Corruption/slang version of Bourgeoisie from the 1930s/40s era, most commonly heard in Populist, Socialist, and Union talk.
See Wikipedia for more on Bourgeoisie
The common pronunciation of Bourgeoisie as
boo - zhwah should be self-explanatory for this.
Bushwa was a bridge word for many people in those times, it could mean Bourgeoisie or Bullshit or both at the same time

This is a semi-phonetic corruption of the the word bourgeois. The blues singer (and communist) Leadbelly wrote a song called the Bourgeois Blues. The refrain was: Its a bushwa town, Its a bushwa town.
Bushwa is used to indicate that something is reactionary or allied with the property class. Leadbelly wrote the song in 1946 in disgust at being denied service at Washington D.C. restaurants.
