Highway construction companies are falling on hard times.
The month the stimulus passed, February of this year, 6,593,000 Americans were employed in construction; in the most recent report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 5,966,000 Americans were employed in that field. In other words, while all of this stimulus-based construction was going on, the profession lost 627,000 jobs.Yeah, this was a good idea. [Title stolen shamelessly from Ace. He had even less shame!]
