The stimulus program created jobs for women

Apparently, this was a bad thing?

oh noes

Yeah, I don’t get the argument either.

I’m happy to agree that unemployment is too high among both women and men, and that political leaders should take steps both to reinforce safety net programs and to hopefully bring about economic recovery. No arguments there.

But criticizing existing programs because they don’t create enough jobs for men — well, given the deeply problematic history of employment in this country, that just seems wrong. Government programs which help working women should be celebrated.
