Last week, construction on the Keystone XL oil pipeline was stopped as Biden’s issued his executive order that revoked the permit.
"the United States and the world face a climate crisis. That crisis must be met with action on a scale and at a speed commensurate with the need to avoid setting the world on a dangerous, potentially catastrophic, climate trajectory. Leaving the Keystone XL pipeline permit in place would not be consistent with my Administration's economic and climate imperatives."
Keystone XL President Richard Prior said over 1,000 jobs, the majority unionized, will be eliminated over the coming weeks.
At a press conference on Friday workers and a couple of Republican members of congress spoke about the job losses because Biden's executive order.
Wisconsin Republican Rep. Bryan Steil says that Biden's order "killed thousands of American jobs...Joe Biden's decision makes us more dependent on the Middle East. More dependent on Russia. More dependent on Venezuela for our supply of energy."
One worker said that “hundreds of guys” have already been laid off from their job as a result of Biden’s order.
Last week, Sen. Ted Cruz grilled Pete Buttigieg during his confirmation hearing to become Biden’s next transportation secretary.
Sen Cruz pointed out that with the stroke of a pen, President Biden has told those 11,000 workers, those union workers, 'Your jobs are gone.' Mr. Buttigieg, what do you say to those workers whose jobs have just been eliminated by presidential edict?"
Buttigieg ridiculously responded that they’ll get different jobs. In other words, learn to code.
One laid off Keystone XL Pipeline worker told Fox that Biden's order is "going to hurt a lot of families. A lot of communities"
