Jobs Drought in America’s Heartland
Darrell Turner is a proud member of Pipeliners Local 798 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and he knows first-hand the toll that this recession is taking on America’s construction industry. For Darrell and other working families in our Heartland, the Keystone XL pipeline means 20,000 immediate jobs—and as many as 500,000 indirect jobs—just as soon as President Obama gives it the green light.

Hollywood splash in Washington, DC
Meanwhile, millionaire actress Daryl Hannah likes putting on a big show being arrested while protesting the Keystone XL pipeline. The Hollywood set will fly back to Washington this weekend for another demonstration against this jobscreating initiative. Hannah and her friends are trying to kill the Keystone XL pipeline by presenting the tired old false choice of energy vs. environment.

BuT we know that America’s trade unionists are the safest, best-trained and most environmentally responsible workers in the world. They can do the job right, and that’s why we back the Keystone XL pipeline 100%. We urge President Obama to stand with working families in the Heartland—not with the Hollywood elite—on the Keystone XL pipeline. False choices might be just fine for those who believe in mermaids. But for people like Darrell Turner, it’s time to deal with the real challenge of putting this country back to work.

Call President Obama tOday at 202.456.1111

and tell him to say yes to the Keystone XL pipeline. With his signature, he can put this jobs plan into action.
