Two former Keystone pipeline workers, unemployed because of a Joe Biden executive order signed on his first day in office, said on Monday that many of the pipeline workers have been unable to find employment after being laid off.
During an appearance on “Fox & Friends First,” Lynn Allen, a pipeline worker laid off from his Keystone XL job in Texas, says he cannot find a job since Biden ordered the project to cease.
“You think about it every minute of every day,” said Allen, also adding his family is “on hold” while attempting to find a new job.
Guy Williams, a retired Keystone pipeline worker, said that many of his former employees cannot find employment.
“There’s quite a few people. There’s a lot of welders, pipeline people that live in my general area and a lot of young guys. And I know some that used to work for me when I was working in the trades. But they don’t have anywhere to go,” said Williams.
Biden is expected to unveil his $3 trillion infrastructure plan on Wednesday that will focus on creating new “clean energy jobs.” Liberals believe that former oil and gas workers will end up taking these jobs.
“None of that fits my plan. I’m a welder. That’s what I’ve been doing. And him wanting to rebuild the middle class in cutting welding jobs and cutting oil and gas,” said Allen. “The oil and gas is pretty much the heart of the middle class and the upper class. The oil and gas is what drives the United States and the world. And he cuts everything out from us.”
