    There are divisions in the labor community on the issue as this piece from the American Prospect highlights well: http://prospect.org/...

    The Amalgamated Transit Union, the Transport Workers Union, National Nurses United, and the Domestic Workers Alliance are all opposed.

    And as the Prospect article also implies, it seems very doubtful that the jobs created would even be union jobs considering that many of the pipeline's strongest backers are virulently anti-union.

      front, and they generally have been for the KXL pipeline.

      These trade unions, such as the Laborers, expect they will
      be building the pipeline, so your expectation about no union jobs is not an assumption shared by those construction trade unions.

    •  The Oklahoma-Texas leg (0+ / 0-)

      that's currently under construction is all union. Its rare for construction in those states to go all union.

      Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
