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

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.
