It's not ANWR. There are only about 7,000 Teamsters in Alaska, and none of them work in oil fields.
What a insanely stupid statement!
He's basically saying, "Hoffa doesn't want Teamster oil-drilling jobs in Alaska because there are none there."
It is stupid. Many of the jobs created will not be in Alaska. The Teamsters have made clear they are after the jobs drilling in ANWR will create in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Drilling pipe, construction equipment, nuts and bolts are not going to be manufactured on the North Slope of Alaska. They will be made in the lower 48 or overseas and somebody will haul them north.
