99. unemployment insurance was part of the social security act of 1935.
food stamps pilot during the depression and 1961-64, full food stamps act = 1964. veterans programs institution = 30s through 50s.

plus, you know, wages were increasing in the 50s & 60s, not decreasing, and unemployment never got over 9%.
