<<<<<<< <<“The Oregon AFL-CIO is solidly in support of a proposed liquid natural gas terminal along the Columbia River near Astoria,” the labor federation said in a press statement Wednesday,“The facility will create 450 construction jobs over three years, plus 65 permanent living-wage jobs, and generate $7.8 million a year in taxes for Clatsop County.”>>>>> >>
Of course they, Oregon AFL-CIO, are and this is the "Real story".....3+ years of focussed jobs with likely "Transient Union Personnel" and profiteering by approved vendors and suppliers.
This is not about 65 end jobs, that few locals will qualify for and property taxes that will be eaten up and negated by the costs in daily security to get that LNG to these sites and the loss of land use by those property owners whose land, if not willingly signed over to these "Energy Speculators" abetted by our State Government, will be taken from them to transport "Pressurised Natural Gas" to everywhere but your furnace of hot watrer heater.
And, really, does "Labor" give a crap?

So what if many locals don't qualify for most of the jobs? How many retirees have moved into your community over the past decade, yet you welcome them with open arms. Why not welcome well paid employees of the LNG plant?
