    The jobs sniff test:

    1. Is a product or service created that has a real market? It might be a job go to #2
    2. Would this position normally be held by someone outside of government?
    3. If a saved job, did the person keep it at a reduced wage? I think a saved job should show some
    sacrifice by employer and employee.
    4. Is it reasonable to say the job will last for a year or more?

    According to the government standards, since I got a raise this year, my job is counted as a saved one.
