    Default Hoffa: Keystone Pipeline Would Boost Middle Class

    I have one little question here. How do they know it would be Teamsters that would be employed to work on this pipeline?
    Jobs might not be in such short supply like they once were in Michigan and elsewhere. But good-paying jobs still are. That’s why the Teamsters support the Keystone XL pipeline project that would allow North America to produce more of the world’s oil supply. And that’s why Michigan’s elected officials should too.

    Completing the final segment of the pipeline from Nebraska to the Canadian border would employ upwards of 2,500 Teamsters and would infuse millions of dollars into local economies. That’s not just where the pipeline is being built either — it’s right here in Michigan, where suppliers could see substantial growth.

    How’s that possible? Because a project of this magnitude will require thousands of pieces of equipment like American-made vehicles to be purchased, and those vehicles will need to be kept up with new parts. Similar projects have resulted in automotive companies building facilities to service vehicles. There is no reason to think that wouldn’t happen here as well.

    They don't. Stringing trucks. Floats. Pretty much anything with rubber on the ground. A big maybe.

    Another big desire of the right is that they think somehow Americans will somehow own this. Highly doubtful imo. Mexico had or has nationalized oil. That is a mortal sin to rightwingers. Privatize is the name of their game. Most probably foreign corporations will " own" it. No coroiration is dedicated to America so why should America dedicate to a corporate pipeline. They should buy there own.
    Guarantee that large amounts of union workers will have jobs with the pipeline forevermore start till its no longer used, to offset political power and preserve sovereignty of our workers and maybe I'd think about it. When the worlds economy was destroyed they upped their profits and price. They should EXPECT nothing for free with no strings attached imo.

    There would be lot's of Teamsters involved with the building of the pipeline,..

    When that's done all of the oil get's shipped to china and the American people will see none of that,...

    But, We would get to pay the clean up costs and suffer when the pipeline leaks and contaminates the Ogallala aquifer,...Ogallala Aquifer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And at some point it will leak,......
    crazy, 222lifer and slavenomore like this.
