The jobs will go to the low bid contractor. So it could be a large contractor or a small contractor. A lot of jobs like the ones being moved forward have larger contractors as the prime and smaller contractors as subs.
Before people can feel secure in their jobs the have to have a job. It sounds like you're advocating for trickle down economics. I would think if large companies got a tax break they'd use the money to make sure the people at the top are secure in ther jobs before they'd try to make the little guy feel secure. A good way to do that is to pay down their debt. Paying off their debt probably won't work as well for job creation as actually funding a project that will produce jobs right now."It's not that she said anything that wasn't true, it's that what she did say has almost no relation to the truth." - Rubicon

I fit that demographic; I'm struggling not due to the economy but to divorce and medical bills. But the "economic recovery" will take money out of my pocket and give it to someone else who is possibly struggling due to poor economic choices, bad investments, or maybe just because they're lucky enough to work for a contractor who gets a recovery gig?
