Obama’s Drilling Moratorium Has Not Increased Unemployment in Gulf Region, Administration Report
ap ^ | 9/16/10 | Erica Werner

Posted on 09/16/2010 10:29:23 AM PDT by Nachum

Washington - The deepwater drilling moratorium in the Gulf of Mexico has not increased unemployment in the region, says a new report from the Obama administration that counters the dire predictions of oil industry officials and Gulf Coast residents. The report, being released at a Senate hearing Thursday, said the moratorium imposed after the BP oil spill might have temporarily cost 8,000 to 12,000 jobs on oil rigs and elsewhere. But it found no net job loss in the region, thanks in part to a big hiring push for cleanup crews and massive spending

What has happened to “under” employment, though? Surely folks who used to be harvesting lucrative batches of seafood or staffing oil drilling facilities for a handsome pay aren’t getting the same wages to skim water and wash oiled birds, are they?

SO, they admit that they cost 8-12 thousand jobs, but claim that’s OK because of hiring for cleanup? But that’s done now. And if they hadn’t imposed the moratorium, MORE people would have had jobs, so it did INCREASE unemployment over what it would have been without the moratorium.

Or to put it in the Administration Venacular: Their moratorium killed or failed to create jobs.

All during the Bush years we kept hearing that even though unemployment was going down and more people were working the majority of the new jobs were flipping burgers and making fries at McDonalds. Now they are trumpeting that they have destroyed 8,000 to 12,000 long-term skilled positions but they offset it with unskilled temporary clean up? Granted a lot of Americans are stupid but this is ridiculous.

TOTAL BS.

How can any ‘reporter’ ever keep saying these things???

Reporters are going to be on a hit list during & after the chaos that is coming.

They have been committing treason, IMO.

Exactly. These are some of the highest paying blue-collar jobs around. And the numbers will go down when the temporary clean up jobs go away.

The media aren't just spinning for Barry any more, they are outright lying for him.

Like I said last night...I truly believe that there are dire national security implications to Obama’s wholesale destruction of our oil industry. If we don’t stop him and the democrats by a victory in November..this country is toast.

My wife’s uncle was a crane operator on a rig that was within sight of the Deepwater Horizon rig. His rig was shut down and has already been moved to Africa. Everyone on his rig that was unwilling/unable to work in Africa lost their jobs.

Yesterday I rode a crewboat back to shore that was carrying the entire crew of a drilling rig that had been idled by the moratorium. Almost all of the crew will lose their jobs. It was not a happy ride.

This idiot-ridden administration has fudged and manipulated so many government reports and lied so much, that even if this was close to being accurate, they are lying, period. Again, if the AnnointedIdiot’s lips are moving, or anyone in his administration, is moving their lips, they are all lying, period! =.=

Not all jobs are created equal, nor are the paychecks.

I seriously doubt picking up tarballs paid as well as a driller or rig hand offshore--and how long are the cleanup crews going to be employed?

As reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Administration forged ahead with plans to stop all drilling in water depths over 500 feet until November 30, even though its own estimates showed the ban would cost some 23,000 job.

*******

the state of Louisiana, 2005 figures estimate 15.4 percent of total household earnings could be traced back to these earnings, amounting to some $12.7 billion dollars. The moratorium will lead to a cessation of worker training, as well as job losses among those already employed in these industries. One estimate by a consulting firm places total job losses by 2014 at 120,000. Many of these job losses would be outside the “big” oil companies that have become synonymous with the area, as Gulf oil exploration was essentially pioneered by smaller energy companies.
