You only have to listen to Rhea Mayolo speak for about 45 seconds to see and hear that DOT's stimulus spending is working. That's when, in our latest Voices of the Recovery Act video interview, Rhea says:
"The stimulus? For me it's great. I came from nothing, and now I have a job that is a future for me. Not just a job, an actual career. And I love it."
If you only watch one of our growing "Voices" series, please, watch this one.
"I was working for a truss manufacturing plant and waitressing. Trying to make ends meet because I was pretty poor, living on food stamps and energy assistance."
Struggling to work two different jobs while raising a family, and still not making it.
That's why President Obama wanted the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009: to create good jobs. And that's exactly what it has done for tens of thousands of American workers like Rhea, like Keith Kist, like Sean Langois.
And those good jobs are for good projects--preparing our transportation infrastructure, smoothing the roadways, waterways, and railways to move goods and people the way a prosperous 21st century economy must.
