Pipeline jobs or pipe dreams? Cornell report blasts rosy jobs estimates for Keystone XL

September 29th, 2011

A Cornell University study has found that the controversial Keystone XL tar sands pipeline may employ far fewer American workers than promised by the pipeline’s owners.

Though touted as employing 20,000 workers, the project may only employ 2,500-4,650 temporary direct construction workers in the U.S. along the pipeline’s route from Alberta to Texas, according to the report “Pipe Dreams: Jobs Lost, Jobs Gained by Keystone XL” by Cornell’s Global Labor Institute.
