FDR relief program which is know has the New Deal programs is collectively know has Federal One but critics calls it the "make work" program

At the local level, people who were getting government aid, either in the form of food coupons or cash, called it "being on relief" or " being on welfare".

Unlike today, in those days people still had a certain amount of personal pride, and were quite ashamed of having to "ask for help". Even though many of their neighbours were in the same boat, they still tried to keep it a secret.
