Is YOUR state faking the jobs saved/created by the stimulus bill?

Here's a great little interactive map that details the erroneous jobs created or saved by state (with original sources)!

  • Yes because of the fact they started lots of projects and have "hired" lots of construction workers right before winter... well winter in Alaska isn't prime construction weather. So all those "jobs" that "hired" people have those "hired" people on hold. So those "jobs" wont resume until warmer weather so those "hired" are not working but technically have a job that wont pay them a dime till the work resumes! Wonderful huh?

  • Honey, seriously... there are sooo many jobs available right now where I am, on the contrary, it's finding people who WANT to work. Too many people would rather sit on their lazy asses and not work..

  • Anon :31, Please post where you live, there are many people here on CM who would have no problem relocating to your area and fill those jobs. City and state, please. And maybe a link to the local want ads showing all the available jobs? It would be really helpful. Thanks!

  • The other day someone posted anon about how well the economy was doing in their area.  Since they were anon, it's impossible to find out where that area was. They weren't saying. 

    They must be from the State of Denial, which came into being January 2009.  I heard it's lovely there.

  • Lil job fairy anon has been whining about that for days, but if they're really trying so hard to hire someone, wouldn't it make sense to say WHERE these mystery jobs are?

  • State of Denial - too freakin' funny! Apparently, this anon (maybe the same anon as in another post stating there are tons of jobs in her area) is just blowing it out her butt to make out like Obama IS, indeed, succeeding - which I don't think he is at this point in time. If your area truly has so many jobs, please, by all means, share the wealth! I have nothing to keep me here and would gladly relocate to have a job!
