The theory is that while people are unemployed, you might as well put them to work doing something productive. It doesn't do the nation any good to have people sitting on their duff when they could be building better roads or fixing things.

So the government pays them, they take that money and spend it, which helps businesses. Businesses then have more money to invest, they begin to grow, and they start adding jobs.

The key is to make sure the government jobs, which act as the catalyst for growth, are cut back once the economy starts adding jobs. If this isn't managed well (which often it is not), then you get overspending and severe deficit problems.

If Obama can successfully cut spending once the economy is running well, then he will have succeeded. Problem for him is that a second wave of economic recession is coming, due to no fault of his own, which will derail his ability to cut the deficit. He'll get voted out in 2012 if the GOP plays its cards right.
Thats one of the things Obama said his spending would creat jobs but I don't see that happening. The ones they posted on their site we find out that most of them are false. I actually don't think they are trying to creat goverment jobs to help build roads its the contractors that will get the contracts and hire.

Well, whether it's an actual government job, or a government-funded job that contractors actually hire, it's six to one half dozen or the other. Either way, the point is that the government is supporting those employees, and it can't afford to do it forever. It must cut the government funding for the job once the economy is rolling along at a level that can sustain the job on its own.

Back to normal...saying the 55 hires are previously-eliminated jobs? That's 0 net jobs.


GREAT NEWS THOUGH for the company, workers and families.

Plus, temporary Census positions are usually being counted and applauded as new jobs.

The ACTUAL unemployment # is being estimated just under 20%.

What's productive about discussing an unemployment rate? Posting opinions about who's at fault doesn't change the fact that they're still unemployed.

around January of last year around 75 people were laid off. another 35 or so retired. since then, all 75 have been called back. plus the 55 new hires. that equals 55 net jobs. or 130 if you count the call backs. my point was i usually see the mood of the economy in my job. right now things are moving upward. my statement really wasn't meant to be political. just trying to relay a trend

I think what he's trying to say is that you're not a product of intelligent design.
