Obama Jobs A Joke?
Sherm Frederick has new piece out called “The Cruel Joke of ‘Obama Jobs.’
He focuses on the ‘green jobs’ myth by highlighting one particular company.
Johnson Controls Inc. received $300 million in grants from the Obama Crew to build high-tech batteries. That produced 150 jobs at Johnson Controls. You do the math on the cost per job.
Ok, I’ll do the math. 150 jobs @ $300 million = $2 million per job. The national average salary is a little over $50k. I guarantee these 150 people aren’t making anywhere near $2 million.
Sherm has pointed out yet another example of the fallacy of ‘Obama Jobs.’
A friend of mine recently went on a job interview in which they were told that stimulus jobs were alive and well with that company. Great! But at what cost.
Has stimulus money created jobs? Of course. Has it created enough jobs? No. Do the jobs created justify the expenditure? Not even close!
Let’s not forget, Obama is running a jobs deficit. In other words, more people have lost their jobs than Obama’s policies have created. So the plan is a miserable failure according to any objective analysis.
Recently, we discovered that the Obama stimulus jobs created cost the taxpayer $278k per job. Again, national average salary is just above $50k. To create one job, the federal government is spending 556% more than the national average in salary.
In other words, the government could simply have cut a $100,000 check to everyone whose employment was allegedly made possible by the “stimulus,” and taxpayers would have come out $427 billion ahead
