HEARTBREAKING: Keystone XL Pipeline Workers Speak Out About Lost Jobs Following Biden Cancellation of Project

21

President Trump warned that Joe Biden would destroy the energy industry if elected POTUS, because of the influence that the far-Left environmentalists have within the Democrat Party. But the union heads didn’t care. They endorsed Joe Biden anyway. Shame on them.

No media coverage of what’s really happening out there, Just a Mao-style cultural revolution based on big lies like “insurrection!” (never happened),  bogus “impeachment” proceedings  (more like the illegitimate, fraud part impeaching half the country) …..

Keystone XL Pipeline Workers Speak Out About Lost Jobs Following Biden Cancellation of Project

“This is not a time to be making political statements. We need to be finding ways to put more Americans back to work, not the other way around”

By Legal Insurrection, January 26, 2021

Joe Biden’s decision to eliminate the Keystone XL Pipeline is killing jobs and hurting Americans. Unions that endorsed Biden are already speaking out against the decision.

So are the workers who are losing their jobs.

Teny Sahakian reports at FOX News:

Laid-off Keystone XL worker says decision to cancel pipeline ‘is going to hurt a lot of people’

In his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed an executive order to halt the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, which was meant to transport Canadian crude oil to the U.S., citing the climate-change crisis as the reason.

The move swiftly eliminated the estimated 11,000 U.S. jobs – including 8,000 union jobs – the project would have sustained in 2021.

Neal Crabtree, a welding foreman who began working on pipeline construction as an apprentice in 1997, was dismayed when he heard the news.

“This is not a time to be making political statements. We need to be finding ways to put more Americans back to work, not the other way around,” he said in an interview with Fox News.

A member of Pipeliners Local Union 798, one of four unions whose members will be left without work due to the pipeline’s cancellation, the 46-year-old welder from Arkansas was among the first to be laid off following the order. At the time the cross-border permits for the pipeline were rescinded, he and his team were in Nebraska working on a pump station for Keystone XL.

See Mr. Crabtree’s video below:

Here’s a video from a manager on the Keystone XL Pipeline:

Here’s one more. Strong language warning:

The left and the media are already rushing to Biden’s defense and downplaying the loss of jobs. Check out the ruling from ‘Politifact’ below, via WRAL News:

PolitiFact ruling

A Facebook post says that Biden’s executive order revoking the Keystone XL pipeline “is destroying 11,000 jobs.”

That number is an estimate, and the claim lacks context about the longevity of Keystone jobs.

TC Energy said more than 1,000 people are out of work because of Biden’s executive order. In October, the company said it expected to employ more than 11,000 Americans in 2021 and generate more than $1.6 in gross wages.

But both TC Energy and the State Department have said the majority of those jobs would be temporary. A 2014 report found that the company would need only 50 employees to maintain the Keystone XL pipeline once it’s finished, 35 of them permanent.

Temporary jobs are still jobs. But this post could leave the wrong impression without full context. We rate it Half True.

Killing the Keystone XL Pipeline was a dumb and destructive idea. It is killing jobs and will threaten our energy independence. No amount of media spin will change this.
