The federal government's stimulus project is one-year-old.
The Congressional Budget Office says the stimulus plan created more than 2 million jobs last year. Is there a catch to the 15,000 jobs the government says it has brought to Indiana between October and December of 2009?
The federal government lists jobs associated with stimulus money on its website (www.recovery.gov). Fox Fort Wayne investigated jobs the stimulus site listed. We found many jobs are often difficult to nail down. Links to the site fail to take job hunters to a job posting despite clicking on several links.
It can also be difficult to decipher which jobs actually are linked to stimulus money.
To date Indiana has been awarded more than $4 billion dollars in stimulus money. Only about 25% has actually been received.
