1. I think it will and sooner than you may think. Once these projects
get moving it's like a domino effect. You will start to see results quickly. Granted, I was a very young person back in the '40s and at that time we spent time in a rural are. Many of the kids I was in grammar school came from poor families, shoes hardly staying on their feet, clothes ill-fitting because they were hand-me-downs, you get the picture. I remember distinctly after the summer vacation and returning to school, many of those children looked so different. The boys had haircuts, shoes and all of the kids were dressed so nicely. I asked one girl about her pretty dress and where she got it. I remember her smiling so proudly and telling me her daddy had gotten a good job at the mill and her mama was able to buy lots of material to sew clothes.

It doesn't sound comparable to today, but it is. Six months later all the daddys had jobs, much construction was going on and there was always a road that was being worked on.
