through the Public Works Administration PWA. Resistance from employers and unions was partially overcome by negotiations and implied sanctions.
Although results were ambiguous, the plan helped provide African Americans with employment, especially among unskilled workers. The WPA, headed by Harry Hopkinsengaged in smaller projects in close cooperation with local governments—such as building a city hall or sewers or sidewalks.
The PWA projects were much larger in scope, such as giant dams. The WPA hired only people on relief who were paid directly by the federal government. The PWA gave contracts to private firms who did all the hiring on the private sector job market.
