Men in Unemployment Line, San Antonio, September 1933

President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Federal Emergency Relief Administration which offered food, checks, and seasonal public works jobs for those enrolled by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment Service. Here, unemployed workers gather outside the U.S Labor Bureau office on Dolorosa Street in San Antonio in hope of receiving assistance.
