$26,000,000,000 for 300,000 jobs

  1. Probably more, since public sector employees are probably paid effectively more than private employees (given salary, benefits, job security, and comparative job requirements).

    Of course, this all assumes that the purpose of this spending is to (temporarily) save the most productive jobs, rather than to grease the palms of public employee unions right before midterm elections.
