I am still waiting on the plan to put 93M people to work ...
Galley rowing ships. “They" would be paid though--about half the minimum wage. Aside from putting millions back to work it could also be promoted as an environmentally friendly mode of transport. No burned fossil fuels and all of that..........
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

Feeding your rowers could get expensive. I know where you could find a lot of people you would not have to feed much: Just go round them up at every WalMart.
You could sell it as a job program combined with a weight-loss program!
Seriously though, my 62 year old wife is in a quandary: Should she go find a job with an employer that supplies group coverage, or can she just coast on ACA for three more years? Republican plans would charge her 5x instead of 3x, but give her $4000. What's the difference? Unless they kill ACA with no replacement, because they don't have the votes to do anything but do have the votes to death spiral ACA.
The race to the bottom..."yeah, we can win that race!"
To quote our feckless liter: "We're gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning."
