Americans Voted for Jobs - It's Time to Build the Keystone XL Pipeline

The Following Statement was released today by Sean McGarvey, President - Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO:
WASHINGTON, DC -- Seemingly lost in the post-Election analysis is the indisputable fact that a strong majority of American voters listed the economy and jobs as the most important issues that influenced their vote.  In fact, according to Election Day exit polling, 6 out of every 10 voters ranked the economy as the top issue, far ahead of health care, the federal budget deficit, or foreign policy.


With these numbers in mind, our organizations today are calling upon President Barack Obama to move swiftly to issue the final permitting for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
