    People not working are a waste, so they should be given the opportunity to work making and doing real things for people whether in the private sector or via the public sector at reasonable wages.

    Many sewage and water systems are way past their expected life time.  Many built by New Deal programs.  Put people to work rebuilding those systems.

    High speed rail, public transport and other transportation infrastructure that make everyone's life better.

    Green energy.  Subsidies and direct government purchase.

    Basic research in all fields.  It will make everyone's life better in the long run in ways we cannot predict.

    There is likely more, but one point is that the resource to do the above are available.  There are plenty of unemployed to do the work, most do not use physical resources that are in short supply, and those that do should look to the research side to find alternatives.  The limitation is the willingness of the sole source of dollars in this country to use those dollars to employ people.
