Donald Trump would like to be known as the Jobs President. But one of his first actions after taking office was to institute a federal hiring freeze. That means thousands of jobs are being left vacant indefinitely until the administration passes a budget that decimates federal jobs for good.

Gizmodo has filed over a dozen Freedom of Information Act requests to gain an understanding of how the hiring freeze is affecting various agencies. Last week we showed you the vacant jobs at NASA and noted that it’s mighty hard to get to Mars if the space agency isn’t allowed to hire aerospace engineers. Today we have a list of all the jobs currently vacant at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Based on information compiled from documents released to Gizmodo, the USPTO currently has 290 vacancies that it can’t fill because of Trump’s stupid hiring freeze. That’s certainly less than a place like the Defense Logistics Agency (currently sitting at 817 vacancies, some of which are being negotiated for the exemption on defense jobs), but more than other agencies like NASA, which has 39 vacancies. Again, these numbers are expected to grow as the hiring freeze continues.

But Donald Trump would like you to believe that no negotiation with business is too small, and that every job counts. And if it does, perhaps he can lift the federal hiring freeze so that the USPTO can hire people for all the jobs listed below—from the 64 vacant positions for IT specialists to the six vacant positions for patent examiners.

We’ll keep you posted as more documents come in. One list we’re looking forward to in particular? The Department of Interior, where Trump just donated his paycheck. On Monday, the White House handed representatives of the National Park Service a check for $78,333, covering Trump’s first couple of months in office. He’s proposed cutting the DOI’s budget by about $1.5 billion.
