Of course, unless you actually believe that there's a substitution effect in place here (and somehow I don't think there was much else these workers would be doing), these are probably people that stayed employed who would have otherwise been laid off.

That's also much harder to evaluate but also much harder to criticize, so it's easy for the Post run around with headlines like this.
