How's that stimulus working for ya?

From this report by the Associated General Contractors of America has the following paragraphs:

Construction employment continued to shrink in most American communities as 313 out of 337 metro areas lost construction jobs between January 2009 and January 2010 according to a new analysis of federal employment figures released today by the Associated General Contractors of America. The figures underscore just how hard hit the construction industry has been nationwide, association officials noted.


and


Eau Claire, Wisconsin added the most construction jobs (500) between January 2009 and January 2010, and experienced the largest percentage increase (23 percent) Simonson noted. Other cities adding construction jobs included Ithaca, New York (9 percent, 100 jobs); Michigan City, Indiana (6 percent, 100 jobs); Waterbury, Connecticut (5 percent, 100 jobs); and Grand Forks, North Dakota and Minnesota (5 percent, 100 jobs).


Who are we supposed to believe? Joe Biden or the trade group? That is a tough one.
