From the report: “The United States government has funded employment and training programs since the New Deal in the 1930s. The Wagner-Peyser Act of 1933 created the United States Employment Service (ES), one of the oldest components of today’s employment and training program matrix. ES was a companion to the federal-state Unemployment Insurance Program (UI) and established basic services, such as job-search assistance and employment acquisition, designed to help those who were unemployed during the Great Depression.”
