What kind of jobs and what will they pay? It is good news as long as they are good jobs that pay at least a decent wage.

So, what kind of jobs will there be? It is good when someone does what they promise they will do. It is in all of our best interests to have jobs created around the country. The layoffs have just recently hit my locale, but we are hoping they are temporary.

I am sure that Pittsburgh needs the jobs, with the way the steel industry is going right now. It is good to see a mayor standing up and doing what he promised he would do. To bad we didn't have more people like him. Hopefully, the Steelers will do well this weekend in the draft as well. Go Steelers!!

That's the only way they will ever cure the ills of our economy. People loosing their jobs is what has brought this on us and putting people back to work is the only thing that will cure it. They learned this during the last depression. This bail out stuff will not work. This was the first thing they tried during the last depression. It didn't work then and it won't work now. This is proven fact and I cannot6 understand why they would even consider it again. Someone must not have read up on the history of the last depression. It was proven you must pump money in at the bottom of our economy and then let it trickle up all the way from the consumer to the producers. All these billions should have gone to the states where they could create jobs. It doesn't matter if it is people out picking up trash off the highways or building new roads pay the working people to do it. Keep the wages as low as possible where you can employ as many people as possible. Right now we should be thinking about getting the most good out of the tax dollars that are spent on the stimulation of our economy. Don't worry about what the money is spent for as long as it pays as many people as possible a weekly paycheck. Spread the money out as thin as you can all over this nation. All the states, counties and cities should be doing exactly what the Mayor of Pittsburgh is. That is the only way to cure our economy. But... This bunch of idiots we have in Washington now have wasted all the money now and we don't have anything left to work with. By the time these jerks figure this out all we will hear is how much they would do if they just had the money and then up goes our taxes even more. Art

Well, that is certainly good to hear. I have to ask though, what sort of jobs are they? what industry? Are they temporary? Id the number of jobs equal to the number of jobs lost in the last year? What happens when the federal funding for the projects created runs out, is the state of Pensilvania going to have to pick up the tab for those projects in 2 years? There are a lot of things to consider and we should be carefull to not just look on the surface at the good news, there are often many layers of bad news below it. My governor, a democrat I might add, is refusing some of that stimulus money because in two years, the federal money dries up on it and my state will be stuck with the continuing bill for years to come and we simply do not have the money to pay for it.

Yes, that's very good news! There's a chance those 1500 jobs will grow into more jobs, etc., etc. I don't mean more jobs in the same places, I mean the added business from more people being employed will spur more business, creating more jobs. That sort of sounds like a STIMULUS to me, how about you? Annie
