    The private sector isn't hiring. There is plenty of work to do and lots of people willing to do it. Over 70 to 90 thousand bridges, roads, tunnels and schools are in exteme disrepair. We need to upgrade our telecommunications infrastructure, power grids and build high speed rail.

    Would be a great way to turn a recession into a renaissance.

    But do you take an unemployed office worker and attempt to retrain him to construction. The Job bill proposes that an unemployed person get some type of "training" while looking for new employment. At least that is how I read it from the article.
