Stimulus Jobs In Oregon -- Last Only One Week

"In Oregon, where lawmakers are spending $176 million to supplement the federal stimulus, Democrats are taking credit for a remarkable feat: creating 3,236 new jobs in the program's first three months. But those jobs lasted on average only 35 hours, or about one work week. After that, those workers were effectively back unemployed."

Is this any surprise? Stimulus jobs are artificially created outside of the free market and thus have less sustainability than a job legitimately created as necessity by the free market.
